The Home Office is looking for a new head of Data Services & Analytics to lead expert multidisciplinary teams in maintaining, delivering and developing new data products and services improving data quality and the capability to deliver management information.

The role will provide leadership to the Data Services Group, reviewing and re-focusing priorities and activity to ensure that the team develops a reputation as a forward looking, enabling data services and analysis function that operates at pace in support of the Home Office.

As part of the Digital, Data and Technology Profession (DDaT) senior management team, the new post will be responsible for leading the delivery of a suite of data products and services including the Common Data Programme, Home Office Data Analytics Capability, as well as new capabilities required by the operational commands to exploit their data. The role will also help implement APIs to share data between departments and support the new Data and Identity Unit and the Home Office Data Protection Officer with expert advice.

The role requires strong partnerships with senior responsible officers across the Home Office, as well as the other delivery teams in DDaT who are working on programs with complex data management and analysis aspects.

Pete Rose, director Enterprise Services and deputy chief Digital, Data and Technology officer, said, “This is a unique opportunity to join a large and fast-paced Digital, Data and Technology (DDaT) team at a critical time given the enormity and potential of the current agenda as well as the determination of ministers and senior civil servants to transform the way in which government technology is being designed, built and procured. As part of this agenda we are building a radically new capability for DDaT delivery within the Home Office to support our own and national police systems”.

Pete Rose said, “We’ve made good progress to date, and our delivery track record gives credence to our strategy of bringing back ‘in-house’ our key design and architecture decisions, more directly controlling product development, putting users at the heart of our solutions and converging them across the business wherever beneficial”.

Applications close on March 5, with preliminary interviews expected to take place during the week commencing March 12.
