  • Data extraction requests

Power BI 

  • Designing, building and implementing market-leading Power BI reporting suites that drive clear commercial benefits for the division and the group
  • Managing Power BI capacities, including managing workspaces, apps, performance of capacities, security/access and report/dataflow refreshesDeveloping a strong understanding of the strategic infrastructure required to make Power BI rollout a success
  • Being comfortable enough to train others and advising the stakeholders on best practices 

What we need from you:
This is an entry-level role, so technical experience is not required, as full training will be given. If you have a recent degree from a STEM background, that would be great, but we need someone who is willing to learn the following platforms: 

  • Power BI 
  • Power Apps 
  • DAX 
  • SQL 
  • Python 

In addition, the role will not require any supervisory experience (including the training of junior team members) or previous decision-making experience.

  • Numerically minded, with solid analytical and problem-solving skills
  • Proactive attitude, with the desire to learn and make a difference
  • Collaborative team player
  • Good interpersonal and communication skills
  • Excellent stakeholder management skills
