Brent is a tremendously vibrant London borough where the iconic arch of Wembley Stadium dominates the skyline. Spanning both inner and outer London, it is a borough of huge contrasts in terms of its economic, environmental, ethnic and social make up. Brents diversity is evident to all who visit our borough and our long history of ethnic and cultural diversity has created a place that is truly unique and valued by those who live and work here.
The council is pursuing a far-reaching transformation agenda that better meets the needs of our community, so it is an exciting time to join us.
This post is part of the Evidence & Insight, within Public Health, which is a multi-disciplinary team of analysts and researchers who work across a wide variety of Public Health projects. The service helps operational teams to robustly monitor and improve performance and quality, to gain more sophisticated insight into the needs and experiences of our residents, and to design and deliver lasting improvements across our services.
We use a range of qualitative and quantitative methodologies to understand current and future needs of our population from delivering a more dynamic Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA), to giving a granular understanding of the experience of those accessing specific services within the borough.
The postholder will support the rest of the team to deliver a wide range of projects spanning from understanding unmet need, service evaluations, and exploring residents views and behaviours. It is expected that the postholder will have some experience in analytics and will be keen to further develop their skills through hands- on experience and through working alongside the research analyst, three senior analysts and the research & insight manager. In addition to data collection and analyses, the postholder, with support from the of the team, will be expected to work collaboratively with stakeholders to synthesise data and disseminate findings by creating compelling stories.
The ideal candidate will be an excellent communicator; someone who is happy to engage with a wide range of stakeholders and quickly build credibility and rapport. You will be at the beginning of your career (or your analytics career if you have recently changed career) and you are looking for a role that will help you grow as an analyst. Youll be keen to learn how to articulate the nub of an issue, to succinctly distil a wide-ranging evidence base, and how to explain these simply to a wide range of audiences. Youll be a creative thinker; keen to learn and explore new approaches.
Most importantly, youll be someone who wants to expand their analytics knowledge and, in the process, help us deliver evidence and continually improve our approach to health inequalities.
We welcome different perspectives and believe that candidates with the right skills for this role could come from a range of sources. So, whether you have got an analytics or data science background, you are an expert in Excel or confident and keen to learn more about PowerBi or Tableau, if you believe you have the right skills, we will welcome an application from you.
