Head of Analytics Solutions - Management Consultancy

We're recruiting on behalf of an International Management Consultancy who specialise within marketing CRM, analytics and insight space solutions for clients.

Those solutions can be a mixture of structure, capabilities, people and the technology platforms which empower best-in-class data and analytics insight capabilities.

They're seeking a subject matter expert in all things Big Data, marketing analytics and insight to join them in a role which support the pre-sales consultancy piece, working with clients to understand their business problems, then applying your wealth of experience to device appropriate solutions.

This will be a client facing position, working with Tier 1 banks, telcos, professional services businesses, working as the ‘expert in the room' for all things CRM data and the technology solutions which empower them.

Your key client stakeholders will be Chief Data Officers, Analytics and Insight Directors, Chief Data Scientists, Heads of Analytics and the likes from big banks, telcos, professional services industries, retail and lots more.

Despite your needing to know the various tools of the trade, and when's best to advise SAS over SPSS or R, this isn't a techie role! You need to have a really sound understanding of how to get to the bottom of business related issues to identify how to scope and pull together the right solution to meet that client's business specific needs.

Your role will be confirmed as ‘home based', but the expectation is to be based from client site or their offices in Bristol up to 3 days a week, with those clients being a mix of UK (principally London), Stockholm and Zurich.

The other 2 days you will literally be based at home.

You will be working from a completely solution agnostic perspective - not tied to any proprietary platform of technology provider.

The idea is to provide the best solution to meet the client's need - and that will be a mixture of manpower and technology - with solutions covering the likes of CRM database solutions for inbound or outbound marketing, data capture, storage and analysis, personalisation capabilities, predictive analytics, marketing effectiveness solutions and/or Big Data solutions.

It's important you have a broad view of the technologies which empower CRM/Insight/Analytical capabilities and thereby unlock the potential held within their data.

You will then responsible for scoping the solution and its design, before handing it over to a project team to see out delivery, with you overseeing periodically to ensure it's on-track and will achieve the client's business objectives.

Once the solution is agreed, you will be responsible for the high-level design of the technical solution and it's roadmap for delivery, but won't specifically project manage its delivery - that will be handled by other teams within the business.

It's important, because of the nature of this role, you're the kind of person who is able to work in unstructured environments and know how to probe clients to get the best out of them in order to drive the required solution design that meets their needs.

You will have the back-up support of other SME's who cover other international territories and the business has a strong ongoing pipeline of prospective opportunities with clients they need your help with securing taking a consultancy approach.

But you need to be the ‘expert in the room' in order to be successful in application to enable the ability to hit the ground running.
