We need:

  • A Resourcing and Reporting Analyst in our Product Operations Change Practice

In this role within the Product Operations Change Practice you will be part of a small Change Performance & Reporting Team. Working closely with our change delivery teams, PMO Analysts and Senior Management, you will manage, analyse and report on resourcing and in flight change to enable short, medium and long-term decision making for the Practice.

This is a fast-paced environment which ensures delivery of our change agenda across people, process, technology, and regulatory changes for our multi-site operational teams along with the Society’s communications and logistics function, making a direct and real difference to our business and members.

All our people have commitments and interests outside of their working day. The diversity that brings is something our colleagues and our members really value. We recognise that traditional working patterns don’t work for everyone, so we’re delighted to welcome your application for this role on a full-time or flexible working basis.

Examples of the types of flexible working we offer include reduced hours, part time and condensed hours.

We guarantee that your application will be judged only on the skills and capabilities you can offer compared to the requirements of the role, and also that we’ll be open and transparent in our conversations with you about how your specific preferences can be accommodated against the demands of this position.

Who we're looking for

As a minimum requirement you’ll have:

  • Previous experience in an analyst or project related role
  • Experience in resourcing and reporting within either an operational or project-based role
  • Expert level PC skills across Excel, Word, PowerPoint and Outlook
  • Advanced problem-solving capabilities
  • Excellent facilitation, communication and influencing skills
  • Excellent knowledge in data interrogation and analysis, with a keen eye for detail
  • Strong numerical and analytical skills; being able to interpret data into meaningful insight to senior managers
  • Experience in producing high quality reports, presentations and papers suitable for an executive level audience


It would be nice if you also had:

  • An understanding of the Product Operations and Communications, Delivery & Logistics business areas, including their purpose, strategy and operational processes

What you'll be doing

Reporting is vital and your work will provide the Practice with quality data to assess project performance as well as providing insight and recommendations on how we best allocate our change resources. You will need to be a highly pro-active and resilient individual who can work with all levels of the business to get the best outcomes.

Reporting to the Senior Change Portfolio Lead and working with your colleagues in the Change Performance & Reporting Team and Senior Management, you will:

  • Deliver accurate resource schedules that maximise availability to match current resource demand across the Change Practice
  • Providing insight and reporting of resource availability for the next 12 months
  • Provide an objective view of resource recommendations for new resource demand
  • Ensure that planning is in place where there are any resource hotspots and provide options to the Senior Management team if projects are unable to start as a result of resource constraints
  • Proactively driving forward ideas and solutions to ensure processes, procedures and reporting are continually improved
  • Provide reporting (up to Director level) on the change landscape, resource profile and reporting of financial benefits
  • Tracking of employee headcount across the Change Practice to inform recruitment and budget management decisions
  • Develop relationships with Senior Management to enable the proactive planning
  • Play an active role within the governance processes for prioritisation of change and resource planning
