North America is seeing a hiring boom in power industry data analytics roles

By Data Journalism Team

North America extended its dominance for data analytics hiring among power industry companies in the three months ending November.

The number of roles in North America made up 61.8 per cent of total data analytics jobs – up from 58% in the same quarter last year.

That was followed by Asia-Pacific, which saw a 1.8 year-on-year percentage point change in data analytics 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 data analytics, 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 data analytics roles in the power industry?

The fastest growing country was the US, which saw 52.1% of all data analytics job adverts in the three months ending November last year, increasing to 56.8% in the three months ending November this year.

That was followed by India (up 2.9 percentage points), Germany (up 0.1), and Italy (up -0.1).

The top country for data analytics roles in the power industry is the US which saw 56.8% of all roles in the three months ending November.

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

Some 2.9% of all power industry data analytics roles were advertised in Pune (India) in the three months ending November – more than any other city.

That was followed by Miami (United States) with 2.9%, Chennai (India) with 2.1%, and San Francisco (US) with 1.8%.
