Job Description

Who we are
We are Tech Nation, the UK Network for ambitious tech entrepreneurs. Our mission is to empower ambitious tech entrepreneurs to grow faster through knowledge and connections. We want to make the UK the best place to imagine, start and grow a digital business to build an economy fit for the next generation. As a high growth startup ourselves, we are a neutral player sitting right at the heart of the ecosystem of high growth digital businesses, policy-makers and corporations.
We empower tech founders to grow faster through our various growth programmes such as Founders’ Network, Upscale, Future Fifty, and Fintech. But not only that, we also offer end-to-end data, insights, stories & resources, a UK wide community that shares the same entrepreneurial culture, and we are the only approved organisation for the Tech Nation Visa scheme rolled out for exceptional talent.
Our Culture:
We are a small but fast growing, high performance team with high standards and big ambitions. We strive for excellence in everything we do. Our aim is to be transformative and collaborative in our work. We focus on speed, scale, smart resourcefulness and unbounded optimism. We never start with ‘no.’ We’re solution oriented and focus on the outcome and the impact of any project or priority. We’re a curious bunch, creative and a little quirky. We debate things passionately in team meetings and stand-ups. We agree and disagree on how the world should work, but we all agree on making a big difference through our work at Tech Nation. Which is why we love it here and never take it for granted.
Our values are: originality, meaningful collaboration and real impact
The Role
As a Business Intelligence Analyst, you will be responsible for developing a strong understanding of our performance across all our activities, and to develop and implement a repeatable process for monitoring and reporting it. You’ll have the opportunity to work across teams, getting to know all that is going on in the organisation and challenging teams on how they assess and improve their performance.

You will be responsible for creating material reporting on the organisation’s performance to the Exec Team, our Board of Directors and multiple government funding bodies.
You will also be instrumental in deriving and driving the adoption of OKRs, creating forecasts for business cases, using statistical and analytical techniques to understand the key drivers towards achieving GVA and target outputs.
You will have a mentality of continuous improvement and strong analytical and interpersonal skills. You will enjoy working in a delivery focused, agile startup environment. It is a stand alone role so must have the maturity to work independently on a day-to-day basis and have the wisdom to know when to collaborate, delegate and/or escalate.

A Day in the Life of a Tech Nation Business Intelligence Analyst might look something like this:

  • As a Business Intelligence Analyst, you will influence decision-making through the quality and depth of analytical insights and recommendations for improvement. You will be a thought-partner with the COO and Exec team and in particular, you will focus on the following:
  • Performance Reporting and Analysis - You'll be responsible for optimising our performance reporting structure and repeatable process, optimising our KPI dashboard and synthesising performance trends and business performance. We'll be looking for you to identify and highlight opportunities for performance improvement and develop reporting material in a succinct, visual manner.
  • Analytical support for various forums - You'll drive strategic analysis and provide recommendations for ad hoc requests, both from within the team and externally, inputting performance forecasts and targets for business cases through scenario modelling.
  • Building a performance-focused culture - You'll work with delivery teams throughout the lifecycle of programmes to ensure that the right KPIs and targets have been set, making sure that a focus on outcomes and performance are integrated into everything we do.
