North America extended its dominance for data analytics hiring among drinks industry companies in the three months ending May, analysis of hiring patterns suggests.

The number of roles on offer in North America made up 59.9% of total data analytics jobs – up from 40.6% 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 Drinks’ 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.
