Job description

Recognising the continually growing demand for Business Intelligence, we are growing our UK BI team and are seeking exceptional candidates at all levels, with ambition and track record in delivering game changing BI solutions.

Our capabilities currently cover the full BI lifecycle and include formulating BI strategy, building business cases, solution design and assurance, implementing enterprise-wide BI and Analytics solutions using the Microsoft Business Intelligence software stack and running outsourced analytic solutions.

All positions would involve working on fee earning Business Intelligence engagements, providing professional advice and technical expertise on complex and often challenging projects. Engagements will be UK wide; therefore consultants are expected to travel and work away from home.

You can expect the role to involve many of the following:

• Identifying client issues where Business Intelligence can deliver tangible benefits,  shaping solutions and using them to deliver rapid improvements in performance to meet business needs

• Business analysis – engaging with client stakeholders at all levels, in both business and IT to drive out and prioritise requirements

• Designing and delivering Business Intelligence solutions for clients, utilising the full Microsoft Business Intelligence stack; including ETL, data warehousing, OLAP and reporting/analytics tools, and associated infrastructure considerations

• Data management design, including the description of data models, processes, and high level architectures including enterprise data management and governance


Desired Skills and Experience

We are looking for candidates who are able to operate in teams that cover the full spectrum of BI disciplines. You will be able to demonstrate that you can make a significant contribution in some or all of the following areas:

Consulting skills

• Business consulting skills, identifying and developing BI needs towards a cost justified business solution
• Experience of the full BI project lifecycle from innovative ideas through to BAU BI capability
• Knowledge of project and software delivery methodologies and ability to articulate the pros and cons of each in relation to the other, especially in relation to agile and more traditional waterfall approaches

BI implementation and delivery skills


Previous experience of the Microsoft Business Intelligence software stack would be ideal but not essential, since full training will be provided.


• BI solution design, showing end to end how the business objectives are delivered through the use of a BI data solution
• Data architecture and design, covering conceptual, logical and physical BI data model design, ETL data flow design, data capture and transformation rules and processes. Knowledge of the leading data management tools on the market (both ETL and RDBMS)
• Reporting and data presentation tool expertise, designing reporting and analytics delivery tools that support and deliver against business objectives. Knowledge of the leading reporting/data presentation/exploration on the market (covering reporting and charting, budgeting and planning, enterprise performance management, and analytics)
• Database administration and setup – establishing a new BI technical environment and setting up an appropriate system and data management operating procedures
• Experience in the use of leading BI reporting and analytics tools

Preferred Educational Requirements
Educated to degree level.


Further Information

Travel is an integral part of this position; although a majority of our work is based in the UK, candidates must be willing and able to travel as is required by the needs of our customers and our business. Although not frequent, this could also involve international assignments.

In return we offer a very comprehensive package including market leading salaries, private healthcare, generous pension fund, an extended benefits allowance of £1,900 per annum and 25 days paid vacation.
