Xcede's Data Science team are working with one of the UK's leading economic consultancies who are looking for a Data Scientist to join and be permanently based in their London office. The business currently deals with huge mergers and acquisitions, and need a Data Scientist to use their clients' huge (and often messy) data sets to come up with some valuable insight.

The Data Scientist will work on a variety of projects such as mapping/geographical problems to analyse the legality of a merger, or grouping together text documents. It is a great opportunity for an experienced Data Scientist to take ownership for the data-driven part of the consultancy, working closely with the economists in the UK and the data team in the US.

*PhD (or MSc) in Statistics, Machine Learning, Computer Science or a similar field
*Strong Python skills
*Strong visualisation skills
*Experience working in a consulting environment would be a bonus (although client interaction and travel for this role will be minimal)
*A background or interest in economics
*Ability to clearly communicate findings with various stakeholders
*Experience with any geo-analytics (particularly ArcGIS) would be a huge bonus

If you are interested in this or other Data Scientist opportunities please contact Matthew Jones on or +44(0)203 301 9931. Unfortunately this position is only available to candidates eligible to work in the EU without sponsorship.
