Jaywing Welcomes New Placement Students to Consultancy Division

Jaywing is pleased to announce the addition of two new placement students to our consulting team, Abisola Akinjole and Mustafa Khoshnaw. The recruitment of junior consultants aligns with our vision to reinforce our workforce, embark on new large-scale projects, and provide senior staff with enhanced supervisory opportunities. 

With a focus on machine learning and statistical mathematics, Mustafa Khoshnaw, a Data Science student at Manchester Metropolitan University, will be joining Jaywing for a nine-month placement. Abisola Akinjole, who is pursuing a degree in Big Data Analytics at Sheffield Hallam University, will serve as a skilled data storyteller during her 11-month tenure with us. 

We were delighted to receive over 100 applications for our placement positions, and after careful consideration, we shortlisted 12 promising candidates who were invited to an assessment day at Jaywing's Sheffield office. Both Abisola and Mustafa truly stood out for their exceptional ability to interpret and contextualise data, while adeptly identifying bugs and anomalies. 

Following their placements with Jaywing, Abisola and Mustafa will return to university to complete their final dissertations, equipped with the invaluable experience gained during their time with our experts.

"We are thrilled to welcome these talented masters' students and are committed to supporting their continued growth in their studies and future careers." 

Jaywing will also welcome two additional students in September, further expanding our consultancy division. This growth in our team reflects our dedication to fostering talent and pushing the boundaries of data science.
