Job Description for Commercial Analyst

The successful operation of a business is largely contingent upon optimizing efficiency in financial operations, fixing problem areas, and taking advantage of opportunities for growth. The role of the commercial analyst is to conduct close examinations - using mathematical models and predictive economic research - of a company's revenue, operations, expenses and competition; they must find relevant patterns and discrepancies, and use this analysis to determine policy changes that improve the business' functioning and/or profits. They present these changes to organizational management and respond to questions and critiques. The commercial analyst's results often serve as the nucleus for new marketing programs, alterations in protocols, and adjustments in financial strategies. A commercial analyst generally works in a typical office environment during normal business hours, although overtime may be required depending on the needs of the business. These professionals may be employed by one agency permanently or work as a contractor for multiple organizations.
