What the role about?

Footballco is looking for an Analytics Reporting Manager/Analyst.

You will be part of a team responsible for delivering accurate and timely data, analysis and insights to help the business achieve its ambitious goals. This is a global role covering all markets and brands, supporting stakeholders from across the business (Leadership, Editorial, Product, Commercial etc).

The ideal candidate will combine great stakeholder management skills with a critical eye for accuracy and broad experience of digital analytics from tracking deployment to data storytelling. They should also be comfortable working collaboratively across different departments and stakeholders in a fast-paced environment.

Our ambition is to make Footballco brands the most loved publishers in sport. We want to build deep relationships with people; to be the first app they check in the morning, and the last IG page they scroll at night.

Your mission is to make this vision a reality.

This position is based in our Leeds office, but would consider other locations or remote working for the right person too. We offer competitive compensation and a bonus scheme. You will report into the Head of Analytics Reporting, Footballco.

Here's what you will be doing:

● Analysis problem solving - analysing problems and analysing data to help the business achieve its goals
● Measurement - using digital tools to capture key performance data points across our ecosystem
● Reporting - contributing to critical business reports for everyone from company leadership to operational teams
● Projects - define, contribute to and lead projects across the business
● Big data - working closely with data engineers and scientists
● Communication - delivering high quality reports, dashboards, presentations and spreadsheets
● Partnership - collaborating with colleagues across the business - editorial, digital, commercial etc…
● Ad-hoc requests - responding to time critical requests as they come in
● Training - both personal development and training others
● Evangelism - championing the use of data across the business

It would be great if you already have experience doing this:

● Analysis - approach and attention to detail is more important than tools here, but if you know your way around a spreadsheet then that is a good starting point. If you know of sql then even better.
● Digital analytics - using analytics tools e.g. Google Analytics, SQL
● Digital measurement - appreciation or use of tags on sites e.g. via Google Tag Manager
● Deliverables - can you create a clear and concise report / dashboard / presentation. Can you present it to others so they understand the key messages?
● Digital publishing - visited a website? That a good start. Got your own blog or dabbled with html and css etc, even better.
● Teamwork - can you work well in a team?
● Previous exposure to sports, football and digital media is preferred.
