Excellent data analysis, interpretation and critical thinking skills are essential, together with a high level of IT literacy and at least intermediate (preferably advanced) knowledge of Excel, plus the ability to develop expert knowledge of internal and customer-facing software applications.
You’ll also need excellent writing, presentation and influencing skills – articulating complex concepts in a clear, logical and structured manner that meets the needs of varying audiences. You must be able to build strong relationships and credibility with senior level client contacts and demonstrate strong consulting and project delivery skills.
