You LOVE data and are happiest when delving into the numbers in order to understand, make sense of and find the story within the detail. You can clearly and easily spot the gaps and identify the opportunities by looking at graphs and charts, and you enjoy a challenge and do not shy away from finding a solution to a problem.

You have an analytical mind with the creative ability to simplify and visually represent data in an easy to understand and aesthetically appealing way.

You are not afraid of numbers or technology and have “stickability” when it comes to embarking on a steep learning curve and figuring out how to use new and complex software. You enjoy calculations and attention to detail and accuracy are non-negotiables in your work output and deliverables.
