Job Details

Associate Director/Director of Data science sought by this fascinating consultancy that help the world’s leading technology led companies to understand the interactions between people and the technology they use in everyday life.

The Company

This medium size consultancy has its heritage in anthropology, business consultancy, digital product development, data and design. They have enjoyed strong growth in their data science division and seek to add an AD or Director to the team. 

Their focus is on helping technology- led businesses invent better futures by creating products, services and business models that drive sustainable growth. They use a combination of social and data science to give their clients a foundational understanding of the world, their customers and their organisations. The data science team do this by interrogating client data (big data), survey and social data to enable them to garner rich insights that clients can implement to help grow their offers and business. 

The Role

Due to continued growth our client is looking to add a further senior to the team. You will work closely with the head of the division in this leadership role.

To be successful in this role you will have exceptional knowledge and understanding of data science methods and tools, and ideally you will be experienced in working with both big data and survey data. Experience of coding in either R or Python and knowledge of SQL are essential and you will also have excellent knowledge of statistics as well. Your knowledge and judgement will be central in making sure the right combinations of methods are applied to solve specific problems.

In this role you will take on project, area and team leadership responsibilities, and will play an instrumental role in the development of their social and data science integration. You will be able to both lead work on projects with clients, and act as a sounding board and mentor to less experienced members of the data science team.

The tools and methods they use enable them to advise and consult with clients; therefore you will have the ability to translate analysis into insights that are compelling and that clients understand clearly.

You will add extra knowledge and credibility to a friendly and dynamic team and will be joining a company that will help you to reach your goals and aspirations.

If a role where you will produce impactful, insight-driven work with the potential to change how millions of people understand and interact with technology excites you then we would love to hear from you to tell you more.


We are a recruitment consultancy specialising in executive positions within the market research and other related industries. The word consultancy is chosen with care as we are not a paperpunting agency. We always offer honest, considered advice and appropriate introductions.
