Job Description

At Wilko, we’re a friendly bunch. We’re ambitious too, and we’re growing. Fast! So we’re looking for talented Analysts for our Marketing team – curious, inquisitive people who are always asking ‘why?’ and love telling the stories they find in the data. It’s high profile, rewarding work, helping steer our business towards an even brighter future.


As our Planning Analyst, it’ll be your job to keep Wilko thinking ahead. Supporting the Planning Manager, you’ll work together to analyse market data and changes in customer and competitor behaviour to spot future trends and how they could impact our business. Always asking “what if?” and thinking beyond the obvious, you’ll have a talent for turning data into any number of possible scenarios, and spotting opportunities for growth. In short, thanks to your expertise, skills and enthusiasm, Wilko will keep going from strength to strength.


Passionate about trend spotting, and analytical to the core, you’ll be a great communicator who can make complex information easy to understand for any audience. And you’ll have the confidence to introduce new processes in a brand new role. We’re looking for an interrogative, out-of-the-box thinker too, who’s skilled at building forecasting and predictive models and working with data sets. Possibly with a background in commercial accounting or as a junior management consultant, you’ll also be organised, logical and mathematical. This is an executive entry level role with lots of exposure to senior level people – ideal for someone looking for an opportunity to really shine.


It’s your chance to make a valuable contribution to the future of a thriving family business. And join a genuinely friendly and fun team who come to work smiling, are passionate about what they do, offer flexible working arrangements and a supportive culture where your career can really take off.
