The Finance Division is looking for a proactive and self-starting CCAB qualified accountant to join our dynamic team.  You will be a Cognos experienced developer.  You will be proficient in developing reporting through Cognos TM1 and will be familiar with development using turbo integrator processes within Cognos Planning Analytics.  You should be able to provide relevant and reliable financial reporting to inform specialist financial and business advice on financial plans and to assess business appraisals for new activity and bids for external funding.  You should also be experienced in designing, developing and maintaining Cognos models.
