Job Description: We're looking for an experienced Planning Analytics Consultant to join our team. As one of the leading Cognos Business Partners in the UK, the role sits within our fast expanding consultancy practice.

Barrachd (part of Capita plc) is a Data Transformation and Analytics firm. Our main offices are in London and Edinburgh but our team works across the UK, which means it doesn't matter where you are based! We work with many well-known blue chip clients, universities, and government bodies across multiple sectors, and the key to our success is delivering great analytical solutions that offer real business benefits.

Barrachd means "more". And that's exactly what we deliver... More insight, more understanding, more answers. And that's why we're experiencing an exciting period of growth. To support our growth, we are looking for a Planning Analytics/TM1 consultant to join our team - which is 60 strong.... and growing fast.

The role requires substantial experience in IBM Cognos TM1 / Planning Analytics. Ideally you'll have a consulting background, although this isn't vital. You should have significant stakeholder management expertise and be highly adept at interfacing with the business and understanding the commercial objectives of their work. You must also be able to work on your own without supervision and be willing to travel to different customer sites when required. And your excellent communication skills mean you can adapt where needed to both technical and business people.

Responsibilities Include:

· Capturing and understanding client business requirements.

· Designing and implementing IBM Planning Analytics Solutions.

· Producing solution design documentation.

· Supporting the sales team with demonstrations.

· Building and maintaining good customer relationships.

Favoured Skills:

· An accountancy or IT background

· Experience in other IBM products

· Database Skills: Oracle, SQL Server

· Knowledge of ETL and data integration

· Good experience and understanding of Business Financial Processes

· Ability to self-manage and work without direct supervision on customer sites

· Multiple end to end implementations

Essential Requirements:

· Cognos TM1, as well as Planning Analytics experience with PAX and PAW

· Valid UK Driving Licence

· This is a UK wide role, so a willingness to travel is essential

At least one end to end implementation cycle
