Our client is one of the fastest growing companies in the UK – they are looking for a Modelling and Forecasting Manager to lead a team responsible for the company's asset revaluation and forecasting process (including monthly and quarterly reporting activities and the calculation of enterprise estimated remaining collections). The Manager will also provide analytic leadership for high-value departmental and corporate activities (involving both hands-on analysis as well as management of other analysts and process experts).

The Modelling and Forecasting Manager will be responsible for:

- Analytic leadership for the company’s proprietary asset revaluation and forecasting platform, with an emphasis on continuous improvement, segment-level error analysis, and integration of current and future operational performance indicators
- Direct leadership for two to five business and/or statistical analysts, especially around mentorship and coaching, technical training, and reward and recognition
- Managing the post-purchase forecasting process, including presentations to the Operations groups and executive leadership and active partnership with the Finance department
- Leading the development of tracking tools that gauge current and future asset performance, and ensure that new business initiatives are accurately reflected in forecasting analyses
- Manage high-priority analytic activities of significant importance to both Decision Science and the broader organization
- Active participation in the department’s Modelling Symposium, which includes discussion of theoretical and methodological papers, peer-review of ongoing projects, topical seminars, and ongoing training focused on effective communications, data visualization, and experimental methods

Candidate Profile:

- Extensive experience in a related field, likely progressing from early analyst roles focused on developing and deploying financial and predictive modelling tools and methods to later team leader experience directing analytic staff
- Previous role(s) leading a high-performing team (preferably involving direct management of analytic staff), with demonstrated evidence of coaching, mentorship, and inspirational leadership
- Financial services experience, including familiarity with the logic of credit scoring and the development of marginal economic analyses
- Working knowledge of Base SAS, SAS/STAT, Enterprise Guide, or Enterprise Miner
- A Master’s degree in business or a quantitative science (e.g., economics, math, finance) would be desirable
- Advanced proficiency with MS Office, especially Excel
