Footasylum was established in 2005 and now trades from over 70 high street stores across the UK. Footasylum has made a name for itself as one of the leading retailers of fashion street wear and sportswear on the UK high street.
Apart from all that, we are an awesome place to work. We are passionate about retail, innovation and we are looking for the best talent to help us drive our company to the next stage.
We are looking for a strategic leader to take our transformation to a data driven company to the next level. The role will have exposure to AI through our partnership with leading Peak.AI, leading specialists in AI and ML. We have already made great strides into data driven decisions with the successful implementation of our online and offline loyalty scheme, UNLCKD, and this role will capitalise on the great work the team has already completed.
You will own the backlog of work for the data team, which is comprised of development and analyst roles. You do not need a technical background as your responsibility is to clearly define the strategy needed to allow teams access to essential data that they need to make decisions, then create and manage the backlog of the work your team to deliver.
If you had been leading a team of analysts, working as part of commercial insights or have responsibility for web analytics, then this would be the next step in your career development. You will be a great people person who can instil the need for data driven results across the whole business.
You are the kind of person that understands that business agility is underpinned by an excellent data strategy. Your top priority has always been to enable businesses to have access to the information they require to make decisions quickly in an ever changing and competitive retail market. You’ve coached and mentored data teams and have treated data as a competency across businesses. You are not afraid to try new techniques based on studying how other companies have managed and manipulated business intelligence at scale. You are constantly learning and sharing knowledge with others.
Seeing people copy and paste data into Excel to create reports gives you a cold sweat. You strive to minimise the amount of time needed to get people the right and relevant information. You make sure people don’t bring opinion to a data fight!
