How many times have you said, "if only I’d…"? Everyday new opportunities present themselves to us, be this a chance to learn and grow, tea rather than coffee, or simply what outfit to wear. How do we make those decisions? Well that’s where world class insights professionals come in.
The ability to analyse complex data from diverse sources and provide businesses with insight on where and how they can grow is becoming a critical skill set.
Good IT skills are essential - a minimum of strong MS Excel, with SQL being desirable alongside data visualisation software (Tableau, PowerBI, Business Objects, Qlikview, etc). But we know that if you’ve been in industry for some time you may have experience with other proprietary systems for doing your analysis, and that’s equally fine, we’d just need to understand what it is.
Alongside this are your softer insights skills. Understanding the Why and not just the What is a key skill. Anyone can create a graph, but telling someone with no technical knowledge or previous exposure to the data what it is saying is where you come into your own.
We are working with a number of clients who are looking for insights professionals to join their organisations across the East Midlands. Roles, locations and salaries vary but there is a need for people like you. Your background could be in insights, category management, marketing or business analysis, FMCG, retail, finance, it doesn’t matter - the important thing is being able to engage people and explain the Why.
