• Leading the adoption of agile working methodologies within the Business Intelligence Team, acting as the lead for agile steps including team daily huddles, team visualisation reviews and quality assurance and customer acceptable testing.

• Supporting the robust prioritisation of initiatives daily, balancing the resourcing requirements of new initiatives with change requests and support tickets. This prioritisation process will involve working with senior business owners to define requirements, assess prioritisation scoring and presenting to account leaders to ensure the work of the Business Intelligence Team is meeting the strategic priorities of the account and client.

Innovative Analytical Techniques are enabled:

• Acting as subject matter expert when it comes to data and analytics, to explore new, innovative techniques; strategically identifying opportunities and defining an energised analytical roadmap that inspires account and client leadership teams.

• Owning prototyping to ensure the account can assess the viability of new analytical techniques and managing the transition from proof of concept to governed, sustainable solutions once a technique has been assessed as offering sufficient return on investment.
