A Financial Data Analyst with strong statistical modelling skills (ideally SAS) is required by a leading financial services organisation based in Coventry to assist in the production and detailed analysis of data thus supporting decision making and furthering understanding of customer behaviour.

A key member of a growing team, you will rebuild processes and models within the Finance and Treasury departments (e.g. the mortgage pricing model), driving greater efficiency and stronger governance. You will help design new statistical models to provide greater insight into business performance, acting as a Subject Matter Expert for model building within the department. In addition, you will undertake more complicated data mining requirements and answer ad hoc data queries from across the business. You will also provide value added analysis to help understand key business metrics and drivers (e.g. customer behaviour).

Educated to at least degree level in a quantitative subject with statistical requirements (e.g. Maths, Statistics, Economics, Biology, Physics etc.) you will have statistical modelling experience (either within a work environment or during your degree). A good working knowledge of SAS is highly advantageous; although candidates with really strong SQL skills gained in a commercial setting and knowledge of other statistical packages (e.g. R, Matlab, Python, WPS, SPSS etc.) will also be considered. A willingness to study towards an accounting qualification (e.g. CIMA) is preferred (and supported) although this is not essential
