Are you interested in working on a broad variety of data analytics projects while working with people who are driving innovation in the use of data & insights? 

Alternatives is working with a global brand with operations across the world to appoint a true 'data junky' for the role of Data Analyst. You’ll work in Dublin on local and global projects working inside a business filled with agile thinkers who want to make a ‘ding’ in the universe and interrupt the status quo.


Our client is a global brand servicing a variety of international projects in the data and digital space utilising the explosive powers of data to solve complex problems. Fuelled with creative insights our client seeks to build a team of excellent communicators; people who bring data to life. You’ll join at the start of an exciting journey and be one of the first analysts to be exposed to game-changing uses of analytics in the creative, digital and global marketing & insights space.  


You’ll report into a project manager and digital commercial director and as such offer significant advisory on the customer intelligence area.

You’ll have a natural flair for communicating upwards and downward and be comfortable in presenting and influencing others across a variety of IT and Business functions. 

You're intrigued by complex problems and while analytical you are able to innovate - cultivating a culture of ideation with the maximisation of commercial objectives firmly in mind. 

Finally - you are the type of person who can work on your initiative and can see the bigger picture. 

Key desirables:

  • Strong work ethic
  • A learner & doer with a strong appetite for change
  • A background in analytics, computer science or statistics
  • You’ll have the capacity to communicate the value of data analytics & the power of insights in a client level capacity (not a business development acumen – a natural interest that will enthuse the key people on client side that you will work with)
  • An interest in advanced analytics technologies such as predictive analytics & machine learning
  • The ability to switch from task to task & project to project
  • You’ll enjoy working with others and seek to solve problems and go that extra mile.
  • Comfortable working in beautiful offices alongside people who are fast paced and driven
  • Open to the potential of growing with the business and learning from Data Scientists

Technical skills:

  • You understand the role of a data analyst through and through
  • Strong appreciation of data modelling & ideally some exposure to database architecture  
  • Naturally you’ll be competent in data mining and data segmenting techniques
  • Popular reporting packages will not phase you e.g. databases, programming, platforms and statistical packages, including: SQL (essential), Python, JavaScript, Tableau, Stata,R, SPSS, SAS (ideal but not essential)
  • Strong analytical skills with the ability to collect, organise, analyse, and disseminate significant amounts of information with attention to detail and accuracy
  • Knowledge of social media analytics or web behaviour research tools would be a ‘nice to have’
  • You’ll have exposure to and a passion for visualisation (Tableau etc.)


  • Third level qualification is preferred with evidence of ongoing learning and personal development
