We have an exciting opportunity for a talented and passionate data analyst to join our team at the Children’s Commissioner for England.
The Children’s Commissioner promotes and protects the rights of children, including a special responsibility for children living in care and away from home. Some of our recent work has included measuring the scale of childhood vulnerability in England, analysing stability within the care system, investigating how many children are falling through the gaps in the education system, and looking into the provision of children’s mental health services. We publish reports on a wide range of topics, from the impact of the digital world on children’s lives to the experiences of children locked away in the secure estate.
The Children’s Commissioner is independent of both Government and Parliament and has unique data-gathering powers to help us to shine a light on the issues important to children.
This role will be within our evidence team. You will provide support to our growing programme of collation and analysis of survey and administrative data on vulnerable children. You will use your initiative and passion for numbers to apply your technical skills to analyse complex survey or administrative data. You will also help to strengthen our vulnerability database, ensuring that we continue to provide the best possible view of childhood vulnerability. Finally, you will ensure that the Evidence Team can respond quickly to requests for analysis, providing the Children’s Commissioner with the timely data she needs to deliver effective policy, media and public affairs work.
The successful candidate will possess a degree or higher with a large quantitative/statistical component, and at least one year’s post-education experience of relevant quantitative analysis in a professional environment. This is a permanent post but we would welcome applications from candidates seeking a secondment.
