Data and Analytics Market Review

Harnham Data and Anlytics Market Review

Anyone working in analytics will know as well as I do that things move fast. The pace of change and evolution in the market means that each year presents new challenges and opportunities for us all. As I write this, we are busy planning our 10th anniversary celebrations; since the first day Simon and I started working from a couple of desks in his lounge back in 2006, we’ve immersed ourselves in data and analytics, and now Harnham is filled with a thriving team who are equally as passionate about the market as we are.
Harnham’s Market Insight

2016 saw us release our latest data and analytics salary guide. Apologies to those who had issues downloading it – our website was overwhelmed by the 900 people who downloaded it in the first few hours alone! It yet again, emphasised many interesting points about the market, whether you’re hiring or being hired. If you would like more information on anything from this year’s guide, feel free to get in touch with one of the team.

Beyond the UK, 2016 has been a busy year. Harnham’s international expansion has continued apace – in the last year, we have welcomed Alex Hutchings as Director of our European business and Craig Brown as Managing Director of Harnham USA. With these two additions, we now have consultants working in 11 countries across Europe alongside our growing UK and USA teams, meaning we are more equipped than ever to support you in any of these regions.

As well as learning to say resume rather than CV, the team in the USA has also shared their tips on strategic CV writing and how to overcome hiring challenges

Data And Analytics Is Moving On

Over the last few years, data and analytics has spread its reach far and wide. Data science in particular, has continued to grow as a discipline, moving it from “must-have title” and industry buzzword to a clearly defined discipline.

For graduates entering that market, the options are broad and potentially bewildering. So, Harvey offered solid advice for graduates in his recent article.

As fast as the market is developing, it is not without its struggles, as seen in Jethro’s post about why it is hard to build a Big Data team, whilst Ross detailed why Business Intelligence is often considered “old news”.

Beyond simply focusing on analytics and data, we’ve created commentary on topics important to us this year. As a new dad, I wrote about what I see the challenges working parents face and what I believe companies can do to support them.

With all this activity, let’s not forget about the over 500 people we have found roles in the last 12 months! All in all – it’s been a busy start to the year, with more to come!
