Executive Analyst: Job Description
The Executive Analyst (EA) is the senior EMPLOYER executive responsible for maximizing the conversion of all Stage I Assessment engagements into Stage II Implementation authorizations – and to do so in accordance with company standards for quality, profitability and account potential.
An effective EA ensures that the Stage I Assessment effort is properly and formally planned and that adequate tools exist for managing and monitoring progress. An EA applies, appropriately and expertly, all aspects of the EMPLOYER Assessment methodology, including process mapping, PULSE surveys and workplace studies.
In addition, an EA ensures that EMPLOYER can accurately and thoroughly quantify all meaningful client performance gaps by the “Findings” meeting during the Assessment, and be in a position to estimate the bottom-line impact of closing these gaps.
By the end of the Assessment, the EA will ensure that all Stage II Implementation authorizations meet company standards in terms of client expectations, project design and profitability. Specifically, all Stage II proposals must: Meet all client commitments when executed as planned and satisfy client expectations as documented; Have the commitment of the assigned Account Director with respect to deliverables, margins and staffing; Comprise satisfactory profit margins and manweek rates (a minimum of 65 percent profit margin and prevailing manweek rates).
The EA must turn over to the EMPLOYER Account Director a top client and executive management team that is fully prepared and committed to the project requirements.
The EA is expected to convert 90 percent of all Stage I Assessments into Stage II Implementation engagements. The EA is also expected to convert at least 75 percent of the Stage II fee potential (amount ball parked) at acceptable gross margin levels, with timely and accurate execution of project administration requirements.
The position includes a base salary and a performance-related incentive based upon the level of profit for the Stage II billing sold by virtue of completing the Stage I Assessment.
Please note: All work is performed on our client sites and the EA will occasionally travel to HQ for training or if they are in-between projects. The travel is typically Sunday night through Friday.
