Job description

You make engaging and clear analyses for various customers and support the teams, the team management and the management team from a tactical perspective. You take an independent position in order to be able to play the role of challenger properly. You collect information and analyse data from complex data files and can navigate between the different levels of analysis. You convert the analyses made into concrete advice, and you can convey these findings convincingly and with reasons both orally and in writing. You are adept at drawing up investigation plans, and you know which methods and techniques you can best use.

You approach investigation information and direction critically, and you keep facts and suspicions strictly separate. You can keep a good overview and are alert to links between multiple investigations, incidents or developments. You come up with proposals when you see opportunities for improvement of working methods, methodologies and instruments. You are eager to learn and naturally curious about what is going on in society. You feel connected to safety issues, and you are focused on connection, innovation and development. As an analyst, you actively transfer tailor-made knowledge and skills to colleagues. You are accountable for the quality of the various Intel products.
