We're looking for an APS 6 Analyst that is good at working with numbers. The role involves interpreting existing data, as well as developing funding models.

  • Using MS Excel at an advanced level
  • Creating visualisations using Qlik (or Excel)
  • Presenting data (in writing and verbally) to technical and nontechnical stakeholders
