​If you’re looking to work for a business that is taking data seriously and has big plans for its data offering, then the below should be of interest.

You’ll be working for a digital agency that is looking to utilise data as a major part of it’s transformation strategy. You’ll build working relationships with key stakeholders to gather data requirements and generate actionable insights and reports to drive key business objectives.

The company offers a huge amount of development opportunities and provides investment for you to upskill in certain areas of your professional life, although you will need to be at the right level for this role before you start thinking about upskilling.

It’s a collaborative and high performing environment, with two days a week in their central Manchester offices.

To be considered for this role you’ll need to have a solid understanding of, and demonstrable experience in:

-          PostgreSQL (other relational databases are fine but this is the preference)

-          Tableau for BI reporting and visualisations

-          Dbt for build of data pipelines and warehouse work.

 

Why you would want this job:

There’s a huge amount of scope. It’s a new role within the organisation, and there are huge plans for the way in which data is being used. It’s an internal role now but the idea is that this offering will eventually be rolled out to the wider client base.

Autonomy. This position has been set up and ready to go, so it’ll be yours to navigate from day one. You’re in charge of the stakeholder relationships, you’re in charge of the way the role develops, you’re in charge of the way that data is used across the business. It really is an open book.

 

Why you may not want this role:

Autonomy. Yes, this is mentioned as a positive in the paragraph above, but if you’re looking for a role that will train and develop you from day one, then this may not be for you. Whilst this company has a leading learning and development programme, making the future possibilities huge, you will need to be at the level to be able to take hold of the reins from day one if you’re going to succeed.
