IT Business Data Analyst

At AstraZeneca we turn ideas into life changing medicines. Working here means being results-oriented, thinking big and working together to make the impossible a reality. We’re passionate about the potential of science to address the unmet needs of patients around the world. We commit to those areas where we believe we can really change the course of medicine and bring big new insights to life.

An Overview of the Role

As a Business Data Analyst within Business Performance you will be playing a key role in defining, storing, analysing and communicating measures; allowing high-level, data-driven determinations to be made across a wide variety of technology towers and presenting analytical information to non-technical business leaders and stakeholders, enabling them to make the best possible strategic decisions.

An understanding of data related software packages is strongly desirable, although more important is a quick aptitude to pick up new tools and techniques as required.

In more detail...

We see you supporting the Business Performance Managers in defining the Business Performance measure that will underpin all CSIS strategies and Score Card objectives. This means you will play an important part in identifying and agreeing the calculations and information sources for these measures.

You will be responsible for defining and continually improving data models, data storage and data collection techniques, implementing lean processes. In addition to this, we expect you to own standard reports and dashboards; clearly and concisely communicating the performance indicators in an engaging way.

We see you being excellent in the field of data mining, data analysis, report preparation and presentation to senior leaders. We also expect an ability to learn and embrace the standard methodologies in statistics, BI reporting, predictive modelling and machine learning to effectively address the changing needs of the organisation.

What skills and experience do we need?

This is a highly critical role within the organisation and therefore we require someone with a specific set of skills and experience, to ensure we deliver on our objectives.

  • Clear understanding in business performance management
  • Sophisticated skills using the suite of Microsoft Office products and other data analytics tools
  • 2 to 6 years’ experience
  • Prior relevant experience in a similar role with good knowledge and experience in information / data governance and management
  • A passion for data processes and their importance in driving business performance!

Why AstraZeneca and why IT?

At AstraZeneca, patients are at the heart of everything we do. A global company that pushes the boundaries of science, we all share a big purpose: to discover and develop life-changing medicines that save lives. In IT we make a direct impact on that purpose –enabling the entire business to perform at its peak. Combining ground breaking science with leading digital technology platforms and our own data sets. Ours is a place to innovate, take ownership and run with it –with countless opportunities to learn and grow your career. You get to craft your path, but there’s support all the way. It’s a dynamic and results-oriented environment to work in and that’s why we like it. You’re trusted to explore and to find new solutions. But most of all we respect the collective –diverse minds that move at pace and collaborate openly. Here IT has the power to innovate, redefine an industry and change lives. That’s why we’re proud to work here!
