Business Analyst – Portfolio & Capacity Management
At AstraZeneca, we turn ideas into life changing medicines. Working here means being entrepreneurial, thinking big and working together to make the impossible a reality.
The Global Business Planning and Operations (BPO) Department is an integral group within Development Operations (Dev Ops). It consists of Strategic Planning, Business Operations, Portfolio & Capacity Management and Clinical Metrics. We provide best in class portfolio and capacity management which enables informed business decisions and maximises portfolio delivery.
The purpose of the Business Analyst role is principally to drive decision making by building connections between people and information. This enables tactical and strategic actions and decision making at all levels across the function and beyond. This is an exciting time for AstraZeneca and for Development operations as we move towards a new era in big data and digitalisation. There is a great opportunity for this role to be at the fore front of moving portfolio and capacity management into the digital space and using new technologies to achieve this.
Primary responsibilities will be centred around balancing the demands of the Portfolio & Capacity, as you perform analyses of the balance between Capacity & Demand within and across TA’s (Oncology and Biopharmaceuticals). The insights provided will enable refinement of demand algorithms and options/proposals for capacity balancing. You will also influence the direction our Portfolio Management by identifying key trends/analysis, highlighting implications and opportunities for improved processes and outputs.
There will also be scope for engagement with Business initiatives, including improvement projects (i.e., reorganisation or redesign.) And you'll also be involved in Benchmarking activities.
