Head of Projects and Data Insights
Posted on Jan 6, 2023 by Logix Resourcing
An experienced Head of Projects and Data Insights is required by our Birmingham based customer to come into the business and firstly understand that data landscape that they have in place and assist the C Level Directors in putting in place a data strategy that the business can then work to.
The successful candidate will have a background of Project Management, but also managing small data teams (built up of PowerBI and Database Analysts expertise) who are focussed on delivering business insights reports in a fast moving rapid changing retail environment. Outside of the data projects there are a whole host of other projects to be delivered for our customer who are 8-10 years behind with they IT Systems. For example; O365 Migration, Azure Implementation, Sage Implementation, New Telephony rollout etc.
Candidates applying for this role should have some hands on ability in report creation, not necessarily to be hands on all the time, but to ensure that you know that what the team is delivering is correct, or if they say this isn't possible that the wool won't be pulled over your eyes. Of course, the ability to write reports yourself would be advantageous.
The key focus on entering the business will be to bring some structure to the team, however, I must stress that this isn't a very structured or regimented environment and the business do at times need to cut data corners that some specialists would not be comfortable working in this manner, especially if they are from a very structured background of working.
This role will require a candidate to be onsite three days a week as a minimum and the remainder or the week home working.
