We are looking for a Data Scientist to join our Marketing Data and Insights team.

This is a new permanent role and a chance to join a growing team looking to transform BSI into an insights-driven organisation where all decisions are underpinned with robust data analysis.

We are looking for an individual who is passionate about unlocking value from data.

The position provides a unique chance to build and implement advanced analytical solutions from scratch. This will provide the global BSI marketing teams with insights and tools that have not been available historically, allowing a step chance in how the wider team can operate.

The successful jobholder will be reporting to the Data Science Manager and will be working from our West London office on a 2/3 day per week.

About the company 

BSI is the UK’s National Standards Body, but we are much more than that. We are an international organisation that tackles the problems businesses have by leading the development and embedding of best practice. We help companies access new markets, accelerate innovation, become more resilient and sustainable, and build trusted customer relationships.

Standards protect and create trust, but they are only one aspect of our work. Ensuring conformity with standards and regulatory frameworks accelerates our clients’ ability to improve and grow. Our consulting expertise and insights create a rich environment for innovation. Our work across these interconnected areas unlocks value for clients that is not always apparent when we start.

Sustainability is becoming the galvanising force in the world, and the world of business. Using our unique position to help organisations become more sustainable and resilient is at the heart of our strategy, alongside the pressing need our clients must create trust in a digital world. Innovation, acceleration, and assurance are how we help our clients prosper and benefit society.

Our profits are reinvested in the work we do and the difference we make. Our unique history, presence, and ways of working have earned us a reputation as a trusted catalyst of change: in business, society and the world.

This is an exciting time to join the business as it starts to implement its new strategy. It will be a chance to contribute to new ways of working and drive significant improvements through the use of data.
