In the Kent Public Health Observatory, we are striving to become a centre of excellence for public health intelligence and knowledge management services. We’re looking for a naturally inquisitive, experienced analytics professional who excels at working with others to answer complex questions with evidence-based insights.
Kent County Council is committed to a hybrid working model with flexible hours. We also recognise the importance of maintaining connections via regular team office days. Please note the successful candidate is expected to work from our Maidstone office at least one day per week.
As a senior analyst, you will be responsible for leading projects within our team from start to finish. This will typically involve initial planning with a client, exploring the data, preparing it for analysis, conducting the analysis, drawing conclusions, communicating the findings and seeking feedback how to improve next time. You will have a proactive attitude to problem solving and remain calm under pressure. Using your knowledge of epidemiology, statistics, and health-related datasets, you will ensure that projects are completed to a high standard and add value to the wider purpose. In addition, you will be responsible for line management and supervising other members of the team, guiding their personal development.
We provide a comprehensive training offer and encourage a supportive learning environment to share knowledge between team members. We continually innovate and improve. For example, the team creates reproducible analysis using programming languages such as R and SQL and Power BI for data visualisation. This post also provides the opportunity to learn system dynamic modelling and other systems thinking approaches to understanding problems. Once training is completed, you will assume specific responsibilities for developing the Kent JSNA Cohort model, building bespoke models, and promoting the use of SD modelling across the Integrated Care System.
This post is considered by KCC to be a customer-facing position. The Council therefore has a statutory duty under Part 7 of the Immigration Act (2016) to ensure that post holders have a command of spoken English/Welsh sufficient for the effective performance of the job requirements.
