They are looking for an energetic and passionate data professional who loves to contribute to the successes of the team. They want their team to write SQL like it's their first language, and treat Tableau and other data tools like their own personal canvas while always remaining focused on the goals of the team and the business. You will be working primarily on supporting core data governance initiatives such as GDPR compliance and therefore proficient Business objects skills are essential.

You will have experience working in a fast-paced environment, across multiple concurrent projects.

You'll also get exposure to some cutting-edge technologies and techniques like Spark, Data Science and Machine Learning. All that in a great, friendly and collaborative working environment at the UK's #1 Place to Work, as recognised by Glassdoor.
