The opportunity

We are looking for a positive, flexible self-starter to join our team as a Senior Analyst. This is an exciting opportunity to play a leading role in delivering our analysis capability as an integral part of a small, agile and growing business.

Our team of analysts, consultants and Defence SMEs work closely with our customers to deliver high-impact services and solutions. Data science and operational analysis are a key part of Catalyze’s capability. We are growing this capability and are looking for a highly motivated and capable Senior Analyst.

As Senior Analyst your role will include:

  • Using operational analysis approaches to deliver impactful insights to our clients.
  • Taking a consultative approach to your work, understanding how your work contributes to delivering a great result for our clients.

  • Delivering high quality analysis and outputs.
  • Taking a leading role in the day-to-day delivery of projects, working closely with our clients and our team of consultants and analysts.
  • Developing strong relationships with the wider Catalyze team.

Our UK office is based just outside Winchester. The role will require a blend of working from our office, occasional travel to client sites, and working from home. We are happy to consider flexible working arrangements based on individual circumstances.
