What you will be doing: 


  • You’ll run strategy projects and project workstreams that input in to the business planning process
  • Getting to grips with this business, you’ll develop a strong understanding of what we do, drivers behind cost, customer satisfaction, business impact and how processes work
  • We’ll look to you to identify areas of improvement and options for change with pro’s, cons and costs
  • Your insight will come from a combination of robust analysis of data, reviews of other industries and competitors, latest technology trends and accumulated knowledge
  • You’ll build business case for proposed solutions including financial, customer and team impacts and develop the plan to put this change in to practice
  • Stakeholder engagement is also key to this role – ensuring excellent communication through a project 


Why we’d love you to apply: 


  • Degree qualified from a discipline that has expanded your critical thinking and developed your strategic mindset  
  • Outstanding analytical and technical experience (SQL or Python desirable although not essential)
  • Excellent communication skills as well as a flexible and adaptable approach. You’ll also need to be tenacious and resilient.
  • Analytical rigour is a must; you’ll need to have a structured and methodical approach and an open mind with previous experience of an analytical and insight-driven role
  • The ability to spot opportunities, influence upwards and challenge others will ensure you succeed in this role.
  • Ideally from a consultancy-type background, you’ll also be familiar with project management methodology and have previous experience of holding a strategy-planning role 


In return, we will offer you:  


  • A market competitive base salary
  • Up to 10% annual bonus
  • Sharesave scheme and Individual BUPA healthcare
  • A collaborative work culture that focuses on enabling your success and continuing your personal development combined with a genuine flexible working policy
  • Optional contributory pension matched up to 10%
  • Free parking across our Head Office campus and up to 25% discount off our brands
