A recruiter has shared a role you don't need a degree for, which she says can pay up to £60k a year with two years' experience. Find out more in the video below:
Eleni Pavlovic, 24, is a talent manager specialising in marketing, operations, people, finance, data and product.
She recommended job hunters look into the role of a product data analyst - adding that 'tech companies will be fighting over you' since it's a relatively new role not many people are doing right now.
What does this entail?
Eleni explains in a TikTok video: "You're normally working for some kind of app or platform where you'll be analysing the success of the product.
"So let's say if you were going to do that role on TikTok, you would be evaluating which parts of the app are most users using and which parts of the app they're not really going to.
"Then the areas they're not really visiting, you would be giving suggestions on how to better improve the product so that more people use it."
The best part of the role is you don't actually need a university degree to get hired.
However, Eleni adds that taking online courses to polish up your skillset isn't a bad idea, and you will need to be confident talking to 'senior stakeholders'.
With two year's experience under your belt, Eleni says you could be earning up to £60k, although GlassDoor has the average base pay for a product data analyst at a more modest £33k.
Speaking further about what makes a good product data analyst, Eleni said: "The skills someone needs really vary - that's the beauty of the role.
"I think you could come into it from all sorts of backgrounds.
"The main thing you need is a passion for making apps more efficient and improving the product, experience with analysis.
"You don't need a degree because it's not a typical analyst role, and you need to be comfortable speaking to senior stakeholders."
What's more, Eleni says now is the perfect time to look for a new role.
She said: "Companies are trying to backfill from hires that they were supposed to make in 2020, but they couldn't afford to because of the pandemic, alongside playing catch up for their growth plans for 2021, so it's a great time to start something new."
