Job description

We are looking for a Data and information Manager and Analyst with a good mix of technical, analytical, and non-technical skills and expertise.

The purpose of this role is to build, develop and run a stronger and collaborative data and information function that support analysis, insight and effective decision making.

  • Establish standardised data collection and reporting processes for project information, defining data models that ensure consistency and facilitate collaboration between PMO teams, maintaining analytical rigour from a number of different systems and data sources.
  • Work closely with PDS PMO, SEPMO and project delivery teams to understand the information and processes required to work effectively and collaboratively, and to enable the generation of evidence-based insight to senior stakeholders such as the Strategic Portfolio Board (SPB).
  • Oversee and manage the integrity and quality of our information, creating a single source of truth for key project data, ensuring standards are followed, facilitating ease of access and driving data quality through the promotion of user-centred experiences.
  • Identify problems, spot opportunities, and develop solutions to meet business needs, acting as an expert source of advice and support for the PMO community in data models and standards, analytical tools, techniques and best practice.

Person specification

To be successful in this role you will demonstrate:

  • Evidence of creating, defining, or consolidating data-driven solutions to real-world problems, ideally in support of projects and programmes, with a track record of creating impact through the use of data and insight (e.g. Power BI, PMO tooling)
  • Understanding of relational data models (e.g. SQL)
  • Strong interpersonal, influencing and relationship-building skills with the ability to establish positive and productive working relationships, confidently challenge and engage with people at all levels within the organisation including senior leaders
  • Highly developed written and verbal communication skills, with the ability to communicate clearly and explain ideas in a way that decision makers understand and can act on, with a focus on quality, insight and solutions
  • Strong organisational and project management skills and attention to detail, with knowledge and practical experience of a range of qualitative and quantitative analytical techniques (e.g., technical and data analysis systems, theory, research, behavioural insight and other research methods)
  • Ability to work successfully within a team, while upholding the values of equality, diversity, and inclusion and taking ownership of a PMO function to deliver high quality work that reflects the diversity and needs of customers, stakeholders and service users.
