Analytic Consultant Job Description
Consultants function at the intersection of CPG vendor and Target business initiatives, taking extremely granular data and weaving them into actionable insights using RSi?s software applications. Our customer base engages us to demonstrate return on investment, and the consultant role is responsible for all phases of this aspect of the engagement, from value mapping to tracking against objectives. This role can bring high visibility within some of the world?s top consumer products companies, and highly competent, motivated individuals should apply.
Consultants are indispensable members of the Value Creation team, which manages RSi?s most strategic customers. They are dedicated resources who may or may not be the sole staff on an account.

Users range from supply chain/operations to sales/category management, and in some instances, in store execution teams. Monitor utilization and develop strategies to keep the user base engaged. As resourced, deliver in-person and web-based training and support.
Value Creation. Work with customer teams to identify their key business needs and develop reporting and processes that assist our customers with meeting their goals. Measure the return on investment through these initiatives.
Best Practice Sharing. Customer success stories are our biggest asset. Applying a win across retailers or channels is a proven way to drive value. Ensure that best practices are cross-pollinated within the customer teams through the delivery of webinars, write ups or other means at the discretion of you and your customer.
Engage Cross-Functionally. Drive customer initiatives through cross functional coordination with Channel Management, Engineering, Product Management, Production Operations and Sales.

Superior presentation skills and experience communicating (both oral and written) to all levels throughout an organization, from senior executives to front-line analysts.
Proficiency in Excel or other data analysis/mining software is a must; familiarity with Access valued.
Proven project management skills and a track record of delivering high quality results in a timely manner.
Excellent people skills and ability to build strong relationships with paying customers.
