Data Scientist Jobs

Organisations are increasingly using and collecting larger amounts of data during their everyday operations and Data Scientist Jobs write programs to analyse data sets. They are normally in charge of statistical analysis, machine learning and predictive modelling and turn raw data into meaningful information that organisations can use to improve their businesses. 

This is a rapidly developing job and covers predicting what people will buy to using data to find patterns and help solve the problems faced by businesses in innovative and imaginative ways.

You'll extract, analyse and interpret large amounts of data from a range of sources, using algorithmic, data mining, artificial intelligence, machine learning and statistical tools, in order to make it accessible to businesses. You will then present your results using clear and engaging language.

Data scientists are in high demand across a number of sectors, as businesses require people with the right combination of technical, analytical and communication skills.
