Are you passionate about data modelling and do you want to make a lasting impact? Do you aspire to gain hands-on experience as a data scientist across various sectors? Are you seeking a dynamic environment where you can kick-start your career with extensive learning opportunities, including on-the-job coaching and a diverse training curriculum? If so, consider applying for the Junior Data Scientist position at IG&H!

As a Data Scientist, you will play a crucial role in helping our clients derive valuable and new insights from large and complex datasets. You start doing this by creating deep understanding of the challenges our clients are facing. Together with your team, you’ll then determine how to create most business value for our clients. Afterward, you’ll apply your knowledge and skills on data modelling in a practical setting. Methods we use range from more basic data processing techniques to machine learning and large language models. Finally, you communicate and present results convincingly, to create real and lasting impact. We believe that those who can combine analytical skills with business sense are most successful in creating this impact for our clients.

IG&H is active in three sectors (retail, financial services and health), allowing you to get experience on a variety of projects. On top, you'll be working closely with IG&H consultants outside of the Data & Analytics team too, such that you learn much more than only data related skills. Especially if you start your career at IG&H, this will help you in understanding what you really like doing and want to learn.

Next to excellent employment conditions, working at IG&H will be a great place to kick-start your career. We believe that a caring and fun working environment will help you to dare to step out of your comfort zone and learn. In addition, we offer continuous learning through the IG&H Academy, in which you’ll get training to boost your data science, consulting and people skills. Also, you will be assigned a mentor, who will be there for you to provide you with guidance.

Above all, people are at the heart of what we do. This of course comes back in the work we deliver for our clients (why make a data product if the people who need to use it don’t understand or want to use it?). At the same time, a fun working culture is key for who we are. With an inspiring office in Utrecht where we can connect, have abundant parties, team activities and sport events (both organised for the entire IG&H organisation as well as specifically for the Data & Analytics team), IG&H is truly a Great Place To Work. And yes, we are certified!


“In addition to on-the-job learning, you learn everything you need to know about consultancy in the IG&H Academy. The program consists of various internal and external training courses and has been specifically developed for trainees. Besides training sessions, the Academy often organizes trips and dinners. Through these, you quickly develop good relationships with co-workers at IG&H. I see many of them outside of work on a regular basis” Jasmijn Haverhals (Consultant Healthcare)

“The most beautiful thing about consulting is the diversity within the projects. IG&H offers next to different clients, a variety in the types of assignments. One assignment could be very strategic, in which you outline the direction of a company. Whereas another assignment could be focused on implementation, in which you are working together with the client to deliver concrete results.” Peter Hardy (Manager)


What we ask:

  • MSc degree in Econometrics, Data Science, Artificial Intelligence or similar field
  • You have excellent Dutch and English communication skills, due to client needs
  • Analytical, inventive and practical
  • Python and/or R skills

What we offer you:

  • Working at a Great Place To Work with a pleasant atmosphere, enthusiastic colleagues who support you and many fun activities
  • Continuous development through the IG&H Academy and active on the job coaching

  • IG&H facilitates a Healthy Human programme, where you get guidance with all adjustments in life, such as having a child or being a caregiver to a sick family member
  • Possibility to work parttime (32 hours), at least 4 days a week
  • Great opportunity to make an active contribution to the further growth of the organization
  • And more, which we would love to elaborate on
