What you’ll be doing
We’ll bet you didn’t think that analysing data had a big place in Communications, right? Well you’d be wrong. In our Incentive, Recognition and Ambassador Programmes, we have over 20,000 colleagues, and we need to make sure these programmes are optimised to really deliver benefits for everyone. And we need to use data to do that. As we run campaigns, you’ll be there to review all the results and make sure we’re maximising revenue and value by carrying out statistical analysis.
You’ll be collecting, organising and studying data that helps us inform our strategy and approach to rewarding colleagues. That means you’ll help identify, collect, migrate and interpret data to and from a range of internal and external systems as well as manipulate and link different data sets together. You’ll also carry out tasks like querying the data using Business Objects, SAP and Excel. Once we’ve got the data we need, you’ll help check the data quality and clean it, to make sure it can really help us make good decisions.
When it comes to the analysis side of things, we’ll teach you a whole range of techniques to help visualise and present data back to the business, so it’s easy for people to understand. Things like data mining, time series forecasting, and modelling techniques to identify and predict trends and patterns in data. You’ll work with our amazing team of professionals to create performance dashboards and other reports for other teams to use; so, you’ll need to be a great communicator to explain everything.
It’s a really analytical job and you’ll need an eye for detail, but you’ll always be learning new skills and techniques to really help build your career. If you’ve got some good skills with Powerpoint and Excel, then they would really help with this role. By the end of your apprenticeship, you’ll be able to help the business make decisions through research and insight – a really critical role.
This job is available in the Consumer part of our business.
