Job Description

As Commercial Finance Insight Analyst, you’ll provide high quality, actionable insight to support our Consumer business. You’ll develop strong relationships with business stakeholders at all levels whilst deep diving into performance drawing on your network within other departments such as Data Science, Marketing and Analytics. Our department is ever evolving, and so you will play an important role in enabling a culture of continuous improvement working closely with the Data team to devise innovative ways to access insight.

  • Weekly and monthly performance reporting, including communication/presentation of key findings, spotting opportunities to improve, enrich and automate
  • Supporting the business with advice, insight and financial modelling including business plans, post initiative analysis and the generation of new ideas
  • Driving the development of Commercial finance function, taking into consideration new technologies, advising on new ways of working, and taking advantage of continuous improvements in data availability
  • Investigating and assisting in the development of new commercial opportunities to drive sales, new products, reduce cost, etc
  • Gathering external and internal market information to support across the breadth of the business – new product initiatives, performance marketing and customer
  • Collaborating cross functionally on a wide range of projects
  • Data analysis and dashboard creation using SQL and Tableau

This is a truly career defining role for someone passionate about the commercial side of Finance and Analytics looking for an opportunity to play an important part in a growing, highly rated, team. In return for your hard work, we’ll provide you with lots of opportunity for progression and, should you choose, we will support you in studying for further qualifications as you play your part in disrupting and defining a product that is changing the way we travel and inspiring millions people all over the world to make more environmentally sustainable travel choices every day.


We’re looking for creative big thinkers with small egos to achieve our ambitious plans. You’ll bring experience in a commercial or analytical role, and demonstrate a proactive, can-do attitude. We’d prefer you to have worked within a digital, e-commerce, technology or retail environment but we can flex on this given your ability to work with pace and energy within a growth environment.

A team player with a ‘roll your sleeves up’ attitude, you’ll be used to thinking laterally to solve problems and challenges, and will have a passion for making meaning out of data. Similarly, it’s vital that you bring an innate ability to distil and communicate results of complex analysis clearly and effectively to all levels of the business.

Working independently within tight deadlines, you’ll have the ability to think creatively to identify and enhance both commercial and customer-oriented opportunities. You’ll bring experience of modelling and forecasting and an understanding of broader analytical techniques, ideally you'll have experience with SQL, excel and visualisation tools.
