Main Purpose of the role:

To build and manage reports and dashboards to drive business insight and ensure the adoption of this insight throughout the business, to allow value to be derived from it.

The role is fairly autonomous, with direction directly from the managing director. A successful applicant will need to demonstrate the ability to create methods of approach and plan a roadmap of delivery and adoption.
