* Change control, Risk and Issue, Documents and Requirements management
* Understanding of financial processes and the ability to report financial data
* Strong Excel Skills and the ability to manipulate big data using spreadsheets
* Working in a consultancy or customer- facing role (either with internal or external clients).
