When searching for your next career opportunity within Business Intelligence/Systems Development, how important is the industry sector to you when considering an opportunity?
It might not matter at all, or it could mean everything. Either way, there are some things that are important to everyone: interesting work, job security, working with good people and of course a competitive salary.
During the course of the pandemic, the legal sector has shown great resilience, as it has done through previous economic cycles, both good and bad. Law firms have also been investing heavily in BI tools and teams over recent years, becoming increasingly sophisticated in the use of data to measure performance and inform strategic decision making.
It's not an easy sector to break in to, but once you're in, it'll be worth it.
We're currently supporting an international law firm with the hire of a Business Systems Developer, initially on a 12m fixed term contract, but with good prospects of converting to a permanent contract. You don't need prior law firm experience, but shortlisted applicants will need to have a high degree of proficiency with the MS SQL stack and Power BI reporting, with the ability to query performance and construct tables.
The successful applicant will be joining a high calibre Business Systems team, which sits between IT and finance. You'll be responsible for the development of reporting using SSRS and Power BI, working with the firms' finance system vendor to help develop the reporting data warehouse and SSAS cubes, managing a varied workload including ad-hoc projects alongside day to day queries.
If you would like to be considered for this opportunity please apply without delay, even if you still need to update/compile your CV. Alternatively you can contact Richard Hooper at Balance Recruitment directly for more information.
