Power BI Analyst / Developer
Rate: £40,000 - £45,000
Location: Remote working (potential travel to the Northwest)
Duration: 12 months FTC
Sellick Partnership has been engaged to recruit a Power BI Analyst / Developer for a very successful and instantly recognisable multisite retail business.
This is a 12 months FTC and whilst the role is remote working you will be expected to travel on the odd occasion to the Northwest. Ideally you will be immediately available or on a short notice period and have significant experience in a similar role within an FMCG, retail, wholesale, logistics operations or multisite organisation.
As a Power BI Analyst / Developer, we will look to you to develop complex Power BI dashboards that will be used to provide insight into business performance. You will work closely with their finance team to really understand their data and processes, so you can then build reports and dashboards that provide highly commercial and measurable insight. It's a big job. But it's one in which you will have the opportunity to play a key role in their journey to improve the quality of insight and analytical capability and reduced reliance on Excel based solutions. General duties include:-
- Develop Power BI reports and dashboards, using industry leading visualisation techniques to enable end users to quickly interpret and understand business performance
- Manage their reporting catalogue, making sure it's properly maintained and continuously improved
- Use SQL and Power BI to assemble, interpret and present large and complex data sets - always with the end user in mind
- Work closely with the wider finance team to translate their needs into commercially relevant dashboards and reports
- Mentor and upskill colleagues across the team in the use of Microsoft Power BI suite
- Drive a culture of continuous improvement and best practise, always looking for opportunities to use technology to improve processes and find more efficient ways of working
The successful applicant will come from a similar role and be able to demonstrate proven Microsoft Power BI and SQL experience within an FMCG, retail, wholesale, logistics operations or multisite organisation. A Lean Six Sigma qualification would be beneficial, but not essential
You will have a background in change management, with experience of delivering new technology to improve processes and ways of working coupled with phenomenal communication skills, with a talent for building positive relationships with partners across the business.
Experience of building reports and dashboards that add commercial value to the business is a must with excellent organisational skills, with the ability to manage conflicting priorities in a fast-paced environment.
Focussed on delivering specific objectives, being proactive, dynamic and self-motivated with a desire to find and deliver improvements. In addition you will have the ability to work independently and together with other personnel both finance and non-finance.
You will have a creative and innovative approach to problem solving and analysis; delivery orientated - able to work in pressurised environments, meet multiple deadlines and manage own priorities.
You will also be able to demonstrate business acumen and ability to gain knowledge across the breadth of a variety of functions. You will also be able to take a 'big picture' view with demonstrable internal consultancy and influencing skills, while possessing a keen eye for the detail.
If you consider yourself to be a committed, career driven professional who can demonstrate the above experience and who would welcome the stimulus of this commercial finance post then we would be pleased to hear from you.
