  • Answering ad-hoc queries from senior management to support decision making

  • Effective communication skills in English, both written and verbal, including proficiency in business and accounting terminology 
  • Strong MS Excel and Power Point skills to support efficient data gathering and presentations

Experience using Think Cell would be a plus, as would the knowledge of BI tools like OBIEE or OACS.
