About the role

We are currently recruiting a Senior Data Analyst to join our team on a 12-month fixed term contract.

This role will also involve significant stakeholder engagement as you work with stakeholders to define and document business requirements and programme manage the implementation of analytics solutions that meet and exceed customer needs and expectations.

You will design and develop robust data models that support BI requirements and enable efficient data analysis, utilising this data analysis to advise business stakeholders on patterns, trends and insights. You will also develop comprehensive documentation, including business glossary, data rules and update to continue alignment with evolving business needs.

Your Power BI skills will be well used as you create and maintain visually appealing and interactive dashboards, reports, and data visualisations, ensuring their accuracy, reliability and efficiency by optimising data model performance. These insightful analytics will enable data driven decision making across our business. You’ll monitor Power BI performance to identify and resolve potential bottlenecks and inefficiencies and proactively suggest and implement measures to enhance the performance and responsiveness of Power BI solutions.

You’ll use your technical knowledge and coaching skills to provide guidance and mentorship to members of the BI and analytics teams, promoting a high performing and collaborative environment.

About you

In this role you will utilise your excellent collaborative and customer service skills as you apply your expertise and technology to analyse and meet stakeholder expectations, and deliver results. You’ll have a strong problem-solving capability, demonstrating a strategic “whole of business” approach to problem solving, while also maintaining an eye for detail, and showcasing the ability to multi-task and meet deadlines. You’ll also have excellent verbal and written communication skills, enabling you to articulate complex technical concepts to a variety of different stakeholders across our business, at both a site and group level.
