Are you curious and do you always ask why? Do you like to find meaning in data? If you’re excited by the possibilities of using data and intelligence to improve outcomes for children and families, we’d love to hear from you!

An exciting opportunity has arisen within Children's Services for an enthusiastic, versatile and self-motivated Policy and Performance Officer. You will work alongside other colleagues to support and embed a fully integrated Quality Assurance & Performance Management Framework to ensure strong performance and continual improvement within operational teams. This role will include undertaking analyses, tracking performance, interpretating and visualising data, and reporting results to managers, leaders and other key decision makers. The primary focus of this role will be to support Amber Valley and Erewash operational teams. You will be primarily based within these districts with regular visits to County Hall in Matlock along with some hybrid working.

What will you bring to the role? You’ll have experience of analysing data or managing business performance. You’ll have good excel skills. You might even have experience with power BI or another visualisation tool but this is not essential. You’ll have experience of bringing together a wide range of intelligence and then uncovering meaning within that data. You’ll be able to tell a story so teams and managers can understand what the data is telling them and how they can use this to continually improve. You will have experience of developing and maintaining effective working relationships with a variety of stakeholders including staff at all levels in the organisation and partner agencies.

If you're educated to degree level or equivalent and have excellent IT, communication and presentation skills, we would like to hear from you.
