Job Description

About us
With over 16,000 people worldwide, we make a huge investment in everyone, offering great career development opportunities. Our people are at the heart of everything we do and we offer a fast-paced environment where we have fun, celebrate success and give you all the tools you’ll need to be your best self. It’s not just our colleagues we look after – we’ve got a responsibility to our customers too and we work hard on our ambition that nobody is harmed by gambling.

Your role in the team
We have created a new Strategy & Planning function within our Technology department.  The objective is to drive the continuous improvement of processes within a best in class Enterprise Agile Governance function for Global Technology.

As Strategy and Reporting Report Analyst, you’ll work closely with our Central Portfolio Manager to develop portfolio reporting capabilities.  You’ll become a subject matter expert on reporting tools, providing recommendations on the development of the tool as well as working with stakeholders across our business to improve the quality and efficiency of reporting. You’ll also support ad hoc analysis requests, providing strategic actionable insights.

We’re looking for somebody to be an advocate for best practise, to identify gaps in tools and processes and to drive improvement measures to address them.    

Skills needed
You will need to be highly analytical with advanced skills in Excel and presenting data in an insightful, informative and actionable way.  Experience in using SharePoint and Jira would also be desirable.

Problem solving and decision making skills are key as well as being a strong team player with a natural flair for building relationships across our global business

What we offer
We’ll welcome you on-board with 25 days holiday (not to mention 8 bank holidays and an extra day for your birthday), a rewarding bonus scheme, healthcare, an attractive pension package, healthy gym discounts and a staff benefits scheme. Plus, our season ticket loan and handy Metro Card loan will save you money getting to work and getting around town. And if you see the journey to work as part of your fitness regime, you’ll just love our Cycle to Work scheme.

William Hill in Leeds

Right in the middle of the creative heart of the UK sit both of our Leeds offices. Leeds itself is a buzzy, busy place to work and live. A hub for tech, digital and gaming companies – there’s also five universities right on our doorstep. And away from work, we’re in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales and of course have got a competitive sports scene with Leeds United and Yorkshire Cricket and Rugby just up the road in Headingly.
