Over and above that which was in the job specification, below please find specific elements which I am after in a potential candidate. They don’t necessarily have to have all the components but exposure in one form or another is fine and should have a willingness to expand their knowledge in these aspects, specifically the technical literacy aspects.

Computer Literacy

Overriding consideration is that we require someone who understands data flows and the ability to build, collate and present information useful to decision making. The person does not have to have technical IT knowledge but should have a grasp of how to pool information from various sources and conceptualise the reporting requirement needs of a business. If the person is passionate about digital and data analytics in as far as it relates to financial reporting then that would be our preference.
