My client are going through a lot of change at the moment and management information reporting needs to be developed alongside that change programme. There are lots of legacy systems that they're trying to transfer all over to Power BI. Some of the work has started but they don't fully understand the reporting capabilities of Power BI as an organisation. Working very closely with IT and Business Change teams, we need someone who can lead them through this change and system migration.

Really, they are looking for a Power BI technical specialist who will act as the SME for the finance reporting function, supporting & guiding directors and senior leadership throughout the implementation (someone who doesn't need to ask questions, they're there to answer the questions!) Person needs to be able to communicate well and translate complex data configurations into easy to understand information for the rest of the business.

Person Spec:

In line with the role profile plus the following

  • Must have led an MI Team in a complex organisation with multiple systems and data sources with high volumes of data
  • Strong track record of achievements and direct accountability for step change improvements through CV. Specifically, must have led on and delivered large scale MI improvements at more than one different organisation.
  • Proven track record of development throughout career demonstrating an ability to understand the work and requirements at different levels within the team;
  • Solutions focused approach, must be collaborative and able to gain the trust and confidence of Directors and Heads of Service across the business
