About the Environment Agency
If you’re part of the Environment Agency, you’re part of the solution. Working with us means protecting and improving the environment for generations to come, tackling issues of national importance across a huge variety of disciplines. Our responsibilities span major industry regulation, flood defences, land contamination, water quality, fisheries, and conservation. Such a broad scope of work calls for diverse, multi-skilled teams and exceptional leadership: together, we’ll promote sustainable growth, tackle climate change, and secure a better future for everyone.
Your role with us
As a Data Analyst, you’ll play a key role in our ambitious multi-billion six-year programme to protect 336,000 homes and non-residential properties from flooding and coastal erosion. Joining our Data Analysis and Reporting Team (DART), you’ll help to create new, high-performing business intelligence tools to support the delivery programme. Our focus is on the automation of data as we move away from “grey IT” solutions and towards more agile ways of working. You can expect to collate and analyse business and management information, produce dashboards, help develop models and modelling techniques, and assist in the development of data management practices. We are a multi-skilled team, keen on helping each other grow in their ability.
You’re likely to have a solid background in developing and delivering business information using data analytics. We look for highly organised problem-solvers who combine flexibility with resilience. You must be ready to acquire new technical skills as well as share the skills you have. As a minimum, you will be highly proficient in using Excel (including cleaning, processing and visualising data). Additional skills in Power BI, FME (ETL), Azure SQL database and Python would be welcome, as would familiarity with a recognised project management methodology. Good communication skills are essential.
Your benefits with us
You will benefit from a culture that embraces difference and includes everyone, where you will feel supported and trusted to do the right thing. We will invest in you and allow you to grow and shape your career. What’s more, you’ll be able to have access to our great benefits package, including generous annual leave, an excellent pension, flexible working arrangements and the opportunity to be part of a variety of staff networks.
We are fully committed to having an inclusive workforce to reflect the communities we serve. To achieve this, we welcome applications from all backgrounds regardless of race, sexual orientation, or religion. We also welcome applications for flexible working patterns.
