Democratising Scotland's Data Talent


If businesses are to get the data talent they deserve – from traditional sources to stones still unturned – and Edinburgh really is to become the data capital of Europe, who will align every initiative and tell people from all walks of life that a dream job in data can be theirs?

Democratising Scotland’s Data Talent is a whitepaper that aspires to spark debate in the UK's data and marketing industry. Part of DMA Scotland’s Value of Data campaign, this paper calls on a range of experts to examine the potential data talent pool throughout the pandemic, providing insights on:

  • Ways to find and engage the right people – even those who haven’t considered a career in data
  • How organisations can recruit and train a more diverse workforce, strengthening their team’s data skills and customer relationships
  • The Talent Hub’s programme from DMA Scotland, which sparks conversations about data skills among employers, academic experts, and recruiters
  • New challenges of data skills, including what can be done to make data roles relevant, engaging, and inclusive
  • Three key talent pools employers should tap into to create a more diverse workforce
