Data Scientist / Data Analyst / Data Engineer – Consultant

  • London
  • Full time
  • £27,500 – £40,000 (dependent upon skills and experience)
  • Closing date:
  • Are you autistic and looking for a career in data science? Do you have good attention to detail, pattern recognition and error-detection or have an analytical mindset? Would you like to work in an environment where neurodiversity is celebrated and autistic staff are supported to thrive? 

    Our business is growing, we are expanding our London practice and are looking for data scientists, data analysts and data engineers to join our team of talented autistic consultants. We recruit on a rolling basis with flexible start dates. 

    What the role involves 

    You will join our consulting team which comprises Associates, Consultants and Senior Consultants.  You will be a permanent employee of auticon, but most of your day-to-day work will be with one of our clients. You will add skills and expertise to the client’s team or project. Most of our clients are large multinational organisations who require expertise in areas such as data analysis, data visualisaton, data engineering, machine learning or AI.  You get the chance to work on interesting assignments with our clients, whilst still having all of the support of being an auticon employee.  When you are between projects, your employment with us continues and we support you to further develop your skills. 

    What we are looking for 

    Essential Criteria – please apply if you have: 

    • an autism diagnosis, are in the process of obtaining a diagnosis, or are considering a diagnosis
    • The ability to commute to our London office (SE1 3JW) on a regular basis (around 2-3 times per week).  As a responsible employer we are aware of the sensory and emotional impact of longer commutes. We consider a reasonable commute to be no longer than 1.5 hours each way. 
    • strong Python or R skills, including the use of relevant libraries (NumPy, Pandas etc)
    • experience in 2 out of the following 3:
      – use of data analysis tools
      – processing large data sets accurately
      – use of relational databases 

    Desirable Criteria (Please note that you do not need to meet all, or any, of the criteria listed below in order to apply) 

    • Previously used Tableau, Power BI, Qlikview, Spotfire, etc. 
    • Certification in one of the major cloud services (AWS, Azure, Google Cloud Platform etc.) 
    • Some knowledge/experience of machine learning (eg TensorFlow) 
    • Cyber security skills, experience or certification (eg CompTIA)  
    • some relevant work experience or equivalent practical application of skills through a PhD for example 
    • Previous experience of, or willingness to undergo, national security vetting so that you can work on projects with our public sector clients which require Security Check (SC) clearance.  This requires you to have been a UK resident for 5 years. 

    Due to the differing needs of our clients, we cannot guarantee an entirely remote role, and commuting into central London around 2-3 times per week may be required. However, as we appreciate the impact that commuting and office environments can have on our consultants, we ensure reasonable adjustments are implemented and encourage flexible or hybrid working arrangements where possible. 

    Successful candidates must have ongoing permission to work in the UK.  We particularly encourage applications from PhD students who can access the 3-year graduate visa route.
