Who we are

Are you a savvy Data Analytics professional? PwC’s Operate is investing in the further expansion of its managed services offering and seeking to recruit Data Analysts who can provide our clients with enhanced insight across a breadth of regulatory or compliance focussed issues.

Our Data and Analytics colleagues work with clients through improved insight from Artificial Intelligence and advanced analytics / data visualisation, and by establishing the right controls, processes and structures to ensure that decisions are based on accurate information. In addition, we assure that information and data provided to regulators and third parties is accurate, complete and trustworthy.

Who we are looking for

We are looking for candidates who have experience using various data analysis techniques to understand large volumes of data. You will be a strong team player with a focus on quality, attention to detail with excellent communication and written skills.

About the role

We support our clients with a range of services such as:

  • Designing and developing dashboards, visualisations and metrics to improve understanding of business processes, identify potential weaknesses and provide operational resilience
  • Assessing and optimising data governance processes and operations in order to meet data protection requirements
  • Designing automated and data-driven controls to better manage and protect data assets
  • Data Discovery, Data Flow mapping, Data and Process Analysis for Remediation Planning
  • Validating and testing data and reports submitted to regulatory bodies
Essential Skills
  • Strong VBA and SQL skills with respect to data profiling and data discovery as well as high proficiency in MS Excel
  • Demonstrable experience undertaking deep dive analysis and querying using SQL
  • Demonstrable experience communicating conclusions through writing clear documentation or through verbal communication to both business and IT users
  • Excellent attention to detail and ability to grasp underlying complexities in data
  • Data modelling and visualisation experience.
Desirable criteria
  • Knowledge of financial markets, ratings and financial data (significant exposure is a plus, but not required)
  • A technical background in Mathematics, Computer Science, Data Analytics or similar
The role will be based in Belfast, however as a result of the wide variety of clients and projects, you may be asked to work in other locations within the UK and beyond, sometimes at short notice and sometimes over lengthy periods of time. Your desire and ability to do this will be discussed as part of the recruitment process. Candidates who are unable or do not wish to work on projects in other locations will still be considered.



Our Deals business is an exciting, fast-paced and an ever-growing business that focuses on deals and crisis situations for our clients. Collectively, we deal with the types of situations you hear about regularly in the news and we provide support, insight and analysis to the management, shareholders and financiers of business.
