Job Description

Data Analytics Manager

Description

At Pearson, we’re committed to a world that’s always learning and to our talented team who makes it all possible. From bringing lectures vividly to life to turning textbooks into laptop lessons, we are always re-examining the way people learn best, whether it’s one child in our own backyard or an education community across the globe. We are bold thinkers and standout innovators who motivate each other to explore new frontiers in an environment that supports and inspires us to always be better. By pushing the boundaries of technology — and each other to surpass these boundaries — we create seeds of learning that become the catalyst for the world’s innovations, personal and global, large and small.

Today, much of our digital frontier is delivered via the public cloud and for us to continue to succeed in this space we need ever better, accurate, and timely management information. As a result, our Technology Operations team is now recruiting for a Data Analytics Manager to help develop a global cloud data and analytics strategy, guide deployment of new reporting capabilities and encourage usage and adoption of these tools across our global business community.

Pearson is an equal opportunities employer. We do not discriminate against employees or job applicants and select the best person for each job based on relevant skills and experience.

We are also committed to building an accurate picture of the make-up of the workforce and encouraging equality and diversity.

The information you provide will stay confidential, and be stored securely. It will not be seen by those involved in making decisions as part of the recruitment process.

What you’ll need to succeed in this role:

  • an extraordinary enthusiasm for the cloud, data analytics and data visualisation;
  • an excellent understanding of cloud best practices, reporting methodologies and analytics strategies;
  • experience in managing and driving technical teams and managing customer expectations
  • a sound technical understanding of data architecture (warehousing, ETL etc), visualisation tools (such as Tableau) and techniques used to tell a rich, business orientated story;
  • a track record in eliciting requirements from stakeholders and rapid solutioning;
  • a flexible leadership style with an ability to influence and drive where necessary;
  • a keen analytical mind and an eye for ongoing improvement - including experience building and implementing processes where improvements were needed from the ground up;
  • a love of solving problems, thinking outside the box and stepping outside your comfort zone to the benefit of the wider team;
  • some time zone flexibility and experience working in a globally distributed organisation;
  • some fluency in Agile methodologies and ways of working;
  • and of course a passion for people, teaching and sharing, because that’s what we have.
  • Experience of working in an Agile environment is desirable as are further Data Engineering qualifications
