Work Pattern - 2 days a week in the office

Skills - Similar previous role or level of managerial responsibility

Salary - up to around £120,000 dependant on experience

For the last 3 years Oscar have been working with a rapidly growing technology company based in Manchester who have been going from strength to strength and are now starting to dominate the field in which they operate. 2022 is a huge year for them, they have new brands, new product launches and have been growing quickly.

One priority for them now is to develop their Data and Analytics function and develop a cutting-edge analytics practise using the most up-to-date technologies and they are looking for someone to lead this, this is where you come in.

The Role

This is an amazing opportunity; you will effectively have ownership of all things data! Currently they have Senior Figures in management positions within Data Architecture and Engineering, MI Reporting and Digital Analytics and these teams will all report into this position. The position reports to Board Level. Total headcount in the data team is around 13-14 people, you will be managing them.

Over the last 18 months or so a lot of work has gone into improving their infrastructure within Data and Analytics, for example:

  • They have a new cloud-based data warehouse (AWS)
  • They have a new and improved MI Reporting Solution
  • They have been working with a consultancy to optimise their use of Salesforce
  • They have had a digital analytics overhaul to gain a far increased level of understanding.

What we are looking for now is someone to effectively knit this all together, put plans in place for further development and improve what they are doing across the business. They company has started generating huge amounts of data, at the moment it is more than they can generate insights from.

We are looking for someone to get involved with:

  • Long term strategy planning for the Data Function
  • Execution of Data Strategies
  • Bring new technologies into the business
  • Create a "Data First" culture, improve their MI offering and get more people in the business using MI
  • Champion the use of strategic data in the business
  • Continue to build and optimise a first-class data architecture and infrastructure
  • Upskill and develop the current team as well as get involved with growth / hiring
  • Get involved with project work, act as a 1st line of help for problems and get involved with technical work with the team.

You will be ultimately responsible to the board, so we are look for excellent stakeholder skills, but we are also looking for a strong technical background within Data. You will be expected to get involved with projects, help where needed and upskill the team.

About you

We are looking for someone who has been in a similar level of responsibility. You will need to come with a background that covers a wide-ranging spectrum of the technologies within Data and Analytics and not be afraid to role your sleeves up and dive into some technical work with the team. You will also be expected to work with the board, so experience working with C Suite is required.
