This post is formed of two complimentary part time roles.
- Adoption South East Regional Adoption Agency (ASE RAA)
ASE will be launching in April 2020, joining up the adoption services currently operated by Surrey, East Sussex, West Sussex and Brighton and Hove councils. The new agency will bring together all that is best from the 4 services under a single structure, with the aim of recruiting adoptive families for children and offering comprehensive adoption services.
We will need to develop our systems for collecting, analysing and presenting the data. Close links will need to be maintained with the data and adoption teams in the 4 councils to ensure that systems and processes are efficient, robust and ensure the highest quality data is available to support the development of the RAA.
- South East Regional Benchmarking
Since 2014 East Sussex have been commissioned by the South East Sector Led Improvement programme (SESLIP) to deliver a range of regional data benchmarking reports, to run the data network meetings and provide ad hoc analysis to support sector led improvement. Currently we provide benchmarking reports of children’s social care, special educational needs, adoption, the social care workforce and to support the annual peer challenge process. The reports are hosted on the SESLIP website (www.seslip.co.uk) and it the responsibility of this team to maintain the Data pages.
With the advent of newer data visualisation software, we are looking for someone who can help us to develop our benchmarking reports to make the most of these opportunities. This role will work with one other analyst to deliver this work.
To help us achieve these two functions we need a committed and innovative information analyst, able to work with colleagues across the region to ensure information needed to support peer review, performance management and service development is readily available to staff and managers. They will need to work with both practice managers and data colleagues to ensure we are delivering information that supports service development and improves outcomes for children, young people and their families. To help manage the workload the post will be part of a team in the Data, Research and Information Governance team who will support the post to liaise with the services and prioritise the work.
The role will require agile working, attending meetings and events but the normal work base could be from one of a number of locations within the region –subject to agreement with the hiring manager.
