How to build the best Data Analytics Manager CV
Humanity generates an incredible two and a half quintillion bytes of data (that’s 2,500,000,000,000,000,000 bytes) daily and someone has to lead the teams that disseminate information from that data. The senior leadership figures that handle data need to be calm in the face of walls of information; cognisant of the importance of the data; and skilled enough to translate the findings of the data to stakeholders, business leaders, non-data-professionals and the wider public.
A Data Analytics Manager’s CV needs to display the requisite understandings of data analysis, cleaning, visualisation, coding, programming, AI and stack utilisation, whilst clearly communicating leadership credentials.
It also needs to display a mix of raw talent for data analysis balanced against business-critical high quality levels of communication and collaboration, with clear lines of experience and examples of using data to improve business decision making and outcomes.
Our advice for building an effective CV is to focus on technical and industry skill sets, your natural leadership talents, and certifications.
Areas to focus on:
Technical and industry skill sets
By the time you’re applying for senior leadership Data Analyst roles you should have compiled a formidable resume of skills and technical certifications.
Wherever possible, highlight these skills, especially:
- Data visualisation
- Machine Learning
Critical leadership skills:
- High level communications
- Stakeholder management
It’s vital you pivot your resume to one where leadership, management and taking responsibility for yourself and your team’s delivery of data understanding is at the fore.
The Data Analytics role is one where you lead in the collection of vital information – but the value of that data will not be understood unless you can clearly communicate the findings from the data to other leaders, departments and, in the case of public companies or charities, a broad stakeholder and Board chain of command.
You must therefore clearly leverage your leadership qualities on your Data Analytics Manager CV.
Showing a solid, longstanding understanding of computer science, backed up with requisite knowledge of mathematics, statistics and programming, is a great foundation from which to build a CV.
Displaying certifications from L&D programmes such as CompTIA Data+ is another way of proving your data analysis skill set. Other analytics courses and/or boot camps can help your data analytics knowledge, from which you’ll gain certifications.
Further certifications, such as Masters programmes in Business Management and Computer Science, are always great additions to a Data Analytics Manager’s CV.
