Linking Data with Action

  • Develop and deploy API connections (in conjunction with our IT function and Data Architects) to integrate data visualization tools with action tracking tools in order to enable our business to move away from a reliance on XLS and PPT and move towards a culture and capability of running our meetings, activities and decision making directly off live (or near live depending on the data pipeline) intelligence visualization
  • Establish alert systems (by role and dashboard) to trigger action under the guidance of the Performance Growth Manager’s business requirements for branch/dealer level performance zones.

About the Team:

You will be working in a fast-paced and diverse environment, reporting directly to the GM – Operational Performance & Planning. This newly established function is responsible for creating and maintaining the highest operational standards across our business to create greater profitability for our business. Our remit is wide. Across the team, we work with central executive leadership and every Managing Director of our portfolio of automotive brands to deliver programmes and initiatives that have a direct impact on the experiences of our customers and our staff.

The culture within the team is dynamic and entrepreneurial. Across all of our team members we actively foster inquisitiveness, ideas and challenges to the status quo. We know that the operations of ‘traditional automotive’ is shifting and we want new joiners to make their mark and play a big role in how we achieve success in the coming years as part of a multi-billion AED global business. With this in mind, you do not need to have worked in automotive all of your career. We are much more focused on your talents, capabilities and motivation to roll up your sleeves and get things done.

If you think you are up for the challenge, can make a mark and see your ideas through to fruition, then you would be a perfect fit for the team and for our organization.
