I’ve had an excellent experience with Bristow Holland, especially with James Bleese, who helped me secure a new job role quickly, and efficiently. He was constantly keeping me updated, and letting me know what was happening with my application. I couldn’t suggest Bristow Holland more, especially if you choose to go with James!

Frequently asked questions

Still not found the answer you are after? Speak to one of our specialists today!
How do I get into a career in Data Analytics, AI and ML?

The conventual way into data science, machine learning and AI is via university studying subjects such as mathematics, sciences, computing, and physics. Here, you will learn various data-related subjects and harness information for insights utilising various techniques and software and programming languages.

Alternatively, it is not uncommon to secure an internal move with your current employer and supplement yourself with data science, data analytical or computing accreditations with the industry knowledge you will already have to apply those analytical techniques. Breaking into this field is the hard part. If you love what you do and become an expert, the world is your oyster.

What’s the career path for a Data Analytics, AI and ML specialist?

Like most career paths, the level at which you work is predominately determined by the level of expertise you have and in this area. Starting out as an analyst, engineer, or scientist is common. Then typically, between 1 to 3 years, someone would be promoted or move into a senior role, and then 1 to 3 years to a principal or lead. Some do, at this point, intentionally or unintentionally migrate into a mentioning or leadership position unless it doesn’t meet their goals or preferences. The subject matter has a strong part to place in terms of progression and path and some sector’s progression will be quick than others i.e. financial services v life sciences for the former being arguably quicker to progress in. But being a “manager”, AD, Director, VP are all possibilities depending on you and the organisation you work for.

Are certifications or qualifications useful for a job in Data Analytics, AI and ML?

A very common question and as a rule of thumb, the answer is “yes”. To add to this, it does depend on the stage of career and situation as it, broadly speaking it is an 80% yes! If you have no commercial experience, then 100% qualifications and certifications are imperative with the complexity of modern-day Data Science and more general Data Analytics.

If you want to change careers or sidestep again, the answer is yes, depending on the level of transferable skills. But accreditations alone could be a wiser choice. When it comes to new software or programming technics, gaining a strong foundation of what is new is always prudent.

What is the future for Data Analytics, AI and ML?

The beautiful thing about the technology and life sciences sectors, in particular, is that with them, they are always those people, academics, and companies challenging the status quo and chasing innovation. We would not be where we are today after 50 years in data analytics if more scientific & technological intellects didn’t push the boundaries for greater knowledge and insight.

Data & analytics, ML and AI are breaking ground in numerous sectors now and in the more commonly related sectors in new and various ways and will continue to do so for many days, weeks, and years to come! So much so that almost anything can happen!

Depending on how much you know about this area, machine learning and AI will be part of our everyday lives in a huge way. It will be like imagining the world without modern-day smartphones. The technology we interact with daily will have ML and AI sitting behind an interface.

What type of companies employ Data Analytics, AI and ML specialists?

The most common “industries” with a higher degree of data engineering, data science, data analytics specialists would be life sciences (pharma / biotech), financial services, tech firms, consultancies, information agencies, & utilities. And that will continue to be the norm for the foreseeable.

Machine learning and AI this is evolving at a rapid rate with various technology innovations & advancements i.e. chatbots, autonomous vehicles, and diagnostics devices. Big Tech is and will continue to dominate recruitment growth with their development of new tools in such areas as logistics, e-commerce, aviation, manufacturing etc. We are in a similar era to the “app” where everyone rushed to develop mobile phone applications that worked better than the web-based platforms.
