Job Introduction

We have introduced an exciting new role within our Resource Optimisation Team here at our Head Office in Skipton. As a Capacity Planning Analyst you will support our customer proposition by ensuring service levels are met across our customer contact teams by leading the way with new tools and methods of planning.  You will need to be able to bring the numbers to life for your key stakeholders to enable decision making on the size and structure of the operation. 

As a forward thinker, you will be responsible for predicting short and long term demands as well as analysing organisational capacity to ensure we are able to meet our customers’ needs and expectations.

Main Responsibilities

With the confidence to work with large and complex business areas, you will help various departments prepare for strategic changes and make sure they have the right people in place. You will produce short, medium and long term capacity plans by analysing trends and help stakeholders identify opportunities and potential risks and how these can be utilised/prevented.

Part of the role is to analyse performance against our key performance and Service Level objectives, alongside forecasting and productivity data to understand and recommend changes to improve Service Level achievement. 

With an overall focus on providing excellent customer service in line with efficiency and productivity, you will deliver robust and reliable MI plans to Skipton Direct and the wider business so that there is availability for our customers to interact with us across various channels.

Ideal Candidate

You will be naturally inquisitive and able to use advanced Excel data to adopt a statistical approach to your work. This will also cover multi-channel analysis including calls, emails, social media and chat interactions, so a strong customer focus is essential.

You will thrive on finding solutions and have experience with forecasting/capacity planning through the use of inbound and outbound technologies, such as (but not limited to) NICE IEX, ININ and Genesys. You will be adaptable to working to tight deadlines and show resilience in your desire to improve the Society’s service delivery.

Stakeholder management is a key part of this role and you will enjoy building relationships, being a strategic influencer and challenging where we can do things differently.

A strong background in a similar position, with experience of creating, monitoring and controlling resource plans is key.
