Commercial Analytics Manager

Data & Analytics London, United Kingdom


Description

Your role will be critical to ensuring we identify the greatest selection of luxury product for the site – reducing wastage of products and categories that don’t resonate with our customer and avoiding missed commercial opportunities through not having enough of the bestselling product.

 This person will bring a heavy quantitative skillset to the team (the “science”) but also be comfortable working with and embracing, the “art” from our fashion / trend-focused buying teams.

We’re looking for an analytical, commercially minded, strategic thinker, who is confident turning large data sets and complicated problems into digestible, packaged insights.

What you’ll do

    • Determine what analyses will help prove or disprove the hypotheses
    • Execute the analyses by using SQL and/or a range of tools & resources (e.g. Excel, Looker)
    •  Prepare your findings in an easily digestible format for key stakeholders (e.g. Looker dashboards, PowerPoint, email)
  • You will design and develop new methodologies for understanding data efficiently. This will enable you to build mastery of the ‘how’
    • Be proactive in identifying opportunities to optimise data processing and interpretation, especially for analyses that must be conducted on a regular basis
    • Prioritise these opportunities based on time saved and value to the business
    • Implement robust methodologies with checks to ensure high data quality
  • You will collaborate with other key stakeholders within the commercial, and across the business, to incorporate their qualitative input. This will enable you to build the mastery of ‘why’
    • Review your findings with the Planning, Data Science, and Strategy functions.
    • Work with the Business Development, Account Management and Brand Partnership functions to consider the practical challenges of our industry
  • Introduce new, advanced data techniques to ensure that supply analysis and planning is as sophisticated, efficient and accurate as possible
  • Establish key processes and ways of working with internal stakeholders;
  • Innovate and identify projects that the business needs, using the data available.
  • Support on training for the team
