Data Analyst

Our client has taken the first step in organising its data from a business-wide strategic standpoint with the development of a single customer view.  It has also invested in a market-leading data management platform (DMP), and has several other data sources which have not, to date, been fully utilised from an insight perspective.

A Data Analyst is needed who can provide business insights to the data team, for dissemination to the relevant areas of the business; content, marketing and commercial, from a variety of data sources used by the publisher.  It is also the role of the Data Analyst to respond to and shape requests from key stakeholders for data that can be applied to these business areas to improve customer engagement and retention, shape product development and increase revenues.

The candidate needs to be able to distinguish between the delivery of data and the delivery of insights that are of use to the business.

  • Compilation of regular management information reports from data sources.
  • Identify key audience or interest-based trends and insights from the first party data which could have business applications.
