Tesco Bank is looking for a chief data officer (CDO) to work in its Edinburgh office with a remit to see that the bank, which provides insurance, mortgages, credit cards, savings and loans, makes the best use of data to inform its operations.
The CDO position is new at Tesco Bank, as the company aims to place more emphasis on data.

The applicant will have proven data experience at a senior level, along with a track record of successfully leading teams dealing with large, complex data landscapes with different reporting and analytics requirements.
The job ad states that a professional qualification, degree or post-graduate degree in IT or a data-related subject is an asset, while the ability to represent and understand the perspective of all internal and external stakeholders is a prerequisite.
