This is an exciting opportunity for an ambitious and committed graduate with the ability and confidence to manage a Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) project with DWF LLP.

The University of Manchester and DWF LLP are looking to recruit a data scientist to undertake this 30-month project which has an overall aim of developing and embedding a Data Empowered Business Model which will allow DWF to manage data as a corporate asset securing and sustaining competitive advantage supported by improved workforce intelligence and engagement.

The position will provide the successful candidate with a unique opportunity to take the lead on a strategic project translating the processes designed by University of Manchester experts and integrating the new model into existing DWF’s practices. The Associate will, therefore, be faced with the challenge of understanding both the theory and the practical application of data science to support the development of an intelligent business system and translating their technical know-how into a form that can be easily understood and used by users within DWF.

Candidates will require a Minimum 2:1 in a related degree with a Postgraduate degree in a relevant area such as data science, computer science, e-business or software engineering or equivalent experience.  A PhD in a related subject area is considered necessary to ensure the graduate has sufficient breadth and depth of knowledge to match the complexity and ambition of the project.  However, candidates who can demonstrate that commercial experience with a Master’s degree which substitutes for a PhD may be considered.

This post is funded through a Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) award, a UK Government scheme intended to promote sustained and mutually beneficial relationships between universities and industry.

Based at DWF’s Head Office in Manchester City Centre, the successful candidate will work directly with supervisors from both the University and DWF and will use the facilities and resources of both organisations.

As an equal opportunities employer, we welcome applicants from all sections of the community regardless of gender, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation and transgender status.  All appointments are made on merit.
