A leading London law firm is seeking a Data Analyst to provide analytical support for the development and use of the firm’s case management system (run on Inprotech).

Required Skills and Qualities
Extremely conscientious about details – the role will require careful testing and checking of work done by others to a business critical system.
Able to analyse data, make logical deductions about the causes of issues seen in the data and report these clearly to relevant stakeholders
Able to pick up new concepts quickly and ask questions with confidence to ensure a thorough understanding of everything required to be effective in the role – there are few Inprotech configuration experts in the country so little is available in the way of formal training in the system.
Independent thinker, prepared to challenge received wisdom purposefully and tactfully and provide constructive criticism of the work of others.
Prior knowledge of Inprotech is not required.
Engineering, maths or science degree

The Data Analyst will need to develop good working relationships with members of the IT, Formalities and Finance teams, whilst retaining an independent perspective on the role of the system in supporting those aspects of the firm’s operation.
