Hi Alex, This is Jania I'm a manager in the data analytics team in forensic technology. May I ask if you will be coming through the graduate scheme or as an experienced hire?
Hi Jania, Thank you for the reply. I will be applying for the graduate scheme.
Great! We have a process that allows our new graduates to experience all three areas in forensic technology before choosing where to be based. This is as follows:
When the graduates join, they will be divided to two groups: half of them will start in data analytics for a year and the other half will join the e-discovery team for a year which includes data collection and processing and Review management.
After one year they rotate. i.e. those in DA will join ED and those in ED will join DA. This means within the first two years of joining you would have gained experience in all three areas. Once both rotations are over, you would hopefully get an idea and preference as to which team you would like to join. You will then talk to your team managers and get confirmation from them as well that where your skills set best fits and you will choose a team to join permanently.
Does that answer your question?
Thank you for the information. It's really helpful.
You are most welcome. glad I could be helpful.
Actually I have another question following this one. I have been working as a data analyst in a healthcare consultancy for one year, and have recently received a job offer from another firms to analyse big data to provide insights.
I am wondering whether I am in a better position to apply for the graduate scheme or an experienced hire if I were to accept the job offer to start next month?
Hey Alex, if you already have got work experience particularly doing some data analytics and feel confident with performing data related tasks e.g. loading data into a database, writing SQL statements to perform data analytics then I would suggest you apply as an experienced hire. Depending on your level of experience, maybe applying as a senior associate might be best, too
Thank you very much. Does it require any understanding of the finance service industry when applying as an experienced hire?
You would be expected to have an idea of current issues in the finance industry and how we help our clients resolve these but you wouldn't be expected to be an expert in it. At least not at a senior associate level
Thank you. I tried to search for an experienced hire in Forensic Analytics and it does not say how many years of work experience is required. As I mentioned, I have one year experience as a data analyst to write SQL statements to perform data analysis. is it sufficient?
As I mentioned earlier we have junior roles within the team such as senior associate that you could apply for. At the end of the day it all depends on your technical skills and the ability to do the job expected of your role.
Thank you very much! Are these junior roles (senior associate) still available? I could not find them on the career page.
