Forward looking and aspirational team responsible for improving data quality right across the department through information analysis. As part of the Business Intelligence team you will be producing these data and information feeds; it`s a time to be creative.

Great opportunities to go above and beyond.

  • To develop tools, dashboards and systems to support data extraction, integration and analysis.
  • To identify and develop innovative solutions to improve the efficiency, effectiveness and automation of reporting processes.

The benefits you will experience are¦

  • A great office location next to travel links and the regenerated town centre.
