About the role
This is still very much a hands-on role where you will be making best use of the increasing amount of data available to make more informed pricing decisions for our financial services business, ultimately creating value for our customer.
Reporting to the Head of Insurance, you will work with the business to help us make the right decisions at the right times. Whether it’s providing performance analytics on insurance and warranties, or developing statistical models for price optimisation, you’ll be expected to provide commercial insight and recommendations, communicating these in a compelling, impactful way to senior stakeholders.
You’ll work on multiple priorities within a fast-paced, dynamic environment. You’ll need to be able to manage the expectations of stakeholders alongside prioritising your workload. You will play your part to meet the broader needs of the business and deliver a world class, personalised experience for our customer.
You’ll be surrounded by the best talent across Financial Services and the wider group – working collaboratively to fulfil the ambitions of the business and the FS Pricing team.
Critical decisions are made here every day and acted upon immediately – giving you every chance to make a real impact, make decisions and quickly see the results
You’re curious, analytical and logical by nature with a keen eye for detail. You will be highly proficient with SQL or SAS with advanced Microsoft Excel skills too.
We’re also interested in your softer skills - your ability to coach and develop other analysts, work with challenging stakeholders along with the ability to solve complex problems and relay solutions in a simple, clear and concise way.
Working at pace with competing and changing priorities doesn’t faze you - you thrive in that type of environment, you’re not afraid to challenge the status quo.
Commercially aware with the ability to present your findings into actionable business recommendations, you’re comfortable in dealing with stakeholders at all levels.
The type of people we look for here at Shop Direct are resilient, hungry to learn and can work collaboratively. We want people to be able to change the way we work and not be scared to try different ways of working .
