Business intelligence / data warehouse consultant opportunities and salaries

Hi,

I'm senior business intelligence / data warehouse consultant working in this field more then 7 years. I currently located in UK, but considering to move to Switzerland.

My expertise includes solid hands-on technical skills with SQL Server, Oracle, OBIEE, Informatica, SSIS, SSAS, SSRS, Business Objects, Tableau and Qlikview.

Master degree. Basic German language.

What opportunities(is there any demand of such specialist) and salary I could expect in Switzerland?

Thanks in advance.

From what I've seen (I'm in the same general field) there's plenty going around.

Expect around the 130k mark for general DW/BI roles in banking, perhaps 150k for design and data architecture related roles.

Agree with the above. You're not a native English speaker which could count against you. However, the salary range above should still hold.

Re: Business intelligence / data warehouse consultant opportunities and salaries

Thank you for useful information.

I contacted few recruitment agencies regards opportunities in Switzerland and both was useless.

Moreover they refused to store my CV, because I don't live in Switzerland and don't have permit and I don't know Swiss German - only basic German.

First time felt political racism...

Re: Business intelligence / data warehouse consultant opportunities and salaries

What is your nationality?

If you are British, it should not be a big problem. BIDW is in good demand everywhere around and also in Switzerland. What is your functional / Industry expertise? With BI it equally important to have the industry or functional expertise. With Oracle and SAP BI you shouldn't find it very difficult. If needed please PM me to connect. I am not a recruiter though.

Salary Range of 130k should is very much in range..

Hi

I am from Lithuania. Is that makes any difference?

There is plenty of work proposals in BI field, but there is just few within English speaking environment.

I was involved in complete BI/DW project life cycle in finance, telecommunication and retail industry.

So why would you feel "political racism"?

Re: Business intelligence / data warehouse consultant opportunities and salaries

What are the best sites to search for BI jobs in English? I have heard of Swisslinx and Jobserve, any other sites?

Thanks
