As a Project Analyst, you will be responsible for conducting research and performing both quantitative and qualitative analysis for projects in various fields, including accounting, insurance, and real estate.
Projects can range from a quick ad-hoc analysis that takes a few minutes, to large-scale, long term projects with multiple phases that take months. Sometimes you will need to answer a specific question, and sometimes you will have an open-ended task that will require independent research and creative thinking. You will need to be a quick learner, and be able to manage working on several projects concurrently. No two days will be the same – you will rarely have repetitive tasks, but rather will move from project to project as they begin and end.
It is important that you have impeccable communication skills, so that you are able to clearly communicate the results of your research and analysis to colleagues and supervisors. You must also be able to communicate professionally with business partners and other outside parties, whether over the phone or through email.
The ideal candidate will have the following skills:
Formulas, pivot tables, and formatting
Clear and professional
Familiar with concepts such as premiums, deductibles, claims, etc.
Preferably management experience as well
General business experience
Exposure to financial statements and understanding of concepts such as markets, debt, equity, interest rates, etc.
Ability to look at an article, chart, data table, report, or financial statement and determine which information is most important
An intuitive sense for numbers and the ability to do quick, approximate calculations is most important
