  • Familiarity with modern business intelligence tools
  • Strong numerical abilities
  • Understanding of common analytic methodologies and keenness to master advanced techniques (such as statistical machine learning methods)
Soft skills
  • Ability to work effectively with stakeholders across the business (such as IT, commercial functions and senior executives)
  • Clear, succinct and accurate communication, avoiding jargon and adding structure where appropriate
  • Able to give others the confidence to leverage analytics for major commercial decisions
At heart, the Data Scientist Consultant will be a curious problem solver. They will balance the need for scientific rigors with the need to move quickly, and be comfortable in dealing with uncertainty. They will be constantly prioritizing their time in order to deliver the most impact to the business as quickly as possible.

  • Promotes new ideas that may be contrary to commonly held opinion
