Lloyd’s Register Foundation is an independent global charity with a unique structure and an important mission: engineering a safer world.
We reduce risk and enhance the safety of the critical infrastructure on which modern society relies, addressing some of the world’s biggest challenges, supporting the best evidence and insight, and through building global partnerships. Our unique structure comes from the fact that we own a significant trading company, Lloyd’s Register (LR). We share the same mission and work together to make the world a safer place.
We are looking for a data analyst to join our team based in London (with home and flexible working) to support data analysis and visualisation for global research projects. The Foundation is committed to diversity and to an inclusive working environment for all employees. Join us in making a difference.
The data analyst undertakes data analysis and uses creativity and technical expertise to visualise and communicate findings in creative ways. The role is part of the Foundation’s global safety evidence insight centre, and the data from our World Risk Poll will provide a major source of input. The Poll provides opportunities for novel data analysis, and collaboration with academics and other parties.
Working across the Foundation the analyst will also work with a broad range of safety data to inform the future direction of our challenge areas and provide society with evidence-based information, generating an inspiring narrative about hypotheses that can be tested through our grants programme, and about interventions that work.
