Data Scientist

The opportunity

Arca Blanca has a mission to disrupt the management consulting industry by delivering better outcomes, faster and with greater precision through the use of data. This year, we were Highly Commended by the Management Consultancies Association (MCA) in the Best New Consultancy category and three of our projects were shortlisted for awards.

You will have the opportunity to help build a growing business that is bringing original solutions to interesting and multi-faceted client issues with some of the UK’s leading companies. We combine data science and transformation and, as such, we challenge the methods that traditional management consultancies adopt. Whilst no two projects are the same, you can be sure that each one will be challenging and complex, testing your resilience, thinking and influencing skills as you engage with the client to take them on the change journey. You will see the impact of your work on clients’ businesses in terms of growth, profit and value. Our flat structure means that you will be integral in shaping the culture and employee experience at Arca Blanca whilst rapidly developing your own skills and progressing your career. At present, our projects are UK based and predominantly in London. We offer an innovative and generous benefits package including a well-being allowance, flexible leave policies, all travel costs and market-leading health cover.
