Job Number:  12482

Sydney, NSW, AU, 2009

About John Holland

We’re all about transforming lives by finding solutions to complex challenges. We do that by providing leading design, engineering, construction and asset operations, across infrastructure, transport, building and property in Australia and New Zealand.

From the epic, to the intimate, everything we do improves life for someone, somewhere. It gives our business momentum and means we approach things a little differently.

While our competitors talk about what they do, we focus on why we do it. We transform communities to make them easier to move around, more connected and better to live in.

Are you up for the challenge?

We are currently looking for an independent and creative thinker to join our Strategy team in the role of Strategy & Analytics Analyst.

Reporting to the Group Manager Strategy & Business Planning, you will support the development of John Holland’s Group strategy through targeted research, analysis and insight generation.  This role can be based out of either Sydney or Melbourne.

About the Role:

As a key member of the Strategy team, you will support the development of business-critical strategies that require cross-functional coordination and/or advanced analysis. 

This may include:

  • Presenting strategic insights in clear and compelling ways to solve key strategic questions through analysis of quantitive and qualitative information from disparate and wide-ranging sources
  • Supporting the Business Units to assess new and adjacent market sectors, including recommendations made on market entry
  • Supporting the execution of the business planning process which includes working closely with corporate functions and Business Units to:
    • Collect and synthesise inputs;
    • Develop key deliverables (e.g. Board Strategic Plan presentation); and
    • Enhance the business planning process
  • Staying on top of relevant industry, competitor & market trends, and collating/sharing data and insights with key business stakeholders

About You:

This position will require you to hold a Degree qualification in Commerce or equivalent.  You will have previous exposure to corporate strategy within a large corporate, consulting or advisory setting, with construction experience highly regarded. 

We are looking for someone who has the ability to generate the “so-what” from their analyses by using their outstanding analytical and problem-solving skills to distil complex information in a rigorous and efficient manner to provide meaningful advice and solutions.  Strong commercial nous and proven financial and commercial acumen (e.g. P&L familiarity) are essential, as is the ability to measure, analyse and communicate business performance.

Excellent written and verbal communication skills, including presenting to stakeholders at various levels (including senior leadership), coupled with your ability to develop strong relationships across the business, will see you succeed in this role. 

As part of the team, you help us deliver on our promise to transform lives.

Your success is reflected in ours, so we’re committed to being an employer of choice. We pride ourselves on having a diverse and inclusive workplace, as different perspectives and ideas will deliver our long-term success.

We’ll do all we can to help you develop your skills, and make a difference, right from the start. We have a flexible workplace and focus on all aspects of your physical and mental health and safety. We want you to be with us for the long-term, so providing you with rich career experiences and ongoing development is our priority.

Women, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and other minority groups are encouraged to apply.
