Working for IT in CDP

Our small, dedicated IT team is responsible for the development and support of our core reporting platform including our Online Reporting System, our data analysis system and our general office systems. We aim to deliver an efficient, innovative and comprehensive service to our colleagues, members, disclosing companies and the wider community.
