use the power of data to shape our business

Buying analyst intern

We’re looking for an amazing buying analyst to join us in shaping our fast-growing retail business. You’ll get to analyse and make an impact on multiple areas including buying, content, marketing, eCommerce, customer care, finance, and brand, as well as focusing on a specific area, depending on your interests and our business needs. Analytics in a start-up is a very different animal to analytics in a big company. You’ll be breaking new ground, analysing things that no one has analysed before, and driving through your recommendations into actions; actions that can be implemented to change the business for the better.

You’re going to be on a steep learning curve. At a start-up, there’s no data to start with, so it needs to be created first. The difference between a good analyst and a brilliant one is, unfortunately, data input and the little details – it needs to be “right right”, not just “right”. Sometimes you'll feel like smashing the screen, but you’re the kind of person who plows through, because the feeling of getting it “right right” is amazing.

The challenges don’t stop there though. We’re in a stage in our growth where everyone is incredibly busy, so getting people to change the way they do things is tough. This is where a lot of analysts fail, but not you. You understand that doing great analysis, summarising it and then pushing and pushing and pushing is the only way to get people to pay attention. You’ve got so much gumption and your output is so good that you have no problems in pushing through big changes. And that means you’ll have a direct impact in how we operate and a chance to make your mark in a fast-growing retail business.

The difference between a good analyst and a brilliant one is data input and the little details - it needs to be "right right", not just “right”
