We’re looking for someone with a data analysis background to support Argos Financial Services in monitoring all aspects of the “customer value chain”, from acquisition through to customer management for all AFS products. Our customer value chain focuses on driving good customer outcomes and therefore encouraging returning Argos Financial Services customers.

You’ll assist in the monitoring, evaluating, communicating and reporting on all aspects of the “customer value chain” providing the business with updates on portfolio performance and overall profitability by supporting the build of a new reporting suite. You will investigate new opportunities for the business including new products, adapting to new regulations and new ways of working.

You’ll be a support to other teams within AFS by providing commercial analytical insight, challenging initiatives to maximise the customer value or by optimising costs. You’ll be part of the full process of business change, starting at analysing to quantify the change, gaining stakeholders support to gain business governance approval and support implementation of business change initiatives.

You will be joining Argos Financial Services where our aim is to make life better every day for Argos customers. We help customers afford and protect what matters most, offering products and services including Credit, Warranties & Insurance. We are part of Sainsbury’s Bank, part of the wider Sainsbury’s Group, we’re an exciting and growing organisation and as our customers seek more innovative services and technology, being part of one of the UK’s most trusted brands brings our colleagues exciting opportunities to fulfil their potential. Here, you can be part of something bigger and help to create a new approach that puts the customer at the heart of everything we do.

As Senior Commercial Analyst, you will:

Facilitate the development, production, evaluation and monitoring of all components of the “customer value chain”.
Ensure the accuracy of reports through appropriate checking and validation. You’ll initiate the development and maintenance of said reporting using appropriate tools.
Analyse and interpret complex information in line with business requirements.
Continually identify areas for business improvement and makes recommendations for their implementation.
Communicate to the business on portfolio performance.
Assist in the upkeep of documentation of the relevant NPV models and components of the “value chain”.
Facilitate effective communication within and between your own team and other functions.

As Senior Commercial Analyst, you will have analytical experience from a commercial business where you will have used SAS/SQL/SPSS and will therefore have a good understanding of reporting and writing code queries from scratch. You will be proficient in Excel and comfortable in being proactive and taking the initiative.

As well as the opportunity to join a great team you will also receive a competitive salary, 22 days’ holiday, and a range of other great benefits. We will support you in developing your skills to build the career you want.

As this role involves working in a regulated environment any offer made will be subject to satisfactory background checks including criminal record check, credit check and employment references.

We know that candidates may be put off applying for a job unless they can tick every box. We also know that ‘normal’ office hours aren’t always doable, and while we can’t accommodate every flexible working request we are happy to be asked. So if you are excited about working with us and think you can do much of what we are looking for but aren’t sure if you are 100% there yet… why not apply and see how it goes?
