400 analytics jobs unfilled
According to Kevin Magee, CEO of the Analytics Institute, “there’s potential for thousands of jobs in Ireland if we can provide enough of the key ingredient – skills. Ireland needs to become a data friendly location attracting the analytical market leaders to base here. Creating high calibre, well-trained Analytics graduates and a vibrant analytics community is instrumental in achieving this.” “Education has to take place on a variety of fronts,” says Magee. “But the problem is, third level education is medium to long term so the immediate needs won’t be met for at least two years. We need to step in and take action and that is what we are doing by introducing the first in a series of seminars and workshops tackling the immediate refinement of existing professional skills.”
