About the role

With training and on-the-job coaching from more experienced colleagues, you will become familiar with a variety of information sources at the Press, and the tools (mainly SAP Business Objects, possibly Qlik and Power BI) that we use to present the information. Our business intelligence landscape is evolving and you will help present the information in intuitive and interactive ways.
Our Business Intelligence team is part of the Technology department and handles end user support, training and technical issues, as well as development of new reports and applications.

In return you will have a lot of flexibility and trust to make your own decisions with a minimum of administrative hurdles.
A main challenge will be to understand the individual needs of a user and relate this to common solutions for a wider group of users; for this you will need good listening skills and the ability to analyse the information you discover. Collaborating with colleagues in all different parts of the organisation, you need to communicate clearly and with integrity to aid understanding at all times.
