Are you a talented and experienced analyst who can turn your skills to any business problem? Are you an expert in analysing large and complex datasets, quickly finding insights, and defining how others can use them efficiently and at scale? Are you looking for a fresh challenge, to work on varied projects with executives and stakeholders at all levels, and shape our Data strategy?
We are looking for a self starter who thrives on working with complex problems, that are often not yet clearly defined, finding smart innovative solutions that are both tactical and strategic, juggling multiple challenges and stakeholders, and recommending priorities - all in a fast paced environment.
This is a new team of 5, including a Senior Manager, and this role will report into the Senior Manager.  They in turn, will report into the Head of Analytics, sitting within the Chief Data Officer’s central data organisation.
Projects could be small or large, and examples might be; redesigning our web and app tracking data & reporting, or looking at how we optimise BigQuery usage across analyst teams (both strategically critical to maximising value from our data), or analysis to inform our single customer view, or working with new business areas - such as Stadium Goods or Harrods - to help them identify opportunity and set up their analytical capability.

  • Help develop our scalable approach to data at Farfetch; improving, innovating and championing initiatives around: actionable insights, single version of the truth,  automation, BQ & BI performance, data quality, harmonisation and governance
  • Contribute to our Analytics Community; building relationships, defining ways of working, and helping us build our capability
