How will I be successful?

  • As the Master Data guru you will be the education and engagement champion for everything data related in the business;
  • You’ll have a lifetime of experience (okay maybe not a lifetime but you will know your stuff) with Master Data inside and out of ERPs and will likely have even been a “super user”;
  • You will make stories out of data and be able to communicate findings in a way non analysts will understand;
  • FMCG, Food and drink manufacturing, distribution and retail will have been paramount during most of your career to date;
  • As far as business-jargon goes, our best practice learnings signal a need for a PFP (passion for pets)
  • Brandvalues will shine through in everything you do;
  • It’s faster paced than a team of huskies here at Lily’s Kitchen. You’ll need to be comfortable with sitting on that fast moving sleigh;
  • You’ll have an endearingly geeky affinity for Microsoft Office, particularly Excel (advanced level) and all it quirks!
  • You’ll be better at communication than postman Pat with 12 phones and a carrier pigeon;
  • A Puss-in-Boots-level planner and organisational skills to rival Monica Geller;
  • You’ll be well practiced at using your initiative, have a can-do attitude and will be peachy keen to learn and grow.
