Vacancy for a People Data Scientist 

Do you want to put your data skills to meaningful use and work for major brands without entering the dynamics of large corporates? Then this is the job for you!  

Your impact as a People Data Scientist?

Suppose you can work magic with data. And suppose you can choose between a role that’s all about getting more clicks or one that allows you to make a positive contribution to society. Which one would you choose?  

People Analytics is about people issues in an organizational context. Think of questions like:   

  • Which absenteeism is at risk of becoming prolonged absenteeism?   
  • Which factors need to be influenced in order to achieve an inclusive workplace?  
  • How can teams be optimally configured to achieve the goal of employee satisfaction?   
  • How can employee journeys, such as onboarding, be improved? 
  • How can employees be prevented from leaving the organisation early? 

As a People Data Scientist you generate data-driven insights that organisations can use to improve their Employee Experience. In this way, your work has social relevance, and you help to create value for organisations. 

People Data Scientist

As a People Data Scientist, your focus is on HR and organisational issues. These are issues related to the entire employee lifecycle, i.e. from attracting people to developing them, rewarding them and finally letting them go. They may also involve workforce planning (i.e. how many people with which competencies are needed at any given time so as to achieve the organisation’s plans?) and organisational structure (e.g. how many layers are optimal and what is the best span of control for managers?). 

To answer these questions, a People Data Scientist naturally uses typical HR datasets, such as data from the personnel and payroll administration package, the talent management suite, or employee surveys. But your job doesn’t stop there! These typical HR datasets are supplemented with data from financial, operational, marketing and sales systems, so as to ultimately generate the best insights.  

Once the data has been collected, data-science techniques are used to develop explanatory, predictive and prescriptive models. With these models, the employee experience is improved and organisational performance is optimised, truly turning data into profit! 

As a People Data Scientist you will play a key role in People Analytics projects. Depending on your work experience, you will assume more of a leading role in your team and in client contact. As a senior, you decide on the methodological and technological approach. As a junior, you will be working under the inspirational guidance of a senior. As a medior, you will be anywhere in between.
