As a consultant, and someone who uses agencies to supply professional IT contractors, I can recommend Graham as the man for the job. He knows the business, and his subject (the BI arena) well. Unlike many agents, he will not bombard you with irrelevant CVs or job specifications. Unlike the majority of agents who pick CVs from their databases using buzz words, Graham actually reads CVs and can match them perfectly to job specifications. This saves me time when I am hiring, and also when I am looking for work myself.

Data and Analytics

The last decade has seen an immense shift in the way companies gather, store and use their data.

This has created a plethora of technology choices and a candidate market that can be categorised as traditional, new, and those who have experience of spanning both.

TAG has over 11,000 candidates within the Data and Analytics market and has placed staff from startups through to global corporates. Many of these placements have been made where existing organisations were not able to reach the right people or could not understand the intricacies of the undertaking. 

WE love to geek out with managers to understand what they are looking to achieve and gladly accept the challenge of finding that skill/ person who will make a difference (e.g. having had experience of slowly changing type 2 dimension models). Having successfully completed hundreds of hires in Data and Analytics Tag is a proven partner to help look after the core of your business
