We are looking for a diligent, enthusiastic person to fill this role to help us build a full data capability so we can better tailor our services, make better decisions and understand more about what residents need.
You will help us to create business and user value from data, using analytical techniques to derive insights and opportunities to improve.
Using a range of languages, tools and software product, you’ll develop visualisations and reports which help services to improve.
Working in partnership with services, you’ll help them understand, manipulate and link their data, taking responsibility for improving data quality and accessibility.
You will be passionate about great customer service, helping people both within and outside the Council.
You will be enthusiastic and not afraid to “try things out” and learn new tasks but also not afraid to ask for help.
Key tasks include:
• Selecting and applying innovative analytical techniques to data, to create information which supports and enhances strategy development, business decision-making and service delivery.
• Working with services to help them make better use of data, including extracting data from systems, building reports, insights and dashboards, and helping services interpret the data gathered.
• Undertaking independent analytical projects, working with the data engineer to suggest where data extracts, feeds or streams would help to build insight. Translate these insights into a variety of visual, clear reports which help the Council make better, quicker decisions.
Location of work to be discussed and agreed with the Chief Officer Digital and Communications and the provisions of the Council’s Agile Working policy will apply.
The Company - Rugby Borough Council makes a difference.
Working for one of fastest growing boroughs in the country, we have ambitious plans to build on our track record of delivering growth and investment, while supporting our communities and creating opportunities for all. We’re proud of our past - after all, Rugby’s home to a game enjoyed by millions around the world.
We’re firmly focused on the future - and we know to make a difference, sometimes you have to do things differently. We’re currently driving digitalisation throughout our organisation, transforming the way we work while giving our customers quick and easy access to a wide range of online services. We have also launched Rugby Net Zero, a commitment to cut the council’s C02 emissions to net zero by 2030 while taking the lead in the borough’s bid to become carbon neutral. And we’ve embarked on plans for a radical regeneration of Rugby town centre, creating a sustainable, thriving urban environment supported by a 21st century transport system and digital infrastructure.
We’re making a difference – and we need people who share our vision and ambition.

We offer agile working, a flexitime scheme, family friendly policies, generous annual leave, and excellent pension scheme.
