The role is broad, suiting an autonomous individual who enjoys working across the business to progress reporting and processes in an ever-evolving environment. To this end, they want someone with the prior knowledge to be able to own these processes and stamp their own mark on the reporting processes that underpin the foundations for their ambitious growth agenda.
