    • Compile daily and weekly reports to accommodate our drawdown requests and provide insights into cash movements and KPIs
    • Deliver detailed monthly servicing reports which combine all of the above and play a huge part in our relationship with stakeholders and continued success as a company
    • Collaborating with the Tech/Data team to build out our Finance database
    • Help grow a culture of data-driven thinking and analysis at OEV!

What you'll need...
