We’re in a phase of growth – join our team and make a difference. You’ll be more than “just a number”. You’ll be helping to position a multi-billion-dollar, multinational company for the future.

The Data & AI Team is a specialist practice within reecetech. Our mandate is to weave intelligent, responsible, and consistent data use into improving our customers and people’s lives every day.

  • Establishing delivery disciplines within the Business Analysis team that enable consistent identification and communication of requirement risks, issues, dependencies and learnings as uncovered through your analysis
  • Lead the delivery on key aspects of data-driven solutions, working on practising consistency and rigour in deep-diving into data sets to answer key business questions while interfacing business and reecetech teams
  • Contribute to Reece-wide data & AI literacy, particularly around data analysis, management and handling best practice.
  • Exceptional understanding of Reece’s data systems, structures and architecture
  • Work with other Data Principals to establish modern delivery frameworks that optimise our ability to deliver value
  • Actively shape best practice business analysis methods and disciplines (e.g. repeatable quality assurance processes and testing) supporting flexibility and speed to value
  • Evolve business analysis methods and disciplines in line with Reece’s changing data landscape across business systems and applications
  • Adopt a customer-centric mindset on all projects, meeting and exceeding Reece’s responsible data use principles and commitments
  • Bring thought leadership Reece-wide to shape the thinking on responsible and intelligent data use, particularly around a sustained approach to documenting and maintaining our data assets and infrastructure
