The Revenue Growth team specifically focusses on the Consumer Goods market. We are looking for candidates at all levels of experience with an interest in Revenue Growth Management to join us, working in fast-paced teams with other highly talented, fun and motivated colleagues.

As part of the delivery team, you will focus on the implementation of large-scale analytics projects and work with exceptional advisory and product teams who are developing ground breaking Revenue Growth Management propositions.

You will be part of the following wider group within our Consulting portfolio offerings:

Strategy, Analytics and M&A

How do you make intelligent, future-proof decisions in a world where change is the one constant? That's exactly what you'll help our clients to do. You'll build trusted relationships with business stakeholders - and use the most exciting new technologies available - to create data-driven programmes that transform their organisations. Your advice will help clients position their organisations to succeed in an ever-evolving marketplace.

Your role

As a Senior Data Scientist you will have experience within Predictive and/or Optimisation analytics. You will combine both technical and business knowledge in order to uncover the answers to major questions that help organizations make objective/predictive decisions.

We're looking for people who are future leaders and bring out the best in others, are brilliant listeners and can grow business without compromising standards, integrity or culture.

Your role will focus on providing expertise in the delivery of a technical product solution. You'll have responsibilities to:

  • Design dashboards to showcase statistical results
  • Explain complex statistical techniques in understandable terms and justify methods
  • Work effectively in diverse teams within an inclusive team culture where people are recognised for their contribution

Your work, your choice

At Deloitte we believe the best impact is the value we add, not the hours we sit at our desk. We carefully consider agile ways of working, both formal and informal, that allow for the best impact for our people and our clients. Please speak to your recruiter about the working pattern that works best for you.

Location: Your home office will be London, but this role provides lots of opportunity for remote working and travel in the UK and overseas (where possible)

Work pattern: This is a permanent opportunity. The role will be worked on a full-time basis.  Our team members work a variety of agile working patterns. Tell us what arrangement works for you and we'll try to accommodate.

We are looking for candidates with technical and business focused skills, who can articulate the outcomes and value of their work, and have experience across the following:

Essential:

  • Experience with data scripting languages (e.g. SQL, Python, R etc.) or statistical/mathematical software (e.g. R, SAS, or Matlab)
  • Experience in producing models and analytics for business applications
  • Breadth of experience in standard machine-learning and statistical modelling tools and techniques (e.g. random forests, gradient-boosted regression, LASSO, logistic regression)
  • Experience in programming in R, Python, Scala or similar languages and maintaining code repositories in git
  • Strong quantitative modelling, statistical analysis skills and problem-solving skills.
  • Experience collaborating with software development teams, other data scientists, business intelligence or other technical roles
  • Excellent communication including direct correspondence with senior leadership
  • Demonstrable track record dealing well with ambiguity, prioritizing needs, and delivering results in an agile, dynamic environment

Desirable:

  • Experience with data visualization and presentation, turning complex analysis into insight

Your service line: Consulting

Our people and the way we work are the two things that set us apart in the consulting universe. For us, collaboration is fundamental to success, along with an unrivalled depth and breadth of expertise. We work closely with our clients and each other, at every stage of every project, solving our clients' trickiest problems with a mix of knowledge, creativity and intellectual rigour. A hugely diverse range of clients relies on us to deliver the kind of change that adds genuine, lasting value to their business.

Personal independence

Regulation and controls are standard practice in our industry and Deloitte is no exception. These controls provide important legal protection for both you and the firm. We are subject to a number of audit regulations, one of which requires that certain colleagues abide by specific personal independence constraints. This can mean that you and your "Immediate Family Members" are not permitted to hold certain financial interests (shares, funds, bonds etc.) with audit clients of the firm.  The recruitment team will provide further detail as you progress through the recruitment process.
