Fulltime Data Science

Job Description

Are you passionate about data modelling and do you want to make a lasting impact? Do you aspire to gain hands-on experience as a data scientist across various sectors? Are you seeking a dynamic environment where you can kick-start your career with extensive learning opportunities, including on-the-job coaching and a diverse training curriculum? If so, consider applying for the Junior Data Scientist position at IG&H!

As a Data Scientist, you will play a crucial role in helping our clients derive valuable and new insights from large and complex datasets. You start doing this by creating deep understanding of the challenges our clients are facing. Together with your team, you’ll then determine how to create most business value for our clients. Afterward, you’ll apply your knowledge and skills on data modelling in a practical setting. Methods we use range from more basic data processing techniques to machine learning and large language models. Finally, you communicate and present results convincingly, to create real and lasting impact. We believe that those who can combine analytical skills with business sense are most successful in creating this impact for our clients.

IG&H is active in three sectors (retail, financial services and healthcare), allowing you to get experience on a variety of projects. On top, you'll be working closely with IG&H consultants outside of the Data & Analytics team too, such that you learn much more than only data related skills. Especially if you start your career at IG&H, this will help you in understanding what you really like doing and want to learn.

Next to excellent employment conditions, working at IG&H will be a great place to kick-start your career. We believe that a caring and fun working environment will help you to dare to step out of your comfort zone and learn. In addition, we offer continuous learning through the IG&H Academy, in which you’ll get training to boost your data science, consulting and people skills. Also, you will be assigned a mentor who will be there for you to provide you with guidance.

Above all, people are at the heart of what we do. This of course comes back in the work we deliver for our clients (why make a data product if the people who need to use it don’t understand or want to use it?). At the same time, a fun working culture is key for who we are. With an inspiring office in Utrecht where we can connect, have abundant parties, team activities and sport events (both organised for the entire IG&H organisation as well as specifically for the Data & Analytics team), IG&H is truly a great place to work. And yes, we are certified!
