A new & interesting Principal Data Scientist Contract, probably one of the best Contracts I've seen all year, has just arisen with one of our Edinburgh based Financial Services Clients.

An initial 6-9 month Contract, the role will be joining an existing (and growing!) team and will be remotely based for the foreseeable, paying up to £650 per day via an Umbrella Company.

Taking a pragmatic approach to the recruitment of this Contract, our Hiring Contact is keen to find an experienced & commercially driven Data Scientist with the ability to help drive ROI across a range of varied business projects.

Key knowledge & experience required will include;

* Extensive knowledge & experience as a Principal Data Scientist / Lead Data Scientist / Data Scientist with previous experience Coaching / Mentoring / Leading small Data Science teams
* A strong analytics background & experience with a commercially driven mind-set & approach
* Excellent people, communication & Stakeholder Management skills will be absolutely key - the ability to work with all areas of the business & take an ambassadorial role for Data Science.
* Strong & proven experience with Python & PowerBI
* A background in Financial Services (or within another large Corporate Client) would likely help but is not essential in anyway

If the above details appeal to you, PLEASE APPLY NOW with an up-to-date CV. This is a great Contract, working on some interesting projects and alongside a great hiring contact!

Our Client values diversity and welcomes applications from everyone.
