Scottish Enterprise (SE) is Scotland’s national economic development agency. We help Scottish businesses to grow nationally and internationally, to become more efficient and innovative, and to access the services they need to grow and help the Scottish economy.

As part of our ambitious data, digital and technology transformation programme, we’re developing our expertise in data analysis and sciences. Our new teams of data engineers and data scientists will help us improve our ability to make fact-based decisions at all levels.

The difference you'll make

In this challenging role you’ll use your skills in sourcing, transforming, joining, mining, modelling and managing unstructured, semi-structured and structured data sets to help us enable fact-based actionable insights. You’ll set the direction for the ways that data science can support strategic and operational decision-making at SE.

You’ll manage a small team of data scientists to prepare and transform data before applying data analysis, modelling and visualisation techniques. You’ll also work with colleagues in partner organisations, and with private sector companies, to help create more ‘joined-up’ services and insights that will benefit Scotland’s economy.

As a key member of the Data and Analytics leadership team, you’ll deputise for your line manager and colleagues where appropriate.

The qualities you'll bring

You’ve probably spent your career across science, technology, engineering or mathematical disciplines, before developing your deep expertise in data sciences. You’ll have a strong background across Microsoft’s data and analytics Azure platforms. This will be complemented by your knowledge of R, SQL and Python, and familiarity with Scala, Java or C++.

Your well-developed coaching and mentoring skills go hand-in-hand with your ability to communicate and lead effectively.
