About Us:

Develop the insight that drives our direction.

In Kensington and Chelsea, we have an ambitious Council Plan which sets out our priorities for the next four years. It is directly shaped by the Council’s biggest ever ‘conversation’ with residents and puts community involvement at its heart. Our brand new Corporate Strategy team is drawing together expertise and experience from across the organisation to ensure a strong collective response. Embedding lessons learnt and recovering from the pandemic will be top priorities.

We’re working to ensure Kensington and Chelsea emerges stronger from these uniquely challenging times by strengthening performance management and enabling effective programme management. We’ll also ensure the Council achieves its ambitions on equality, diversity and inclusion. It’s work that will potentially set the course of the Council for many years to come.

The Role:

Your data analysis expertise will have real impact on the future of Kensington and Chelsea. The evidence, intelligence, and insight you develop will provide strong foundations for making and executing key decisions. You’ll also be able to influence the shape of this brand new team as well as playing a leading role in supporting the organisation to use data in decision making.

There are two key aspects to the role, both focused on data analysis. Firstly, you’ll have responsibility for part of the development, management and maintenance of the corporate performance and reporting framework to track our progress in delivering the Council plan. In addition, your analysis of community and economic intelligence will help to drive service design and policy approaches, key corporate programmes and you will play a key role in corporate business planning. 

Please refer to the Job Description for more information. 

About You:

These are hands-on data analysis roles demanding a high level of practical problem-solving.  We will look to you to translate complex datasets into compelling insights and realistic proposals. You’ll need extensive knowledge of Microsoft Power BI for both analysis and data modelling, and will also have strong data visualisation skills. Experience of using SharePoint lists and document libraries, and developing forms for data input, are essential.  Well-developed communication skills will be essential to share your findings with a range of audiences, both in person and in writing. You will also need the ability to juggle competing priorities while maintaining clear focus.

In return, you can look forward to a package that includes a competitive salary, a high-quality pension scheme and generous annual leave plus bank holidays.

Role Requirements:

You will play a key role in corporate business planning. Your role requirements are as below:

•    Analysing community and economic intelligence in order to feed into service design and policy approach.
•    Delivering business, data and performance analysis including scoping, data collection and analysis, research, and presentation of findings.
•    Working closely with the head of service to establish an effective framework for monitoring the Council Plan.
•    Working with colleagues in the PMO team and across the Council to actively and effectively contribute to corporate business planning. This will also involve facilitating the production of an annual corporate report and business plan. 
•    Leading on data and performance process development and improvement working with stakeholders, facilitating sessions and mapping new processes.
•    Presenting complex research and analysis findings effectively, using written reports, presentations and online channels as appropriate.

We work in partnership with Hampshire County Council (HCC) who deliver many transactional services on our behalf. Although most communications will be from HCC, all selection and appointment decisions will be made by RBKC. Certain services are shared across more than one Council area to nearby neighbouring Authorities. This enhances delivery and reduces costs. Your recruitment information will advise if your remit extends beyond RBKC.

We will primarily contact candidates by e-mail throughout the recruitment process, please monitor your email junk / spam folder as our system generated emails may be allocated to these folders by your email settings.

We engage our staff with a variety of learning types including face-to-face and virtual learning because we want to ensure our staff understand our values and behaviours, grow their skills and develop their careers.
