My client is a world leading retailer offering a diverse service to their customers.
This is a great opportunity for a highly analytical graduate. The company offers excellent career progression.
I'm seeking a strong Analyst to work as part of a team.

The work is high-profile and gives you the opportunity to swiftly deliver significant benefits to the business.
Through your analytical skills, you will provide understanding of the root causes behind problems or observed patterns.
The department is not an IT department and doesn't provide applications to the business. However as part of your analysis, modelling and monitoring work you will often need to create a program to automate repetitive tasks or to do large scale number crunching.
- A minimum of a 2:1 degree in a Numerical, Science or Engineering based subject
- 300 UCAS points from your top 3 A-levels or equivalent
- Evidence of having used analytical skills and ideally evidence of managing large amounts of data
