Guided by our shared values, our vision is to improve the lives of our customers and communities, focusing on two clear themes of work: Health and wellbeing and economic resilience. You can see how we’ll achieve this vision through our Improving Lives strategy by watching this video.

To help us deliver this ambitious vision our improvement and insight team is expanding and we are looking for a highly skilled Insight Analyst to support the Group to maximise forward looking data and insight to help decision making, strategic planning and the design of organisational improvement activities.

The Role

You will be an experienced Analyst who understands the importance and power of high-quality insight and how this can be used to drive our Organisation forward and achieve our Improving Lives Strategy.

Working closely with the Performance Business partner and the wider Improvement team, you will provide the business with valuable business insight and analytics that drive performance improvement. This includes trend analysis, interrogation of performance and root cause analysis and most importantly the provision of future forecasts and scenario modelling.

For this role you will need to have significant experience in handling large and disparate data sets and the ability to understand, interpret, and translate this data into meaningful insight. You will support the business through the provision of ad-hoc analysis as well as trouble shooting and resolving data issues.

This is a really fantastic opportunity to make a real difference and provide valuable business insight that informs the decisions we make as a business to improve the lives of our customers.

About You

You will be a highly skilled Insight Analyst who is both passionate about the importance and power of insight to transform an organisation and proven experience in how it can really drive performance improvement and services for our customers.

You will possess a high level of mathematical ability and demonstrable experience of working with programming languages and reporting visualisation tools. You will have experience of working across disparate systems and making the best use of internal and external data sources to create meaningful and valuable insight.

You will be passionate about making better use of data and supporting the business to understand and own it. We are on a journey to becoming data led and it is vital in this role you can understand, interpret and present results and information to stakeholders in a variety of ways.

You will thrive in working in a fast-paced environment and should possess a high level of personal ownership and initiative. The ability to prioritise work requests and manage stakeholder requirements is essential and you will have significant role experience of ensuring the business has access to the right information at the right time.

Excellent communication skills are a must and the ability to embed our partnering approach with stakeholders to understand, interpret and present data and KPIs that support the business on its continuous improvement agenda.

Experience in the housing sector would be helpful although not essential. We are on a journey to becoming a data led organisation and if you think you can offer the skills and energy to help us get there, please apply today.
