North America sees hiring boom in food industry data analytics roles

Some parts of the world are investing more heavily in data analytics roles than others.

By Data Journalism Team

North America extended its dominance for data analytics hiring among food industry companies in the three months ending May.

The number of roles in North America made up 53.7% of total data analytics jobs – up from 40.3% in the same quarter last year.

GlobalData tracks the number of new job postings from key companies in various sectors over time. Using textual analysis, these job advertisements are then classified thematically. The data and analytics group, Just Foods parent company, seeks to group key company information by topic to see which companies are best placed to weather the disruptions coming to their industries.

By tracking the themes across job advertisements, GlobalData says it can see which companies are leading the way on specific issues and which are dragging their heels – and importantly where the market is expanding and contracting.

The fastest growing country was the US, which saw 37.5% of all data analytics job adverts in the three months ending May 2021 but 50.8% in the three months ending May this year. That was followed by India (up 1.2 percentage points).
