Moving away from a traditional Microsoft (SQL and BI) Tech stack, Ratesetter were going through a period of modernising their data and tech platforms. Translating this new project into hiring was somewhat difficult, especially when different hiring managers and areas of data were involved in the process.

The solution

Data Idols worked with the CTO and Head of Talent to really understand the project and what they needed. We advised on different stages of the project, who to hire and used our expertise of the market to consult on key hiring stages.


Data Idols are extremely knowledgeable about the data space and are well networked in this area. They shared candidate information within 24 hours and found us a perfect match!

The results

Found a perfect match

Data Idols supported Ratesetter quickly, delivering successful CVs within 24 hours and helping to deliver key and niche hires for their new modernisation project. Their first hire was a contract Architect who assisted in the designing of new systems and advised on hiring the wider team to deliver Ratesetter’s new project. They also ended up becoming their new Head of Data!

Reduced their time to hire

Data Idols also ensured an internal education – working with the Recruitment teams to help support their hiring managers in the process across areas such as skills requirements and interview processes. Ultimately, reducing their time to hire down to 2 weeks. Ratesetter and Data Idols partnership has continued to develop, and we are continuing to support the growth of the wider team using our market knowledge, engaged network and data and Recruitment expertise.

Made the client very happy

“Data Idols were great at helping me educate our internal hiring managers on different facets of data and the skills needed. They understood what was available on the market and helped us to effectively break down the role into key stages.

Overall, I have been very impressed with the speed of hiring, their network and understanding of this space and wouldn’t hesitate to work with Data Idols again.”
