SAS Programmer recruitment agency listing

An SAS programmer is responsible for creating computer programs that gather, interpret and present complicated statistics and data.

Most people working in the role have gained a degree in one of the life sciences; however, some have degrees in science, mathematics or computers. A specific qualification in SAS programming is not always a prerequisite for employment, but being in possession of an SAS Advanced Diploma will be looked on favourably by recruitment agencies and employers. The most important factor that employers are looking for is a track record in SAS programming within real life situations.

Successful applicants will need to demonstrate statistical and analytical skills, and they may be required to demonstrate those skills in an assessment before an offer of employment is made. Candidates must be in possession of excellent communication skills, as the very essence of the role involves gathering and imparting information. Pharmaceutical companies often hire their own SAS programmers, as drug trials and research programmes rely heavily on data analysis.

Competition for permanent positions is fierce, but there are currently a number of fixed-term and temporary staff positions in the marketplace. A junior programmer can expect a salary of between £25,000 and £40,000; however, those with vast experience who are eligible for management roles can expect to earn up to £90,000 per year.
