What do you believe are the top five stand out characteristics of an analyst?

  • Excellent logical skills.
  • Ability to effectively communicate.
  • Passionate about data.
  • Understand the role data has to businesses making commercial decisions.
  • We will take someone with more passion than skills.

Can you please discuss the barriers of recruiting in your industry?
Barriers for Footasylum recruiting in this space only ever circle around the tech stack we use. We have a varied tech stack and as we are a retail brand with multiple areas, we ideally want people with as much of this as possible. We have excellent retention rates in this area and offer our employees the ability to learn and develop new skills.
