  • Influence: Work with many teams like: Operations, Legal, Comms, Policy, Product, Engineering, and Analytics to drive strategic initiatives and harness opportunities.

We're excited about you because you have…

  • 4+ years' experience in consulting, strategy, operations, technology, banking, analytics or related experience
  • Proven analytical skills and can deliver actionable recommendations from complex datasets; advanced Excel skills are a must and familiarity with SQL is preferred (or a strong desire to learn).

  • Strong interpersonal and communication skills, with the ability to collaborate effectively across teams and influence key stakeholders.
