• A Data Consultant in our Head Offices in Swindon.
• £35,309 - £51,002 a year on a permanent contract.
We’re moving forward into the next chapter of our Society’s history with a refreshed strategy that allows us to leverage the benefits of mutuality and adapt to the ever-changing needs of our members. Data underpins this and all five of our cornerstones and is a great enabler towards achieving our ambition of building society, nationwide. We’re transforming the way we collect, look after and use member and business data, and that is why we’re creating new roles as important step in strengthening the data competence we need to realise the opportunity that data presents for our members and colleagues.
The Data & Analytics community is responsible for transforming our data and analytics capability to enable our colleagues to better serve our members’ needs. Within the community, the Data and Analytics Solutions team is responsible for the design, engineering, test and deployment of our data platforms and solutions which are at the core of our strategic ambitions. We’re significantly expanding and strengthening our inhouse teams and working closely with key strategic partners to deliver our strategic ambitions.
An exciting opportunity has arisen to join the Data & Analytics Dev Ops Projects team as a data consultant to lead a new data provisioning capability that will underpin our member communications strategy. This includes both mandatory and business critical communications to enable the Society to service our members accounts, and to allow us to fulfil our regulatory requirements.
Who we're looking for
Extensive experience in working within a data warehouse environment – this could have been gained in any company or business sector – with experience working within the financial sector being preferred.
5 years plus experience in working with SAS software (with SAS Base certification preferred but not essential) and SQL database technologies (T-SQL, MS SQL server, star schema), with a detailed understanding of data governance principles, and hold a technical or numerate degree.
Experience of stakeholder and/or project management, alongside requirements analysis would also be essential.
What you'll be doing
You will join a small team to drive the team’s Member Service Communications data agenda whilst leading both planned & ad hoc data provisioning requests across our core product range. As part of our project life-cycle, you’ll work with the team manager to identify and interpret business requirements for changes to our data warehouse. Using SAS, you’ll then create data that is fit for purpose and clearly understood. The data provided will build a detailed understanding about our business allowing its recipients to make informed decisions about the Society’s vision and goals. We have a wide range of internal stakeholders from across the Society, whose decisions depend on the data we provide to them. This means that the data needs to be fit for purpose, requiring assurance that it is accurate, complete and produced in a timely manner.
The extras you'll get
If you put a lot in, it’s only fair you should get a lot out. So if you help us do the right thing for our customers, we’ll help further your career at Nationwide. As well as your salary, there’s life insurance a pension and a recognition and rewards scheme. We think it’s a great place to work, and we’re not afraid of giving you praise when you’ve done well.
