What will you be doing
An exciting opportunity for a Commercial BI Analyst to join our Commercial BI team where you’ll support the strategic and tactical decisions of the Premier Inn Commercial function through your fantastic ability to create effective reporting and visualisation of data.
Working closely with the wider Commercial team and other business functions, you’ll develop and produce robust analysis and insight to support decision-making related to pricing, sales, marketing and digital merchandising as well as the maintenance of the Premier Inn Commercial reporting suite.
An expert on a specific functional area, you’ll play a key role in evolving the use of data visualisation tools across the business and be the point of contact and the ‘go to’ for the Premier Inn Commercial team and the wider business.
Why we would like you to apply
Inquisitive and curious in your approach, you have strong data manipulation skills and you are an expert when it comes to Excel. Experience in Tableau, Power BI or SQL would be a bonus but above all you will have a passion, drive and eagerness to learn and develop!
A highly logical individual, you couple your natural curiosity with your expert analytical skills and have the ability to communicate and engage across a team and among stakeholders.
You have a proactive approach to problem solving and love having the autonomy to develop your own hypotheses (and to challenge those of others) in relation to all commercial performance levers. You are a pro when it comes to delivering regular reporting and you also have a genuine desire to drive continuous improvement of the way we do this and the systems that we use.
The idea of joining a team where your insight and analytical ability can have an impact on commercial decisions hugely excites you and you can’t wait to apply to find out more!
