This role has a starting salary of £41,931 per annum, based on a 36 hour working week.
We are looking for a Technical Business Analyst to help and inspire the organisation to improve the governance and management of its data.
At Surrey, our vision is to help create better lives, a better place and a county where no-one is left behind. To help deliver this vision we are committed to transforming the way the council manages and uses data and creates insight.
We're establishing a new data team to deliver our SCC Data Strategy. It's therefore an exciting time to join us as a Business Analyst and be part of shaping the new team and forging links across the organisation.
The data team will work closely with colleagues in Digital and IT with lots of opportunities for joint activities to build your skill set and share your learning with the team. There are also significant opportunities for personal and professional development through the Business Analyst practice community and broader training.
Many of our staff work also work flexibly, including term-time only and so talk to us about what might work for you.
About the role
This is an exciting role for a proactive and innovative Technical Business Analyst who enjoys applying their skills to variety of tasks.
The projects you will be involved in will be wide ranging from: helping to identify opportunities where master data will bring organisation benefit; to investigating data and process issues; and, undertaking data discovery work. There will be several projects running in parallel and so you will be comfortable working at pace and organising your time. You will be well supported and offered the training and coaching required to undertake the work.
The role will involve engaging with stakeholders from across the organisation and you will build trust and rapport quickly and effectively. You will be communicating back to the team and back out to the stakeholders about what you have discovered.
You will be a team player who has some previous experience of working as a Business Analyst on data, digital or technical projects. You will be experienced in gathering interpreting and using data to generate requirements and actionable steps to deliver projects and improve systems and processes.
You understand the relationship between poorly designed business processes, data capture processes and bad data quality. This will be a hands-on role with an expectation that you are confident in using workshops to document and improve business processes and data capture processes. You will also have some familiarity with building data models and documenting data flows. You have some exposure to data dictionaries, data warehouses, proficiency in Visio (or similar) and using SQL (or equivalent) to manipulate and explore data.
You'll be passionate about the end user and consider their needs to be at the centre of everything we design. You will have the ability to apply different techniques to elicit business or data requirements and be able to document and communicate these requirements to other team members. You'll have structured and methodical approach and the ability to distinguish the root cause of a problem from symptoms.
With excellent written and verbal communication skills you will be confident working with diverse groups of stakeholders such as council employees (including technical IT&D staff), elected members, suppliers and residents.
You will be passionate about data and the opportunity it presents for the public sector to improve services to residents.
