The Five Ws Of Becoming A Data Scientist

The demand for Data Scientists has dramatically increased over the past five years. Research has shown that skills such as Data Science, SQL databases, Big Data and Machine Learning have been the most sought after by British employers in this period, with demand tripling by over 200 per cent.  This growth has been accelerated since the start of the pandemic. As businesses faced an unprecedented crisis, with no prior knowledge of how to manage, adapt or survive, leaders needed to turn to data to make informed business decisions to help them navigate the unknown.  Even though we are already now on the path to economic recovery, this need for data-driven knowledge won’t dissipate any time soon. From being able to create in-depth risk forecasts to gathering consumer sentiment, creating intelligent solutions, and using automation to reduce bottom-line costs; Data Science’s role will continue to be the backbone of success as companies steer through this ‘new normal’.  Nevertheless, despite the ever-growing appetite for Data Scientists and the number of available roles and opportunities escalating day-by-day, businesses are coming up against the brick wall of a shortage of specialists. According to IBM, Data Science roles remain unfulfilled for 45 days or longer and the UK is having to combat a £2bn Data skills shortage.  So, as a student, graduate or current Data Scientist looking to move into a more niche role, what are the key traits, skills and experiences, or the five Ws, you need to have to ensure you not only land your dream job, but help plug the increasing skills gap? Who can be a Data Scientist? Anyone can train to become a Data Scientist, and the industry is working hard at improving its attraction and retention of a diverse workforce.  Despite traditionally being a very male-dominated sector, research Harnham undertook in August 2020 found that Data & Analytics’ gender divide is slowly but surely closing. 30 per cent of women now make up the industry, a big leap from 18 per cent in 2019.  What skills do you need? Data Scientists are traditionally required to have at least an undergraduate Bachelors’ degree, usually across science, technology, or statistics. However, the majority will continue to go on to get a Master’s (88 per cent) or PHD (46 per cent) level qualifications.   Nonetheless, as more businesses have become attuned to how this level of education can cause significant gaps in the number of diverse candidates, other routes into the industry have been made available, such as apprenticeships and work experience.  Technical skills will also stand you in brilliant stead, from coding languages to machine learning and AI techniques. While not a must-have, a lot of employers, especially post-COVID, will be looking to hire talent that can get started without too much training.  When should I apply for a role? In this new normal, as mentioned, employers are looking for candidates who are ‘work-ready’. So, to position yourself above the rest of the competition, make sure you apply for roles when your skills and knowledge are at the highest standard they can be.    Where could I work as a Data Scientist? The pandemic has completely skewed the normal working routines of most industries, but especially Data Science. Whereas, usually, the most attractive jobs would be based in London, now, with the correct equipment and support in place, those working within the field can work from anywhere, paving the way for a much more flexible workforce and a steep increase in remote working.   Why should I work as a Data Scientist? As a Data Scientist, you’ll never be short for opportunities. As more and more businesses look to implement Data Science into their working model to help make data-driven decisions which not only provide clarity but help reduce costs and positively affect the bottom-line, demand for skilled professionals will only grow.   Of course, job security isn’t the only perk of becoming a Data Scientist: You can also expect to receive a competitive salary.You’ll be part of an exciting and ever-evolving industry, no two days will ever be the same.Your skillset will mean you’re never limited – the business world is your oyster!  Data Science is an extremely varied career path to take, and its role within society has grown vastly, especially over the past year. For anyone looking to enter the industry, plug the skills gap or embark on something completely new, this could be a step in the right direction for you.  If you're interested in working in Data Science, or building out your team, we may be able to help.

Weekly News Digest: 12th - 16th April 2021

This is Harnham’s weekly news digest, the place to come for a quick breakdown of the week’s top news stories from the world of Data & Analytics.      Express Pharma: The five biggest data challenges for life sciences Life Sciences has grown exponentially over the past 12 months. As the COVID-19 pandemic devastated the world, Life Science companies were in a race against time to create a life-changing vaccine and help us all back on the road to recovery.  In 2019, the Life Science market was valued at around $7.5bn. After this year’s influx of activity, the market is estimated to grow by over double in the next decade, reaching $18bn by 2030.  However, despite the positive growth the industry has had, this doesn’t mean Life Sciences will be free of challenges. In fact, with such a spike in the amount of data held by so many Life Science companies as they tried to work on a vaccine, data storage is now one of the main concerns for anyone working within the field.  In this article by Express Pharma, Vimal Venkatram, Country Manager for Snowflake India, highlights the five key data hurdles Life Sciences will continue to have to overcome in the following decade. These include data performance, data exchange and collaboration, data quality, data management and scaling, and regulatory compliance.  Read the full story here.  Harnham: How can organisations tap into the huge pool of neurodiverse data talent? For many companies, the past year has led to an increased focus on diversity and inclusion within businesses – a fantastic step forward. However, when we think of diversity, we usually assume people are talking about gender, ethnicity, sexuality and perhaps even physical disability. One area that is regularly missed from discussion is that of neurodiversity.  An umbrella term coined by sociologist, Judy Singer, neurodiversity can cover a wide range of neurological conditions such as dyslexia, autism, ADHD, ADD and dyspraxia. Our head of internal recruitment, Charlie Waterman, explores why neurodiverse talent shouldn’t be overlooked, and how Data & Analytics specifically can do more to tap into and harness this incredible pool of talent.` Exploring how employers can create a smooth recruitment process, successful onboarding programmes and retention schemes, this article highlights how all of this can be tailored to be accessible for anyone with an invisible disability.

Employers in a significant number of industries across the world have had to uproot from the office to working from home because of the COVID-19 pandemic. For many of these employers, it appears that remote working, or a hybrid model of working, will become the norm post-pandemic.  But what has this sudden shift meant for the likes of Data Protection Officers (DPOs)? Most of these professionals have had to get to grips with managing and handling sensitive data from the comfort of their own living room. According to data from IBM, 70 per cent of DPOs believe that the shift to remote working will increase the likelihood of data breaches. So how can DPOs enjoy the benefits and perks of working from home, without the stress of poorly managed or breached data? In this article by Computer Weekly, steps are outlined on how DPOs can work closely with IT teams to minimise any data risk that could happen. This includes: Not allowing DPOs access to everything if it’s not necessaryDiscouraging local storage of dataRegularly reviewing security standards To read the full article, visit the website here.  Solutions Review: The three best Data Engineering books on our reading lists There’s no better feeling than getting stuck into a really good book.
