Job description

Make no mistake, this is a career-defining opportunity for the successful candidate. 

The right person will be as comfortable in setting strategy and recruiting a high performing team as they are in ‘getting their sleeves rolled up’ and helping out more tactically when the need arises, particularly as the organisation scales. We are passionate about our team, our collective development and the culture that pervades throughout the organisation; as a member of the management team this role also has an important part to play in living and promoting our values. We are committed to diversity and to ensuring that everyone feels at home and can contribute as a peer within the business.

The Company

Our enterprise platform goes beyond predictions and provides causal insights and suggested actions that directly improve business outcomes for leading businesses in asset management, banking, insurance, logistics, retail, utilities, energy, telecommunications and many others.
