A global marketing analytics consultancy, specializing in customer behavior is hiring for a Head of Analytics to head up their UK analytics team. This is an amazing opportunity to work in partnership with two of the UK's largest grocery retailers, delivering insights and recommendations on campaigns and customer behavior.

Fundamentally, we are seeking a high performing senior analyst with programming skills in SAS and SQL, with a desire to lead a team and operate a senior, strategic level.

The consultancy works with two of the UK's largest grocery retailers and in turn their FMCG suppliers, delivering customer insights, loyalty consulting and multi-channel marketing.

You will be managing a team of 4 Analysts and have a further 2 to matrix manage. You will also work closely with the 2 Commercial Directors who look after the retail accounts to ensure the analytical projects are delivered successfully ongoing.

You are also the main POC for all UK analytics, setting the direction for the UK business, as well as being part of the global analytics team; so will be expected to work with other country leaders on developing best practice and global capabilities; leveraging these where you can.

From a technical perspective, you are expected to understand modern data and analytics but it's unlikely you will be hands on very often. They predominantly use SAS Base for statistical marketing analytics, but are also on boarding open source tech like R and Python.

So if you are interested in taking the step into a Head of role and keen to work in a client facing capacity, this role would be a great next step.
