About The Service
An opportunity is available within the Council’s Performance & Insight Team for a Business Intelligence Programme Manager who is interested in being at the heart of the Council’s performance and improvement agenda. The Performance & Insight Team is made up of analysts and performance specialists and is responsible for driving forward some of the Council’s core business intelligence projects. The work of the Team is closely aligned to the strategic priorities of the organisation and our public service partners, working closely with all Council services to support them in improving their performance, and delivering key cross-cutting projects.
About the job
This is a programme manager role specialising in data and business intelligence projects within the Performance & Insight Team. The successful candidate will lead on the delivery of a programme of business intelligence projects by identifying relevant datasets, prioritising tasks required to extract, automate, and present data, and managing resources and timescales for project activity. Projects will involve working with complex service and performance data; therefore, a good level of data literacy is essential. You will be part of a highly motivated, dedicated, and supportive team, with a commitment to delivering high-quality work and supporting public service delivery. There will be ample opportunity for personal and professional development, including training relevant to the role. The Council has adopted hybrid working practices which apply to this role, meaning most of the work can be undertaken either in the office, at home, or at another suitable location. There will still be a requirement to visit the office occasionally for certain meetings as needed. For an informal discussion regarding this role, please contact the recruiting manager, Jacob Choudry-Ball, Performance & Insight Manager: [email protected] / 07510187782.
What We Are Looking For From You
We are looking for an individual with strong project management skills, with experience of managing multiple complex or large-scale projects simultaneously. You will have strong communication and writing skills, able to prepare project documentation and reports, and present information clearly and effectively for a range of different audiences, from senior managers to end users. You will have experience of initiating and managing projects which have a focus on the utilisation of data and business intelligence, with an aim to improve organisational performance. A good level of ICT competency will be a pre-requisite, specifically, familiarity with Microsoft Office. Experience of more specialist tools, such as Microsoft Visio, Microsoft Project, or Microsoft Power BI would also be advantageous. Most importantly, we encourage applications from individuals who are passionate about public service improvement and enjoy working as part of an effective team.
