Senior Data Analyst
We’re looking for a talented Senior Data Analyst on a 12-month contract to help us at what is an incredibly exciting time for the BBC – as it looks to evolve its digital audio service to serve future generations.
This role will be at the heart of that journey, providing regular reporting and insight to help the BBC Sounds team, as well supporting the wider Radio and Music Multiplatform teams continue to serve their audiences brilliantly in the face of significant shifts in the political and cultural zeitgeist around the world.
Based in London at the BBC’s New Broadcasting House, you’ll report to the Research Manager for Radio & Music Multiplatform, and be embedded in the BBC Sounds team, working with senior stakeholders.
You will be the go-to Analyst for the team, and will be working closely on driving key decision making, as you will play a pivotal role in the future of our BBC Sounds product.
Are you the right candidate?
Our ideal candidate may be a big music fan, or more interested in podcasts, but either way will have a specific interest in audio and its future in a digital world.
In addition you will:
- Be passionate about presenting data in new and interesting ways, using data visualisation tools such as Tableau.
- Feel confident presenting your findings to stakeholders, as you help drive the BBC in its goals.
- Have strong analytical skills, with fluency in SQL and experience using Analytical tools (such as Google Analytics, Adobe DAx, Adobe analytics or AT internet).
- Have strong stakeholder management skills with previous exposure to senior managers, as you will be working directly with many of them, and will have to make decisions autonomously (with support from the Research Manager).
If it sounds like you, even if you don't tick all the boxes, we would love to hear from you!
Contract type: 12-months FTC/Attachment
Location: London (NBH - Oxford Circus)
