Essex County Council is working through its Active Essex partnership and with Sport England to build healthier, more active communities. We are leading an innovative and exciting programme of work, focussed on delivering real change in Basildon, Colchester and Tendring. To make this programme work we need access to the right data and leading-edge insight to inform the decisions we take, and to help ensure our investments make a meaningful impact on our communities.
As an analyst, you’re the link between data and decision-making. You’ll play a critical role in providing senior leaders with the information and insight needed for effective leadership and direction. This will involve presenting data and analysis in creative ways to communicate complex messages simply to a range of audiences.
You will work with a wide range of data and evidence sources, including local, partner and open sources and apply a range of data science, data visualisation and analytical techniques. Tasks may include; scoping and development of system / reporting requirements; ‘deep dive’ analyses; mapping; and predictive analytics such as population and demand forecasting or risk stratification, for example.
Knowledge, skills and experience
We’re looking for people with recognised technical ability in a range of data science and/or analytical specialisms. You may have relevant qualifications or be qualified by experience – either way, you’ll use a variety of tools and methods to make sense of data. But we also need people who can put this across in a way that’s compelling and easy to understand – using evidence to tell the story for senior decision-makers and stakeholders.
In return, you can look forward an excellent rewards package, as well as flexible working and long-term career opportunities.
