Job Title: Data Analyst
Working For: Crest Advisory Ltd
Salary: Around £25K dependent upon skills and experience
Crest Advisory is a small, vibrant consultancy based in Covent Garden – helping clients think, speak and act clearly within criminal justice. We work with central government, crime commissioners, universities, NGOs and private companies, enabling them to achieve greater impact by marrying policy and technical insight with expertise in communication.
What we are looking for
We are looking for an enthusiastic and collaborative person to join the Crest team as a data analyst. You will have excellent analytical and methodological skills and be able to apply these to a wide range of information and data as it relates to policing and criminal justice.
The role will be varied: you may be asked to analyse crime statistics or interrogate and interpret performance data to understand how police forces are coping with changing demand; to bring together data from across courts, probation and prisons to understand the inter-dependencies between them. Coding skills would be an advantage.
You will have excellent IT skills and be able to present data in a compelling and accessible way for non-experts. You will not be expected to be an expert on criminal justice policy – but curiosity about this area and a keenness to learn are vital.
The role is likely to suit a recent graduate or post-graduate, or someone with relevant experience working in a data analysis role, who is looking for an opportunity to develop their skills within a growing company.
Knowledge of statistical techniques and experience of modelling
Ability to identify and apply the most appropriate analytical methods to different situations
Ability to analyse, interrogate and interpret different datasets
Good communication skills, both written and oral
Excellent IT and presentation skills
Ability to quality assure analytical work and build the capabilities of others
Ability to be part of a wider multi disciplinary team
Good interpersonal skills
Membership of an analytical profession or equivalent experience
Understanding of criminal justice policy
Understanding of qualitative methodologies
Ability to code
You will work from our London office (40 hs per week full-time; a part-time arrangement is possible).
Closing Date: 11 December 2017
Interviews will be held in the week commencing 18th December in central London.
The job starting date is January 2018.
