Salt is currently hiring an IT data management analyst, for one of our clients in Brussels. The candidate would need to be onsite once a month for 3/4 days in Brussels.

To succeed you are expected to partnership with other IT teams to define the best approach, have it conceptually defined, effectively tested, and rolled out.

The scope will be extended to IT Technical Data that will inherit the CIA classification from the application to some extent and mainly for unstructured data. This part will require close connection with application owners and capability to analyse large amount of stored data to come with the best way to have them classified.

In addition to your role, you will be collaborating with one of our Senior team member to first take over your role but also support other activities correlated to IT Data Management and help to identify, build and monitor effective inventorisation of our most critical set of data focusing on unstructured one but aligning with the Data Management Office methodology & framework for the structured part.

Your main deliverables are:

  • Set-up strong collaboration with IT Teams in charge of implementing the strategy defined and in line with existing policies, standards and procedures.
  • In collaboration with Business Relationship Management (BRM) team build a communication campaign towards the various stakeholders of the process focusing on benefits so to ensure right level of awareness is set up within the IT division.
