Application Deadline

Do you see the big picture clearly, even in an unclear and ever-changing world? Do you want to work with large and complex data sets to play a key role in the future of William Hill? If so, we have a number of opportunities in our Data Science and Advanced Analytics Team ,working with the latest technology at an exciting time in our digital transformation.

About us

Working with us you’ll be at heart of the technological revolution of one the world’s most trusted betting and gaming companies. We deal with projects ranging from widgets, desktop or mobile casinos and betting sites… just to name a few. We process 500 online Sportsbook bets per second each Saturday, that’s the same as orders processed by Amazon UK, on its busiest day of the year. We deal with more than 20 million users and 160 terabytes of data daily. Impressed? You can be sure there are many more challenges waiting for you.

Your role in the team

Here at William Hill, we're building a market leading Econometrics team and we're searching for innovative and creative professionals, willing to push the boundaries of econometrics, to be part of the team. As one of three Econometricians joining our team, you will support our Econometrics management team in delivering our best in class internal MMM team, through mastering the modelling and MMM outputs required to build a first-class Econometric consultancy.

Using your knowledge of data and analytics, and how both are applied, you will work with the team to solve real world problems such as where and how do I spend my marketing budget, what is the direct and indirect of Corona virus on our business and how can I influence efficient investment decisions in 2021?

You'll collaborate with stakeholders across William Hill UK and third-party suppliers, to provide robust and scalable MMM analytical solutions that result in timely, value add recommendations, designed to positively impact our customers and business on a continual basis.

You'll take stock of current ways of working and methods of providing insightful analysis, both internally and externally. You’ll strive to be a key team player in delivering our roadmap geared to build a best-in-class internal MMM capability and look to grow and develop along our exciting and rewarding journey.

In this role, you'll work closely with other Econometricians, Business Intelligence and Analytics, Data Engineering, stakeholders across the UK product portfolio in a true matrix style, agile organisation.

Your responsibilities will include:

  • Completion and delivery of the models, ensuring results are delivered on time and meeting the high standards set throughout the team.
  • Identifying, scoping, proposing and owning aspects of the project delivery to ensure all fundamental questions are correctly addressed for those Econometric deliverables.
  • Depending on your experience, you can expect a degree of involvement in driving Marketing efficiency and improvements, through optimisation and scenario planning.
  • Working alongside stakeholders to support the integration of findings in business decisions, whilst collaborating with other analytical approaches across the business, to maximise ROI across our media mix, product and promotions.

Skills needed

An ambitious, driven professional, you'll be passionate about the numbers and have a natural flair for applying yourself to learn new technologies and applications to analyse and interpret the data. You thrive in a fast-paced and evolving environment and enjoy taking a creative approach and exploring new ways of working.

You're a great communicator and can translate complex information into simple, non-technical terms, to engage and inspire your audience, sharing the vision and bringing them on the journey. The models and insight you create can be easily understood and applied effectively to make key business decisions.

You'll have a curious mind and a real talent for asking the right questions. Pro-active, inquisitive and flexible in your approach, you have excellent attention to detail and the ability to work to multiple and challenging deadlines. You're a team player with strong communication and interpersonal skills, and of course you're highly organised and driven by producing high quality work with a healthy respect for quality and standards.

You will be degree educated in a relevant numerate discipline such as Economics, Econometrics, Math’s, or Statistics at undergraduate or postgraduate level. Whilst some experience of MMM would be fantastic, we pride ourselves on offering career growth and progression and significant development opportunities and we welcome applications from degree level up to several years of relevant experience.

You will have:

  • An understanding or knowledge of building Time Series Econometric models and the skills to apply them.
  • Advanced Excel capabilities
  • Some knowledge of or a willingness to learn programming languages such as R, Python and SQL.
  • A working understanding of or will have researched the media planning and buying landscape and how MMM can drive more effective marketing plans.
  • Ideally, some experience working within an internal MMM capability or on a client in the Entertainment, Gaming and or Gambling industry within an MMM capacity.

If you want to combine your passion and knowledge for data and analytics with the chance to work in a fast paced and dynamic business, where you can grow and develop, we would love to hear from you.

William Hill in London

Our brand-new central London office has a vibrant, fun and collaborative start-up feel. We couldn’t be closer to the action.

There’s plenty of green space too with Regent’s Park and Hyde Park not far away at all.
