Senior Analyst / Data Scientist


I am looking for an experienced statistical analyst or ambitious data scientist to join this customer data strategy consultancy as they expand their data science offering

This is a great opportunity to work within an agency environment, with a truly consultative output, delivering multiple projects around loyalty, analytics & data science, CRM, change and business strategy.

This role is being hired to support the newly appointed Head of Product, working on the technical development of their automated reporting tool. You will be working on building the analytical functionality into the product, in order to sell to clients.

They are keen to appoint someone with either a modern data science or strong statistical analytical background, as well as strong multi-tasking skills. You will be working across multiple clients, directly with them as well as the members of the team, balancing and prioritising tasks. Everyone who works here is in dependant in their approach, taking full autonomy for their work and deliverables. Having said that, it's a small firm, so there is a culture of support and collaboration - but you are treated as an adult and expected to manage your time and client's expectations accordingly!

In addition there will be ad hoc projects requiring your expertise, including more advanced modelling and analytical work on behalf of global tech clients and a number of major retailers.

Examples of current projects running include building some really clever tools to pull data from Google and visualising it in innovative ways, modelling retail data within a Big Data environment and doing advanced modelling for a large CRM database.

You will be intellectually curious, dynamic and highly personable with a solutions focused approach to your work. Your work is varied, so the ability to flex and adapt depending on the projects at hand is key.

A great opportunity for those Customer Analysts who wish to diversify their experience in data science and more advanced analytical projects, or data scientists keen to expand their commercial experience and be part of a growing offering an team. And although the business does not currently employ open source tools such as R or Python, this is something they are keen to develop into; which you would play a significant part of.
