If you are an experienced Business Analyst and are looking to develop your career with a Government transformation and technology focus, then this could be the role for you.
The role provides the opportunity to use your skills to help lead and define business requirements at the forefront of exciting changes and developments in data handling and statistics production. As a senior business analyst, you’ll play a key role in delivering an exciting work programme to completely transform the significant portfolio of statistical data products and services produced by the GSS.
The main objective of the role is to lead a team of business analysts on this data transformation journey which will make the data suitable for automation and makes datasets across a dataset family (or range of dataset families) consistent and so suitable for integration or comparison across the GSS.
The position holder will work towards supporting the extract, transform and load of data from its original formats into this standardised format using various techniques including python. The final representation of the data is based on a series of internationally agreed standards, developed and maintained by the World Wide Web Consortium: principally the RDF Data Cube Vocabulary for the statistical dataset and observations mentioned previously, and the Simple Knowledge Organisation System (SKOS) for the classification schemes or codelists.

The post holder will also provide agile product support including acting as the project scrum master to ensure the multidisciplinary team is working together and delivering outcomes in accordance to each sprint plan.
