Head of Data Science and Analysis / Head of Statistics and Data Collection
The Children’s Commissioner’s office is a highly respected independent body that acts as a voice for children in England. It is our job to make sure that the interests and experience of children are understood by politicians and others who make decisions about their lives. Data and evidence play a critical role in this. We have two fantastic opportunities to join our evidence team: Head of Data Science and Analysis and Head of Statistics and Data Collection.
We draw on administrative data, cohort studies, data requests, digital data, surveys of key agencies and the views of children and young people to ensure that the experiences, rights and interests of children and young people are heard and shape policy and practice.
Both roles will be responsible for undertaking, overseeing and/or commissioning high quality analytical work, often at pace and responsive to the needs of policy and public affairs debates. They will present findings to a range of audiences including Parliament, the media, the public, senior civil servants, government analysts, ministers and 10 Downing Street.
These are permanent posts, however, we would welcome applications from within or outside the civil service. We would also consider applications from candidates seeking a loan or secondment.
