European Head of Business Intelligence, multi-site consumer services- Birmingham, competitive salary

I am currently retained on a search for a high-quality European Head of Business Intelligence for a high growth multi-site consumer driven business based in Birmingham. Turning over £350m+, my client is looking for a strong performing business analytics lead to develop strategy and solutions for the company, along with aiding deeper understanding of the markets.

A key aspect of this opportunity is operating as a senior advisor, translating business strategy into analytics strategy ensuring the board has an improved understanding of the markets that the business competes in. The role will be responsible for the launch of the UK and European data analytics provision, setting short, medium and long-term objectives to support the wider commercial agenda and maximise business performance. Having the ability to build a 'fact-first' mindset within the Executive team is vital, in order to make information readily-available to drive high growth and strategic decision making.

In order to be successful, my client is looking for a candidate who can proactively identify opportunities in data to drive outstanding client experience for the company, employing a 'customer first' mindset in the establishment of all new data and analytical processes. Further, regulatory & risk oversight and governance for the business is crucial. Identifying, managing and mitigating current/emerging risks, along with supporting the development of a 'risk management attitude' in all employees is critical in enabling the company to develop further.

A Post-graduate degree in the field of Statistics or Mathematics is ideal, along with a significant number of years' experience within an analytics environment. Whilst a multi-site background would be ideal, this is not essential.

If you feel you have strong communication skills across all levels, high data analysis experience, are self-reliant and are a resilient leader, please get in touch.
