Maternity cover for ten months from mid-October 2017
The role and requirements
The Local Government Association supports, promotes, and improves local government. We work to influence government policy and support councils to deliver effectively for their communities.
The Research and Information Team is looking for a fixed-term Data Analyst who can design and deliver research, and data and analytic services. The successful post-holder will be a key part of the team that delivers evidence for the LGA’s policy development, support and lobbying work, and delivers our LG Inform data service to authorities. Our work is widely used within the organisation and often features in the media.
It’s essential that you have very good survey and quantitative skills, and are confident working with data. Experience of qualitative research or of working with financial data would also be an advantage. We are looking for a team player with good organisational abilities, and who can deliver projects successfully.
The successful candidate will be expected to take on a very varied and wide-ranging portfolio of work to support and promote local authorities and help them to self-improve.
The LGA is currently based in Layden House, Farringdon (zone 1), but will be moving back to 18 Smith Square, Westminster once refurbishment is complete in autumn 2017.
Closing date: 5pm, 1 September 2017
Interviews: 15 September 2017
The LGA values diversity and encourages applications from all sections of the community
