Analyst

Job description

Joining the analytical team at ORH will enable you to apply your technical and problem-solving skills to real-world issues. Providing data-oriented evidence to our consultants, you will be directly influencing the decision-making at emergency services around the world. We are looking for a numerate graduate with a desire to make a difference within this critical and ever-changing sector.

The Analyst position will involve: understanding and analysing large data sets on high profile public projects; specifying data needs and delivering accurate, meaningful analysis; and working with ORH consultants to model options for improved service delivery.

The work is project-oriented and mostly office-based, although opportunities will arise for visiting clients with ORH consultants. Experience will be gained of the complete consultancy process with the potential to progress within the company and follow your own interests.

Although we are expanding, the company is relatively small, therefore making the right appointment is key. We are offering a flexible start date to encourage applications from a range of candidates.

What we are looking for

We are seeking a graduate with a strong numerate background. Current employees at ORH include graduates in maths, geography, operational research (OR), physics and management science.

Proficiency in the use of Excel is essential; experience in large database manipulation would be an advantage (Access or SQL), as would an understanding of GIS. There are also opportunities to use ORH’s in-house simulation and optimisation modelling software.

Day-to-day work will involve many complex studies, requiring you to carefully manage your own time, but there is also a strong emphasis on working closely together. The ability to assess your own work and to communicate well with colleagues and customers is also important for this role.
