Have a mind for data and a knack for deriving insights to drive real growth and deliver cut-through? Tired of the small budgets, and working for a company that makes critical decisions on a whim, rather than data-led insight?

On behalf of our client a well-established company in the banking sector – we’re looking for an Analytics and Insights Specialist who wants to work in a high-performing team!

Either way, you’ll strive to improve performance and understand how to apply analytics to deliver insights that elevate marketing and digital experiences for hundreds of thousands of Kiwis just like you.

Day-to-day you will identify opportunities and issues relating to the performance of the product portfolios, policies, strategies and reporting, build SQL queries and dashboards, and be the go-to person for the team in translating hard data to intelligent insights of “what works” and what doesn’t. You’re absolutely key to being the bridge between analytics and implementation for the wider marketing and digital teams!

The ideal candidate will have an aptitude for numbers, a passion for data, and an excellent technical communicator as you’ll have to be able to relay information in a precise manner. You’ll be a critical thinker, a curious person by nature, and solutions focused. Of course, if you bring your ambition to the mix, you’ll go far in the team and your career!
