Job Description

At AstraZeneca we’re dedicated to being a Great Place to Work. Where you are empowered to push the boundaries of science and unleash your entrepreneurial spirit. There’s no better place to make a difference to medicine, patients and society. An inclusive culture that champions diversity and collaboration. Always committed to lifelong learning, growth and development.

So if you thrive on intellectually stimulating work where you can apply expertise and develop new skills, then this is the place for you.

Digital, data and Analytics is a core pillar of our 2025 HR Strategy and we are transforming our Workforce Data & Analytics function to deliver on this strategy. A core component is to enhance the way we use technology to surface and deliver insights, in order to increase business performance and ensure AstraZeneca is a great place to work. As a Data Analyst with specialist knowledge in workforce data & integration, you’ll have the rare opportunity to use your expertise to influence the strategy and operational direction of a global biopharmaceutical FTSE 100 company.


Main duties and responsibilities

It’s a time of rapid change at AstraZeneca as we pursue market leadership in our core therapeutic areas. You can expect considerable visibility, as you partner with the People Services function to identify and prioritise critical data & integration requirements for the onboarding or migration of any acquisition or merger, and lead in delivering these projects, with the objective of supporting our drive to use data to drive workforce decisions and workforce planning. With a mix of business partnering, technical leadership and the delivery of high-quality global data outputs, the role also offers a firm platform to challenge and enhance your development within a global organisation.
You’ll partner with the reporting and people services teams, our customers, external vendors and our IT partners to ensure that our people data assets provides a world-class foundation for delivering quality data, drive business value and ensure we maximise the value of our existing technology platforms. This is a critical activity in delivering our Digital, Data and Analytics vision and strategy.
You’ll be working independently as well as in matrixed teams, providing leadership and defining collaborative data work packages, adapting to ambiguity alongside other members of the team. If you have a strong aptitude for workforce data and logic problem solving, then this is the role for you.

  • A deep understanding of the workforce data landscape

  • Experienced in data cleansing, migration and integrations from different HRIS platforms (preferable to Workday)

  • Experience and interest in advancing data capability (preferably in Workday)

  • Ability to demonstrate initiative and a strong customer orientation

  • Technical ability to continuously improve utilisation of our tools and technologies, to support our journey towards seamless data management

  • Comfortable working with different teams, across both HR and the business

  • Strong business acumen, articulate, able to influence at senior levels

  • Supporting and challenging the wider AstraZeneca community as we move towards a more data-driven culture

  • Experience in defining data models to drive HR process, reporting & analytic needs
