Tell us about your role?
I work as a Business Analyst in the Finance Team. I provide analytics on customer and financial data, annual budget and quarterly reforecasts. I provide reports to Senior Leadership team and the Board to provide them with visibility of financial forecasting, current performance and how we are tracking against our financial goals.
What does a typical day look like?
When not recording weekly or monthly data, the typical day could range from reviewing and improving existing reports and reporting tools, to calculating commissions and bonuses for employees, to reforecasting the budget for increased accuracy or additional scenarios.
What do you enjoy most about your role?
The challenge, no day is the same, there is always more information or additional data that can be reported on or other reports that can be improved, not standing still always moving forward.
Without accurate budgeting, forecasting, and analytics it is impossible for a company to have realistic targets and goals for the future. With monthly, weekly, and yearly analytics it allows us to keep track of the improvements the company is making in each area of the business and use this data to help understand what has made the improvement, to help make further improvements in the future.
