The National Youth Agency is delighted to be recruiting for a Data Analyst
What we do
All young people deserve a productive, fulfilling future. Society needs the spark and energy of young people to make it tick, yet somehow thousands of young people feel blocked by the complex, sometimes disheartening challenges the modern world throws at them.
Youth work is the best methodology to unlock young people’s potential by providing high quality support and opportunities. Skilled youth workers build relationships that support young people to explore their personal, social, and educational development. Youth work enables young people to develop their voice, influence, and place within society.
As the national body for youth work, NYA has a dual function. We are the professional, statutory, and regulatory body (PSRB) responsible for qualifications, quality standards and safeguarding for youth work and services in England. In line with our charity mission and aims, we also champion youth work through research, advocacy, campaigns, and programmes.
About the Role
Our Data Analyst will be critical in ensuring the NYA can better understand the complex and varied youth work sector and keep abreast of changing trends and challenges that affect youth work providers and young people. They will thrive in a rapidly changing charity using their initiative, and technical skills to help develop and analyse complex survey or administrative data collected through the Youth Work Census, the Youth Worker Register and other NYA and public sources. The role is central to delivering data, knowledge and insight that supports an evidence-based culture and embedding evaluation into organisational development and our work programmes.
The Data Analyst will work as part of a team to inform and develop large scale programmes of work, such as the Youth Work Census, and will lead on discrete projects, communicating results and delivering accessible technical briefings to colleagues. They will respond quickly to requests for data and analysis from colleagues in business development, policy, and operational roles and to the senior leadership team, to ensure they have the information needed to inform their work.
- Act as the lead data specialist for the NYA.
- Work with colleagues to address specific queries and support projects.
- Create technical briefings to a high standard that support our broader activities.
- Develop technical reports and analysis using digital tools (Power BI).
- At least one year’s relevant experience of carrying out quantitative data analysis within a professional environment.
- Experience of the development and use of quantitative data collection methods, including online surveys.
- Experience of analysing large, complex datasets.
- Experience writing up technical analysis into accessible briefings reports for a non-technical audience.
- Experience of delivering projects, maintaining project management documentation, taking ownership for delivering to time, identifying and mitigating risks and developing contingencies where required.
