The role

As part of expanding our analytics platform we have an exciting Data Architect role, critical to helping us make more data quickly available and into meaningful management information and insight.

As Data Architect, you will be responsible for developing database solutions to store and retrieve company information and ensuring it is stored effectively and securely. You will help build, optimise and maintain conceptual and logical database models for our cloud analytics infrastructure and MI outputs which service all internal customers including the data science, e-commerce teams to warehouse operations and financial performance.

This would suit someone looking for a role that is fluid and flexible and will provide some autonomy and accountability.

Experienced data architects preferred, but we invite any other roles with relevant experiences to apply.

Your team

In Finance, we charge towards commercial aims. Our proactive business partnering, advice and forecasting give the Group confidence to succeed. We’re all about delivering world-class finance, addressing limitations, overcoming challenges, and ensuring the business invests in the right things.

  • Establish processes, standards and policies for managing and governing data across the enterprise
  • Maintain the enterprise data catalogue and enterprise data assets such as an enterprise data glossary, conceptual and logical data model
  • Establishing and leading a network of data owners and stewards to ensure data is cared for as an asset
