Here at British Gas we are looking to move the way we serve our customers and meet their energy needs into the 21st century. Our Analysis and Insight Team are part of Smart Installations and Metering, who are responsible for the installing Smart meters for millions of customers throughout the UK by 2020.

Based at our Smart Energy Centre in Leeds (LS12) you will play an active role in using data to drive the insight that will build our chances of success and change how we think about rolling out Smart Meters for our residential customers.

What will you be up to

With millions of customers and thousands of engineers making millions of visits a year, we’re not short of data. Your job will be to use the tools at your disposal (e.g. SAS, Hadoop, R, Excel) to show us how we can get even better and create a compelling case for change.

To succeed, you’ll need to work closely with our operational leaders and subject matter experts, mixing their experiences with your knowledge of the data and your analytical skills. If you’re successful, you’ll be influencing behaviour and decisions at every level in our organisation, from engineers in the field up to our most senior executives.

The Person

Our perfect applicant will have not just technical experience with SQL or SAS but also be someone who can bring new ways of thinking and ideas into our organisation and translate complex analysis for a non technical audience. They’ll be able to prepare large datasets from multiple complex sources for analysis but also use advanced analytical techniques and commercial know-how to really separate the key messages from background noise.

The perfect candidate won’t just be a skilled analyst; they’ll be an adept influencer and a thought leader across our business, as well as a leader and mentor in the Analytics and Insight team.
