UniDays were in the process of modernising their data platforms. They were working with a huge amount of data that offered up several opportunities for them. They wanted to make the most of this data, but without the right team in place to do it, the VP of Data didn’t know where to start!

The solution

Initially, Data Idols was recommended to the VP of Data to discuss team structures, role profiles, salaries etc. to assist them in hiring the right people for their team. We used our vast amount of market knowledge to offer advice and support on how to progress the project over key milestones.

As the projects and partnership progressed, the VP of Data recognised the need for an Interim Architect to work with her and ensure the project progressed. Data Idols were engaged for this specific opportunity, and the perfect person was hired!


Data Idols are a pleasure to work with; professional, knowledgeable, great fun. What I have valued most is they work with high levels of honesty and integrity. It is clear they put the interests of their candidates and clients at the core of what they do.

The results

The Interim Architect was hired rapidly and hit the ground running to work hard with the VP of Data to create an initial proposal and recommendations for the team. Data Idols were further engaged to hire teams to deliver the permanent and contract work across Engineering, Insights and Analytics.

To date, Data Idols has made 8 placements across permanent and contract teams, including niche roles with very specific technologies. We worked very closely with the Architect’s proposal, sending outstanding CVs within the first 48 hours of receiving the role. We worked quickly in line with UNiDAYS’ time frames and have been filling contract roles within an average of 11 days and permanent roles within 20 days.

Data Idols continue to support UNiDAYs with their hiring, along with market insights and advice as their teams grow. The team have also been able to broaden their network and opportunities to learn from peers through our events.
