Hints & tips from the recruiter

Graduate Resourcing Manager Darren shares his best advice for those thinking about applying to Severn Trent. To watch the full Gradcracker/Severn Trent webinar click here.

Want to do the best work of your life? Playing your part in making a big difference to the environment and communities we serve? Our people make Severn Trent a truly exciting and inclusive place to work – a place where you can be yourself and let your skills shine.

Our purpose is taking care of life’s essentials, but we’re also big on making a difference, not just because we should but because we care.

An exciting opportunity has arisen in the Central Planning and Insight team as we look to strengthen our capabilities and build upon the benefits derived from an even more Customer focused Insight delivery strategy. We currently have several fantastic opportunities for Business Insight Analysts to join our team for a 9 month placement beginning 26th September in both Coventry and Derby. 

The objective of the Business Insight Analyst is to be an expert in utilising data to empower the business to make the right decisions and improve performance.  The role will primarily support the existing Data and Insight experts within WPO/Central Planning to provide sufficient analytical horsepower with which to extract valuable Insights for the business to consume. 

This role builds upon existing performance monitoring reporting, to discover patterns and trends in the data that are not immediately obvious and to translate the findings into compelling narrative, through visualisation and storytelling

Let's tell you more

In this role you will utilise existing reporting and models, through the innovative use of data manipulation and perform a range of analyses. These will include the design, creation and implementation of reports and dashboards, in BI tools such as PowerBI, in addition to building, developing and communicating insight to drive key business actions. 

Building upon the technical skills you have, this role offers you the opportunity to showcase your talents across a range of high priority Business requirements, within an environment that is built to support your development.

What we're looking for

We’d love to hear from you if you have an interest in Data or Business Analysis. This opportunity would suit you if you have experience in analytical problem solving, proactive thinking and data translation. 

We are looking for individuals with high levels of attention to detail but a good understanding of how the data relates to the bigger picture. 

You will have an ability to identify opportunities to drive progress and deliver a faster and better service with a curious, problem-solving mindset. If you have great communication skills and networking ability, with the confidence to effectively communicate to operational and business stakeholders then we want to hear from you! 

Of course, it’s important that we attract the right skill sets, and those with the right experience but we value character, positivity and a caring attitude in equal weight.

We welcome people from all walks of life and celebrate individuality as we know diverse minds, experiences and backgrounds help us to learn and better serve our communities. We employ thousands of people from across our community who really care about what they do. Because that is how we do what we do.

And when it comes to inclusion, we’re making sure we keep up the progress with our wonderful working groups – LGBTQ+, Women in Operations & STEM, Disability and Ethnicity; who help us do just that.

We do more because we care.

How we'll reward and care for you in return

  • Salary £18,510
  • Opportunity to kickstart your professional development through our brand new Academy
  • You’ll be supported with a mentor during your time in this role to make sure you get the very best learning experience that will set you up for a bright future!

Let's go

Apply now to build an amazing career and be part of a brilliant team. We can’t wait to hear from you. Applications will close at midnight 17th July.

Please note we will be looking to host assessments for this role 26th, 27th July 2022. We will aim to let you know if you have been selected for the final assessment by Wednesday 20th July.
