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 Data Warehouse Programme though the expansion of Business Intelligence.

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.
