Europe is seeing a hiring boom in power industry big data roles

Europe was the fastest growing region for big data hiring among power industry companies in the three months ending September.

By Michael Goodier

Europe was the fastest growing region for big data hiring among power industry companies in the three months ending September.

The number of roles in Europe made up 13.3% of total big data jobs – up from 11% in the same quarter last year.

That was followed by North America, which saw a minus two year-on-year percentage point change in big data roles.

The figures are compiled by GlobalData, who track the number of new job postings from key companies in various sectors over time. Using textual analysis, these job advertisements are then classified thematically.

GlobalData's thematic approach to sector activity seeks to group key company information by topic to see which companies are best placed to weather the disruptions coming to their industries.

These key themes, which include big data, are chosen to cover "any issue that keeps a CEO awake at night".

By tracking them across job advertisements it allows us to see which companies are leading the way on specific issues and which are dragging their heels - and importantly where the market is expanding and contracting.

Which countries are seeing the most growth for big data roles in the power industry?

The fastest growing country was the United Kingdom, which saw two per cent of all big data job adverts in the three months ending June last year, increasing to 3.8% in the three months ending September this year.

That was followed by Italy (up one percentage points), Canada (up 0.2), and Finland (up 0.2).

The top country for big data roles in the power industry is the United States which saw 47.6% of all roles in the three months ending September.

Which cities are the biggest hubs for big data workers in the power industry?

Some 2.5% of all power industry big data roles were advertised in Pune (India) in the three months ending September - more than any other city.

That was followed by Chennai (India) with 2.5%, Atlanta (United States) with 1.7%, and Lugoj (Romania) with 1.6%.
