Information Services Roles in London
Professional hires working for Information Services firms in London earn an average of £40,000 per year, not including performance related pay. Specialist software developers can earn more, particularly on a contract basis. The jobs available in this sector tend to be either in sales-related jobs like Account Manager or in product management categories responsible for the quality and integrity of the information provided to clients. For product management roles, the key attributes employers are looking for are attention to detail and the ability to react quickly to problems as they arise. Account management roles require more of a selling outlook and employees are expected to be able to understand clients’ requirements and take a pro-active approach to demonstrating the value that the information providers can add.
The Information Services market in London has historically been dominated by the big newswire companies. London is the regional head office of both Thomson Reuters and Bloomberg for Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Recently, however, specialist information providers have been growing fast, such as IHS Markit, providing new opportunities. Areas in demand at present include Oil industry specialists and people capable of working in value-added ancillary services like portfolio valuation.
