The team is also tasked with ensuring the data utilised by Business Services within these systems is correct by validating all incoming data, storing data efficiently and managing outgoing data streams.

The role of the Systems Analyst is to support the Business Systems Team in all these areas, but particularly to focus on improving processes, managing databases and maintaining data integrity. This is an exciting opportunity for an individual with strong programming skills to apply themselves to a growing area of the business and learn more about the Energy Industry.

Key Responsibilities include:

  • Support Data and Systems implementation to ensure the B2B business processes are streamlined
  • Work on innovative solutions for PPA, FiT and Supply process issues
  • Maintain and develop the existing business databases
  • Work closely with the Half Hourly Data Analyst to improve the process of data checking and identify and act upon areas for improvement.
  • Provide regular reports to Business Systems Manager on systems development and the progress that is being made.

We are a challenger in the energy market and this is an energy company like no other. You will work alongside colleagues who put our customers and our values at the heart of everything they do. You’ll be part of a small and friendly team so expect to make new friends and enjoy team activities outside of work.
