    To fulfil this client demand we are continuing to grow our data & technology focussed team, which is the engine of our analytics capability. The scope of the roles we have available is broad, and so you will need to have a good understanding of data, tell a compelling story, and quickly pick up new skills.

    • Ability to communicate technical concepts to non-technical persons
    • Experience of developing and delivering PowerPoint presentations
    • Knowledge of statistical techniques and analysis (such as regression, clustering, sampling,)
    • Experience with business finance and broader (external and internal) audit function concepts (such as risk assessment and scoping, controls etc)
    • Willingness to travel to client sites in the UK and Europe when required

    To qualify for the role, you must have

    • At least a 2:1 degree in a STEM or finance-related subject
    • Minimum of 3 years’ experience of working in data and analytics
    • Experience with industry-standard data and analytics applications and tools such as PowerBI (highly desirable), Microsoft Power platform / PowerApps (highly desirable), Tableau, Alteryx (highly desirable), Spotfire, SQL, and Excel
    • Experience of data extraction, analysis, cleansing, quality and manipulation skills
    • An understanding of the major finance processes (e.g. procure to pay)
    • An understanding of risk and control environment (e.g. testing of control design and operational effectiveness, RACM etc) and how analytics can be applied in that context 

    Ideally, you’ll also have

    • The ability to tell a story through analytics
    • An interest in emerging technologies, such as blockchain, AI and RPA
    • Professional services background (consulting, risk and/or assurance)

    What we look for
    We’re looking for ambitious, driven individuals who want a challenging and stimulating career working on a broad spectrum of analytics projects.

    The individual will be able to turn unfamiliar datasets into valuable insights for our clients using market-leading tools and techniques.
