Technical Business Analyst (Data Quality)

We have an exciting opportunity in the Data Quality Team in the British Gas Services & Solutions division for a Technical Business Analyst who can embrace evolving tools and technologies (including artificial intelligence) to drive improvements in data quality capability across a range of projects.


Data is crucial to providing a first-class service to our customers and managing our business effectively. The Data Quality Team has a proud history of working with colleagues across multiple business units to help influence behaviour and decisions at all levels of the organisation to deliver significant business benefits, matched by ambitious plans to expand its influence into more of the business’s key strategic projects in 2024 and beyond.

As well as ensuring that business-critical data is fit for purpose, the team is also responsible for the purchase of marketing suppression and enhancement data, which is continually assessed to ensure we get maximum value for money.

Key Accountabilities

Provision of robust data quality analysis, subject matter expertise and constructive challenge in order to protect and improve our data assets.
Partner confidently and credibly with internal stakeholders and third party partners to progress commercial data initiatives from concept through to completion, underpinned by the commercial acumen to control costs effectively and drive profitability through these activities.
Streamlining of Data Quality processes to ensure seamless delivery of high quality data feeds using both traditional and innovative techniques (including automation and AI) to drive continuous improvement.
Manage the delivery of any data improvement projects spanning systems, processes and behaviours with a range of virtual business teams, ensuring those projects have the necessary controls in place to avoid a recurrence of known data quality issues and are based on solid business cases.
Collaboration with Privacy, Legal and Procurement colleagues to ensure regulatory compliance (GDPR, PRA, FCA), conduct, risk and audit requirements of all data quality activities.
Strong understanding of data quality management best practice with ability to apply this consistently to all areas of the role in keeping with other Data Quality Team members.
Coach others in the Data Quality Team in a clear and concise manner in areas where your own subject matter expertise so dictates.
Apply British Gas’s values and policies in all day-to-day activities.

We are looking for an individual who has/is:

Strong experience working across a range of data sources with the passion, resourcefulness and strategic thinking to maximise the business’ use of these assets.
Strong technical skills encompassing the ability to understand data from source systems and Hadoop, interrogate this data competently using SQL-based code, build automated reports in PowerBI and communicate the results in a timely manner to the team and its stakeholders.
Highly numerate with the necessary analytical skills to interpret datasets and processes, matched by a keen attention to detail and the pragmatism to avoid succumbing to analysis paralysis.
Passionate about data with the natural curiosity to explore opportunities both independently and as part of virtual team/network dependent on the requirement and bring new ways of thinking to the team.
Ability to plan effectively for delivery, matched by the enthusiasm, tenacity and resilience to get an answer which works, rather than the ideal solution every time.
A strong sense of self-awareness and a focus on personal development.
Excellent prioritisation and organisational skills.
An innovative self-starter who is not afraid to challenge existing ways of working.
Results-oriented and comfortable dealing with occasional imperfection and ambiguity, breaking down difficult problems into smaller, manageable ones.
A clear thinker, with the ability to disseminate key messages from background noise.
