Big data, data mining, data science…

Recently we have seen a number of job roles being advertised through us that have  big data, informatics, data mining or data science in the job title.

As these jobs are relatively new, finding out more information about them can be tricky, as careers websites like Prospects don’t yet have job profiles for them.

We are currently writing a leaflet on how to find and apply for jobs and work experience in this area and found an excellent blog post which breaks down what working in data involves:
