What does our commercial team do?
Roles Responsibilities

Roles and responsibilities

Every day is different for our client team. One day you might be putting proposals together and consulting on insight work, the next you might be managing a data portal – but that’s just the account management side of the role.

Sometimes you’ll be focusing on business development, collaborating with other areas of dunnhumby such as Price & Promotions and Category Management to leverage our capabilities and commercialising our insights in the market. At other times, you’ll turn your hand to internal projects, putting our Customer data science knowledge to work in order to improve and develop our overall strategy and the way we work.

Tools of the trade

The team primarily uses our flagship product, dunnhumby Shop, where all the Clubcard and EPoS data is housed. It’s a self-serve platform that we, and our suppliers, to respond to any client requests that come in, so from day one you’ll be immersed into our flagship product, generating data science-driven insights to help clients resolve their biggest retail issues.

Taking the right approach

Data Science can be confusing to those on the outside, so we need to be able to demonstrate credibility, therefore a passion for data and confidence are a must. You’ll need to be good at creating compelling stories out of our data and be able to work alongside other teams to show the bigger picture and truly unlock all its possibilities.

You should be a natural communicator and be able to provide solutions to clients that minimise difficulties for them. You’ll have targets to achieve and promises to the business to meet every day so maintaining an agile, proactive approach is essential.
