North America is seeing an increase in hiring for big data roles in retail banking

North America extended its dominance for big data hiring among retail banking firms in the three months to June.

The number of roles in North America accounted for 50.9% of total big data jobs, up from 46.1% in the same quarter last year.

This was followed by Europe, which saw a 0.5 percentage point year-on-year change in big data roles.

The figures are compiled by GlobalData, which tracks the number of new job postings from key companies in various sectors over time. Using textual analysis, these job postings are then categorized by topic.

GlobalData’s thematic approach to industry activity aims to group key company information by topic to see which companies are best positioned to weather the coming disruptions in their industries.

These key topics, which include big data, are chosen to cover “any issue that keeps a CEO up at night.”

Tracking them through job postings allows us to see which companies are leading the way on specific issues and which are dragging their feet – and more importantly where the market is growing and contracting.
