  • Opportunities to present forecasts and analysis to internal and external stakeholders.
  • Potentially supporting the creation of data visualisations, web-embedded dashboards and processes using innovative techniques and technology.

Experience in use of standard econometric and statistical packages, for example Eviews and R, is desirable.
