DS24 - 4th October 2021
The Data School /
Contract - 2.5 years
Application Deadline: 13th August 2021
The Information Lab has a simple mission: to help people make sense of data. We believe that companies which use data well will have better futures than those that don’t and have been helping clients such as PwC, Coca-Cola, Unilever, Virgin Atlantic and UBS do so by specialising in the leading products for data visualisation and data integration - Tableau and Alteryx - since 2011.
As a consultant of The Data School, your experience will far and away surpass that of the ‘average’ training contract. Yes, you will you be paid £30k per year to learn about data and technology from some of the greatest data experts across the world (including 5 Tableau Zen Masters and a two Alteryx ACEs). And yes, you’ll undertake this intensive and extensive training over 4 months in our fabulous Data School located just a stone's throw from St. Paul's Cathedral. And yes, you’ll even be given the chance to showcase your new found knowledge and skills with the some of the biggest and most recognised blue chip clients in the UK in a series of placements.
But there’s more to our training than that.
We don’t just teach technology for technology’s sake. And we don’t just teach in ‘any old way’. With support from your coaches and the wider team, you will learn broader skills about storing, managing and presenting data as well as personal skills to help boost your own confidence in becoming an exceptional consultant. And all within an environment which can only be described as extraordinarily inclusive and collaborative.
Don’t have any knowledge of Tableau or Alteryx currently? No problem. Our consultants come from different walks of life and many had never heard of Tableau before they stumbled across us; you can meet some of them here. The one thing they do have in common, however, is that they are all passionate about problem solving, especially problem solving with data and evidence. So if you share the same inquisitive nature and have a passion for getting to the truth by way of data, then The Data School could be the perfect next chapter to your career.
Everyone is welcome at The Information Lab and The Data School, no matter what your background is, whether you studied at university, what you look like, or what subjects you like to analyse in your own time. The more diversity we have analysing our clients and the rest of the world's data, the more varied stories we will find and the better the improvements that could be made. We look for passion for the subject... show us yours.
We would love to hear from you if you are:
- data driven
- a people person
- a problem solver
- a confident communicator
- £30k first year rising to £35k per year for the remaining time
- Mobile phone
- 25 days holiday
- Annual Christmas party (in May!) - previous locations Barcelona, Slovenia, Ibiza, Amsterdam and Hamburg
We recruit 8 people every 2 months, with the option for applicants to specify a particular intake. Successful applicants will be offered a 2.5 year fixed term contract within The Information Lab with a starting salary of £30,000 per year, rising over the training period. We can unfortunately only accept applicants for this role who have a right to work in the UK.
We recruit from all degree disciplines and academic backgrounds and welcome applications from career changers. We are proud of our diverse workplace and do not discriminate on gender, ethnicity, race, or sexual orientation.
