The Opportunity:

This is a permanent role working closely with a small team focused on project reporting and commercial analysis. Whilst your team is small, your footprint across the business is broad and you will get to know the whole business and work in conjunction with a wide cohort of stakeholders. If you enjoy working beyond the numbers to really understand and add value to the business, this is a great role for you.
