You will recognise drivers of year on year performance, monitor online user behaviour and quantify risks and opportunities and provide insight to stakeholders regarding those influencing factors.

As a team, we’re on a drive to enable our partners around the business to self serve on their data. You will play a key role in this by understanding the pinch points in current abilities to self serve data in the team’s you partner, and aim to deliver a solution.

  • Experience building forecasts and targets
  • Highly numerate individual with strong attention to detail
  • Expert with Excel/Google sheets

After passing your onboarding and becoming a fully fledged HX’er, you’ll own a share of the company through our Employee Benefit Trust. As an added extra, you’ll also benefit from the success of the business; receiving a profit share bonus that is awarded as a percentage of salary. The more profit we make, the more bonus you receive!

And if that wasn’t enough, to help you maximise your time and manage your energy we have ‘Anytime +’ (our flexible working philosophy that says if you are contactable and connected it doesn’t matter where or when you work). And our ‘Wanderlust Collection’ encouraging our people to make the most of their time, offering 2 weeks a year to work remotely from anywhere in the world and rewarding long service with sabbaticals.

If that sounds like you, we’d like to see …
