Asia-Pacific clinical trials industry is seeing a hiring jump in big data roles

Some parts of the world are seeing heavier investment in big data roles than others.

By Data Journalism Team

Asia-Pacific was the fastest growing region for big data hiring among clinical trial operations industry companies in the three months ending June.

The number of roles in Asia-Pacific made up 12% of total big data jobs – up from 10.8% in the same quarter last year.

That was followed by Europe, which saw a 0.2 year-on-year percentage point change in big data roles.

The figures are compiled by GlobalData, who track the number of new job postings from key companies in various sectors over time. Using textual analysis, these job advertisements are then classified thematically.

GlobalData's thematic approach to sector activity seeks to group key company information by topic to see which companies are best placed to weather the disruptions coming to their industries.

These key themes, which include big data, are chosen to cover "any issue that keeps a CEO awake at night".

By tracking them across job advertisements it allows us to 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.
