The Information Lab has a simple mission: to help people make sense of data. We believe that companies which use data well will have better futures than those that don’t and have been helping clients such as PwC, Coca-Cola, Unilever, Virgin Atlantic and UBS do so by specializing in the leading products for data visualization and data integration - Tableau and Alteryx - since 2011.
As a consultant of The Data School, your experience will far and away surpass that of the ‘average’ training contract. Yes, you will be paid $60k per year to learn about data and technology from some of the greatest data experts across the world (including 5Tableau Visionariesand twoAlteryx ACEs). And yes, you’ll undertake this intensive and extensive training over 4 months in our fabulous Data School located just a stone's throw from Wall Street. And yes, you’ll even be given the chance to showcase your new found knowledge and skills with the some of the biggest and most recognized blue chip clients in the US in a series of placements.
But there’s more to our training than that.
We don’t just teach technology for technology’s sake. And we don’t just teach in ‘any old way’. With support from your coaches and the wider team, you will learn broader skills about storing, managing and presenting data as well as personal skills to help boost your own confidence in becoming an exceptional consultant. And all within an environment which can only be described as extraordinarily inclusive and collaborative.
Don’t have any knowledge of Tableau or Alteryx currently? No problem. Our consultants come from different walks of life and many had never heard of Tableau before they stumbled across us; you can meet some of themhere. The one thing they do have in common, however, is that they are all passionate about problem solving, especially problem solving with data and evidence. So if you share the same inquisitive nature and have a passion for getting to the truth by way of data, then The Data School could be the perfect next chapter to your career.
Everyone is welcome at The Information Lab and The Data School, no matter what your background is, whether you studied at university, what you look like, or what subjects you like to analyze in your own time. The more diversity we have analyzing our clients and the rest of the world's data, the more varied stories we will find and the better the improvements that could be made. We look for passion for the subject... show us yours.
We would love to hear from you if you are:
good with numbers
a people person
a problem solver
a confident communicator
