The main job of a records analyst is to conduct analysis of management and identify any potential operating issues. These analysts work closely with top executives in order to report problems and potential solutions.
Records analysts are responsible for: analyzing complex mathematical and simulation models of issues and developing solutions; determining costs and risks in relation to a problem's solution; analyzing statistics and written and visual data to see how they relate to one another; developing new test models when there is not enough data; and preparing reports for top executives.
Records analysts generally work for large companies during traditional weekly business hours. Much of their time will be spent at a computer, and the work may be mentally draining and require a lot of thought, attention to detail, and heavy use of mathematics.
To be considered for the position, applicants should generally have a bachelor's or master's degree in mathematics or statistics, some experience in finance or computer science, strong analytical skills, and the ability to perform complex functions on a computer. Excellent verbal and written communication skills and interpersonal skill are also important.
