The field of analytics encompasses a huge array of titles and responsibilities, and in a data-obsessed world, this doesn’t look like this is going to change anytime soon. Every year, analytics professionals are in more and more demand, and so too are the technical skills needed to pilot modern tech.
From digital analytics jobs to business analytics, there are many different titles, but there’s plenty of crossover, and you’ll often find a range of different analytics specialists working together in the same function. There are plenty of unique distinctions between the roles, for example, data analytics professionals work very closely with (you guessed it) data, gathering it, interpreting it, storing it and articulating their findings, whereas business analytics roles are generally geared towards making strategic decisions.
In the realms of business protection and business enablement, analytics functions can often prove to be essential, particularly in areas like fintech, compliance, consulting, banking, and legal. Nowadays, nearly every tech-enabled business has some form of analytical reporting. As the world continues to produce vast amounts of data, businesses with the people to interpret that data and leverage it to their advantage will likely have the sharpest competitive edge.
While most analytics professionals possess a wide range of hard skills and qualifications in the data world, starting out in the space isn’t as difficult as it once was. In many ways, necessity has been the driving force behind this change – as demand rises, opportunities have done the same. Plenty of communities now provide entry-level training and key skills courses for people wanting to enter the field of analytics, opening up the talent pool at a time when attracting and retaining candidates is extremely tough.
Here at Broadgate, we work closely with a range of communities to support and nurture top analytical candidates of all levels, from the executive level, all the way through to the junior level. Our expansive community-led talent network enables us to pinpoint people that would otherwise be invisible to recruiters, allowing us to fill even the most niche and highly technical roles. If you happen to be on the lookout for some top analytical talent of your own, then it’s worth thinking about outsourcing your efforts to a third-party recruitment agency. In a talent-short market, a recruitment process can take up a great deal of precious resources, and there’s no guarantee you’ll find the right candidate the first time.
At Broadgate, we take a right-first-time approach to our staffing solutions, and we do it with the help of our specialist consultants, who possess a comprehensive understanding of the recruitment market, and have the experience, tools, techniques, and passion required to deliver the best results.
If you have any questions at all about our products or services, our diversity-led hiring methodology, or our people, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with the team today, we’d love to support your company. Similarly, if you’re looking for a job in analytics, we can support you on your journey towards an exciting and fulfilling new career.
