The Analyst role is critical in providing senior leaders and politicians with the information and business intelligence needed for effective leadership, governance and decision making.

About you

As a performance analyst, you're the link between data and decision-making. You'll play a critical role in providing senior leaders and team managers with the information and insight needed for effective management of the service and strategic planning. 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, applying a performance lens through data visualisation and analytical techniques. Tasks may include; scoping and development of system / reporting requirements; 'deep dive' analyses; mapping; and some predictive analytics to help the service plan for the future.

Knowledge, Skills & Experience

We're looking for people with recognised technical ability in a range of performance analysis, data visualisation and dashboard creation. 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.

You will be highly proficient in Excel and PowerBI.
Previous experience within Adult Social Care and/or a performance role will be advantageous.

In return, you can look forward an excellent rewards package, as well as flexible working and long-term career opportunities.
