Data and Analytics

Using innovations in data analytics and human insights, we help our clients collect it, analyse it and use it to understand potential futures, improve business performance and transform the way they work.

Data and Analytics

Many of our new and existing clients buy into the value of data and analytics, but struggle with how to build their in-house sustained capability. Others build technical data and analytics capability then struggle to get the wider organisation to adopt and achieve long term value from analytics. Even though they are accumulating data at an exponential rate, they’re not fully harnessing the value in this new rich asset.

Using our business knowledge, experience and data and analytics expertise, we help our clients answer questions such as:

  • How do we embed data and analytics into our business to facilitate our organisation’s growth plans?
  • What people and skills do we need?
  • Where should the Data and Analytics function sit and how should it interface with the rest of the organisation?
  • How can we monetise the organisation’s data to drive revenue?
  • What technologies and methodologies should we use?

We are helping our clients with everything from defining a data and analytics strategy through to designing structures, workflows, roles, people requirements and supporting recruitment and resource placement.

 

We're looking for data and analytics specialists to join our team working in many areas of our business - from Data Assurance, Consulting and Tax to Forensics and People Services. We'd like to grow our team with specialists from all sorts of backgrounds across a range of grades. What's key is that you have the right skills and the passion to support our clients in this fast-moving area.
