How we help

We add value beyond recruitment

Recruitment is at the core of Data Idols: finding the right people for the right job at the right time, but our success (and yours) is driven by a deeper understanding of your objectives and culture. From consulting through to training and events, we offer value beyond recruitment, helping you to plan, shape and guide your data teams.


Contingency recruitment

We operate on a contingency recruitment model, working closely with you to understand your business, your culture and the specifics of the job role in order to make the perfect hire.


Support & consultancy

To build a successful data team, you need to make sure you are hiring the best people out there and creating an environment that makes them want to stay. We’ll share our knowledge, opinion and guidance honed after more than a decade working with data-driven brands.


Events & training

With access to a data community of over 30,000, we can help you build the platform that gets your tech brand noticed by the very best data talent, whether that’s via our Data Science Festival or an event that’s all yours.

Why choose us

There are a few key reasons


We lead the data community

Five years ago, we founded the Data Science Festival, a global data community that has grown to over 30,000 members. By fostering the sharing of knowledge, inspiration and ideas through free events, we’ve built an awesome network of data talent and data-driven brands that you can plug straight into.


We’re specialists not generalists

Data is our niche and our pool of candidates and clients is very specific. That means instead of sending ten mediocre applicants, we send one fantastic one who meets your requirements and is the right cultural fit. Likewise, we won’t be spamming our candidates with roles they’re not interested in with salaries below their pay grade.


We’re delivery focused

For more than a decade, we’ve been delivering speed and quality for clients and candidates alike. For our ambitious data-driven clients, we deliver the right people at the right time. For Data Analysts, Data Engineers or Data Scientists, we deliver the right role in the right company with the right compensation package.


We offer value beyond recruitment

Our core business is to find the right people for the right job but our success is driven by a deeper understanding of your goals. From consultancy through to training and events, we offer value beyond recruitment, helping to shape, plan and guide your data team(s).


We believe in quality, trust and honesty

There’s quite a negative perception of recruiters in our industry and we get it -we’ve experienced it – and we’re on a mission to change it. It’s why we’re here. We’re really proud of what we’ve built here at Data Idols. Our entire approach is centered around quality, trust and honesty.


We’re a nice bunch

Quite pleased to say that we’re lovely to work with. At least that is what we’ve been told. However, being nice doesn’t mean that we’re not the best at what we do. We’re passionate and knowledgeable and we’ve got the expertise you need to drive value, success and growth. We will use our in-depth sector knowledge and expansive data community to provide an efficient, targeted specialist data recruitment experience.
