  • Experience of data extraction and coding in the absence of a dedicated ETL team
  • Ability to build from scratch and set up data governance and dictionary models
  • Proven ability of analysing and understanding systems and business requirements
  • Proven ability of delivering succinct reports using Tableau, MS EXCEL and PowerPoint, that are tailored to different situations and audiences
