Why Start A Career with Aleph Insights

Company vision and mission 

Aleph Insights is a small, boutique analytical and data science consultancy that specialises in serving clients in the defence, security and risk management domains. Our experience has shown us that there are many areas in these sectors where decisions are still made based on instinct or tradition. We believe that data and new technologies can be transformative in improving decision-making. We have grown organically since our foundation in 2014, but have now reached a stage where our reputation and portfolio of clients is able to underpin potentially quite rapid expansion. Over the next two years, we want to both expand our current market share in our established sectors and move into other sectors such as healthcare, insurance and capital investment. We now have a collection of IP, experience and contacts which we believe will support this growth and we are now looking for the talent to support our plans.

A career at Aleph Insights looks like

Our culture is defined by a shared intellectual curiosity and a belief that better decision-making ultimately benefits all causes. Having the passion to change things is only one piece of the jigsaw. To be successful in having an impact, we believe you also need the evidence to know how to change things optimally. We are a small company, which errs towards the informal. We try to concentrate on outcomes rather than processes. The things we hate are bureaucracy, presenteeism and hierarchies. The things we love are good ideas, analytical thinking and data.

Diversity in inclusion strategy 

We are fairly early on in our journey and we are looking for talented people to help us reach our destination. We are not currently at a scale where we have formalised career pathways or programmes, but we want to make sure we suitably reward the people who help us achieve our goals. It is in our interests to ensure that progression and incentives within our company are entirely meritocratic and that talent recognition is unaffected by cognitive biases. We definitely don’t have all the answers about how to achieve this, but we definitely are open to ideas about how to ensure we create the right opportunities and environment for everyone. We are very interested in receiving and implementing suggestions for policies, structures or actions that will help create a diverse and inclusive organisation that promotes, remunerates and allocates responsibility based purely on ability and contribution, and which listens to every voice equally.
