At Swindon Borough Council, we understand what matters to our residents: an affordable home, good education, job opportunities and quality of life in a great location, as one of the UK’s fastest growing towns.

That’s why we’re working with partners to deliver our ambitious vision for Swindon so that the borough continues to thrive in the future and benefits from well-managed growth, investment and regeneration.

We now have an excellent opportunity for a Performance Analyst to join our small and friendly Corporate Performance Team - with the chance to progress, shape and challenge our service. 

About the role

In this key position you will carry out processing of data and data analysis for the Troubled Families programme, compile statistics and complete performance analysis work for the borough’s Restorative Youth Services, and give Analyst support to teams in the Children’s Services directorate.  You will also provide data and statistical information to staff, senior managers and elected members, as well as to Government departments.

Working as part of the Performance, Intelligence and Insight team, you will contribute to the development of performance analysis to meet changing business requirements.  The Performance, Intelligence and Insight team is small team that is passionate about getting the most insight from our data.  You’ll get the opportunity to learn a range of skills in data analysis and presentation and see how data is used in action across a wide range of Council services.

We are forward thinking and looking for new talent and ideas, therefore this is a great opportunity for you to challenge and shape our service, in an organisation that truly makes a difference to the local community. 

We are focused in supporting your professional development & offer award winning leadership development programmes as well as coaching and mentoring networks. 

This role is 37 hours per week but we operate an agile working policy, allowing you to manage your own diary and work flexibly, including off-site/remote working.  The appointment will be on a fixed-term basis to 31/3/2021, with the possibility of continuation thereafter, subject to Government funding.
