Data Support / Programmer

Job Type: Permanent


Our globally recognised military charity is looking for a data support programmer 

£35,000 - £38,000/annum Truly Excellent Bens.

They are looking for someone with 1+ years SQL Server experience to join their busy IT team to work alongside business users and assist them technically with data cleansing, data reporting and data imports and exports.

They are keen to find someone who enjoys using their technical skills, but importanly - also enjoys dealing with people and has a good understanding of data relationships and the importance of good quality data.

You can apply this understanding to helping the data owners (i.e. the business users) to ensure that the data is kept current, accurate and complete. GDPR knowledge is also required.

You will work with users across all departments on data within the different internal and third-party systems used by the organisation. You will want to understand how our data is used to provide the best possible service we can to our beneficiaries and our supporters, and work on the data within this context.

The key responsibilities of the role are to run simple and complex technical queries and reports to select data as requested by users and the technical team, and importing data provided by users.

You will also be responsible for working with the users to ensure data is current, accurate, complete and complies with the charity's policies. This will involve assisting the users in cleaning their data, providing data updates as required using SQL queries, application queries, Excel and data imports. A very important part of this role is to provide regular communication on progress on jobs to the relevant users and the technical team.

You will be based at their historic and beautiful central London office and you will be part of the IT team, reporting to the Applications Development Manager and working closely with the IT Developer, but the role is primarily user-facing.

If you have experience of applying your technical skills to assist users with their data queries, a good understanding of the importance of data accuracy, and preferably some experience of data within a CRM system, and if you are interested in working in a busy, friendly team supporting this great organisation please apply.
