The Data Developer is part of a specialist team with technical expertise and knowledge to deliver management information to the organisation. Using professional industry recognised techniques, the role is critical in delivering accessible, well structured data and information to operational teams to empower them to make business decisions and deliver effective/efficient services. The role works closely with analysts and performance officers to turn abstract business questions and academic concepts into highly valued intelligence and insights.
