Business Insight Manager BLUB84887 - City, York, United Kingdom,

About the role

This is a brand-new interim role that exists to improve data and deliver business intelligence and insight across the organisation. This is as part of a wider transformation programme across the whole organisation to enable the achievement of our organisational outcomes, which contribute to our vision of a prosperous UK without poverty.

This role is perfect for a bright, inquisitive and proactive individual looking to carve their own role and make an impact across the entire organisation. It goes without saying that you'll have experience in an insights or business intelligence role, and preferably in setting up board assurance frameworks or performance scorecards. You'll also need strong commercial acumen and the ability to work independently.

You will succeed if you have a curious mind, a passion for understanding how the organisation ticks and you are able to think creatively and analytically to communicate the 'so what?' value of data, articulating the key messages through meaningful presentations and persuasive arguments that tell a story.

About you

You will have experience of developing, implementing and evolving a data and business insight strategy and plan. Part of that will be building and maintaining robust relationships with a wide range of diverse stakeholders, building trust and establishing credibility in all that you do.

Experience of implementing and using data visualisation tools is seen as a distinct advantage and if you have experience of working within an Agile, matrix managed organisation then so much the better. Whilst a qualification in either project or change management is desirable it is more important that you are able to communicate creatively, effectively sharing the right level and amount of information with the different stakeholder groups.
