How to hire Data Science and Analytics Leaders
1. Create a data-centric vision
Data Scientists want to make a difference. When you want to invite great minds to join your company, communicating a vision that puts data at the heart of matters is crucial. Your vision will reflect on whether the person can expect to grow in their role. Showing how your organization uses data and insights to achieve great things can help you attract top talent.
2. Be clear about the job role requirements
Technologies and data systems are becoming more complex. Teams are getting bigger as roles become increasingly specialist. A proliferation of skills means jobs need to be clearly defined. With Heron Talent recruitment services, a recruitment consultant will help you attract exceptional candidates with a well-written job description that clearly states the role’s specialist requirements and unique selling points.
3. Keep up with the competition
The U.S Bureau of Labor Statistics believes data science will see more growth than most other fields between now and 2029. With strong competition for top talent, an attractive offer can entice a suitable candidate to take the risk of switching employer. Competitive salaries, excellent benefits and a solid reputation for innovation can help you quickly secure an excellent candidate.
What do Data Science and Analytics Leaders look for in a new role?
Experienced candidates have high expectations. Data Science and Analytics Leaders are likely to consider these things when looking at your job opportunity:
How is your company positioned in the competitive landscape?
Does your company’s vision align with my ambition?
How important is the role within the company?
How competent is the data team?
Does the role offer growth potential?
What’s the company culture like?
Will I have the mandate needed to lead? Does this support come from the board, the CEO, or other lead?
