Bubble Wrap-Up: Top 5 Insights Jobs
By Amy @BubbleJobs
Sunday morning has rolled around once again which means it’s time to dive into the jobs board to see what digital vacancies are up for grabs and which employers are on the look-out for shiny new talent.
Now, as you probably already know, we like to mix things up every week and focus on different areas of the sector. How do we choose? Well it normally all comes down to which jobs come onto the board each week and who’s recruiting. Needless to say, some weeks we have more jobs in some sectors than others – and this week, for some strange reason, we can’t actually move for Insights jobs.
Yep, we’re not quite sure why but this week we’ve had a flood of Analytics and Customer Insights jobs from some pretty big names… so our decision was made for us. Don’t forget; if you like the sound of any of these vacancies, just click on the link in each paragraph to find out more. *I should just warn you, some of these vacancies expire pretty soon so you might not want to hang around for too long before applying! *
