SweepSouth is in search of a new full time team member to lead the Business Intelligence and Analytics functions across our company. This position will be available immediately. SweepSouth operates in all major metros in South Africa, and in Nairobi, Kenya, and you will play a part in our ambitious plans to expand into other countries both on the African continent, and further afield. Preference will be given to candidates based in South Africa, but most work can be completed remotely. You may be required to travel on occasion.
The Head of BI and Analytics is an intelligent and driven individual with a strong understanding of complex systems and the elements which underpin their success. You will lead the BI and Analytics functions across the company. While these capabilities have existed at SweepSouth since founding, you are the first specialist to join the team and will need to build on this solid foundation to grow your department. You are expected to exhibit strong leadership potential and organisational skills to manage others as the team and function scales with SweepSouth’s growth.
Your role is responsible for building analytical models and performing regular financial, competitive, performance, and market analyses for the business in order to comprehensively value business opportunities and ensure well-founded strategies are presented to leadership. You will also need to draft regular analysis reports for senior management, business leadership and executives, and relevant stakeholders for purposes of further decision making.
Through a combination of research methods, experiment design, and insightful qualitative and quantitative analyses, you are able to drive consistent business improvement through understanding and surfacing important business insights. You will also help build, maintain and support analytics capabilities across departments, and provide mentorship and training to analysts within other departments where required.
