L&Q have implemented a corporate Data Governance Framework to manage the way we collect, use and share data throughout the organisation, with emphasis on improving the completeness and accuracy of the information we use to ensure one version of the truth.
The Data Quality Assurance Manager is a new role offering a challenging opportunity for a candidate with strong Data Quality skills and experience gained on driving data quality improvement programmes, data mapping / data migration, data profiling and master data management projects. Data skills will be complemented by an ability to communicate persuasively and effectively at all levels both within and outside the organisation.
Reporting to the Head of BI & Data Analytics, the Data Assurance Manager will review the business processes and work flows needed for strengthening data management and play a major role in identifying, cleaning and assuring the data.
You will also pro-actively identify ways to reduce data quality issues at source by proposing improvements to systems and processes to reduce the risk of erroneous data capture and processing errors, re-educate users etc as appropriate.
This is a varied and challenging role that demands stakeholder management, planning, driving issues to resolution and people skills. You will work as a specialist, liaise with data processors, data owners, data stewards, users and technology teams and collaborate with multi-disciplinary project teams and informal focus groups to improve and quantify the reliability of the data needed to keep L&Q at the forefront.
Your suitability will be evidenced by a track record of contribution to successful implementation of data quality improvement programmes, master data management and/or a major data migration project.
The successful candidate is likely to have formal professional and academic qualifications or affiliations related to data quality and data management.
L&Q have two main offices and this role will have the option to be based at Stratford, E15 4PH or Sidcup, DA14 5HU. There will be a requirement to travel between the offices on ad hoc occasions, however, travel expenses between offices can be reclaimed.
