Ocado is now truly a technology led global software and robotics platform providing a unique end-to-end solution for online grocery partners on a global scale. Ocado has entered into agreements with global partners to build and operate more than 50 Customer Fulfilment Centres in the coming years.

In spring 2020, we embarked upon a Finance Transformation programme, which will deliver new business processes, new reporting and the implementation of a new enterprise-wide Finance system and Chart of Accounts. Working in partnership with other transformation programmes from across the business, this will significantly improve the capabilities of Finance to support the plans of the company.

The Ocado Finance Transformation programme requires a Data Analyst to join an existing team of analysts to assist with the cleansing and migration of data from an Oracle R12 ERP to an Oracle Fusion platform. The successful candidate will have good technical knowledge of the underlying data architecture of Oracle R12 ERP (tables and columns and the relationships between them) and will be expert in the use of SQL/PL-SQL through tools like SQL Developer.

The Data Analysts are assigned to support different functional areas of the business. This role will support the cleansing and migration of Fixed Assets and projects data, and candidates require a good financial knowledge of both. The role holder will work with the Finance team to understand their requirements and to resolve data issues with practical solutions.

The ideal candidate will have prior experience of data cleanse and migration activity as part of a Finance Transformation programme.

  • Leading on the data cleanse for specific functional areas, e.g. Fixed Assets.
  • Working with Business data owners to improve the quality of their data through cleanse and data enrichment.
  • Identifying the process failures that give rise to inaccurate and incomplete data and advising Business data owners owners how to correct at source.
  • Assisting in the design, planning and implementation of the data migration process from Oracle R12 ERP to Oracle Fusion.

  • Following the integrated programme plan and providing input to PMO activities like the tracking and resolution of Risks, Assumptions, Issues and Dependencies (RAID).
