This is a wide-ranging and fundamental role, with scope to make a big impact on a new specialist analytics team that will help to drive the way this Regulator manages its data and output.

The major project is around modelling risk. Following the success of initial work in this field, we are establishing a new central analytics team. At this exciting time of change and evolution, you will help to shape the team, its work and its impact.

We will look to you to update, develop and exploit the intelligence risk model with new data. This will include re-running predicted risk profiles and interpreting them to senior leaders. Working closely with a range of stakeholders, you will seek to understand their requirements for data modelling and contribute ideas to their work. Your impact will range from supporting a key Intelligence Forum with insights into developing areas of risk, through to informing the priorities of the orgnaisation. Along the way, you’ll source, review, clean, summarise and store a variety of internal and external datasets for use in modelling.

Your qualifications and experience will include building predictive data models using R and dashboard reports in Tableau, and designing relational databases and extracting data from them using SQL. An excellent communicator and relationship builder, you have a flair for critically evaluating, clarifying and negotiating requests for analysis from colleagues. Crucially, you have a strong talent for presenting analysis methods and results from data modelling clearly.
