As one of the most diverse places in the world, and with the youngest population in the country, Newham is a unique and vibrant place to work. As the local council for the area we deliver a host of different services, from housing to social care to early education.
The Council is constantly innovating and working to transform the lives of local people with a focus on building the resilience of residents, our community and the local economy. We do things no other local authority does – like the first borough-wide Landlord Licensing scheme in the country, or our transformative local employment service, Workplace.
The Data Hub is a new and growing team in Newham building on the success of the council's data warehouse. We play a central role in the Council, providing tools and insight to deliver our corporate vision. Situated at the heart of the organisation’s strategy team, we are focussed on delivering an analysis programme to deliver transformation and automated reporting supported by our Elected Mayor and the Strategic Leadership Team.
Service Redesign Analyst
£35,991 - £38,994 pa
This is a fantastic opportunity to put your problem solving and process analysis skills to work to make a real difference to the lives of people in one of London’s most dynamic, diverse, and deprived neighbourhoods. You will get the chance to work creatively to tackle new challenges and solve problems, in a supportive environment where your talents are valued.
You will work with the people who manage our wide range of services to understand what their key problems and challenges are, and identify ways to solve them using data and statistical models. You will work alongside Data Scientists and SQL developers to develop those models and then see them through to implementation.
From helping us to intervene early when children are at risk, to helping to join up services, you will be involved from start to finish in projects that have a recognisable impact on people’s lives.
You will have significant experience of taking business change projects from inception through to delivering improvements and savings. You will be a creative thinker who wants to engage with difficult problems and challenge the way that we do ‘business as usual’.
You will be familiar with analysing business processes, and have knowledge of process redesign methodologies. Ideally you’ll have worked in the public sector, but experience of working in challenging environments or large organisations would also be welcome. You’ll be comfortable working with senior management and able to offer constructive challenge to them.
Importantly, you will be comfortable working in a data-driven environment, with a working knowledge of ICT and statistics and the ability to quickly get to grips with complex business intelligence ideas.
