The Suffolk Office of Data & Analytics (SODA) is an exciting, innovative function, set up by Suffolk's public service organisations, with the purpose of developing new, joined-up insights to inform policy and service design and delivery.
SODA is one of only a dozen similar efforts across the country. Therefore, this role sits within an innovative and pioneering function that brings together public service organisations, ensuring that data and information is shared and used for the benefit of all Suffolk's residents.
The topics that the postholder will be covering are usually highly relevant to current and future social, economic, and environmental challenges with SODA's work covering a wide range of areas, including economic growth, social care, health, criminal justice, housing, environment and many more. The role also offers excellent opportunities to understand a range of different organisations and meet a range of different professionals.
The holder of this post will be key to providing the best insight, knowledge, and intelligence we possibly can. You will need to bring strong statistical analytical abilities; strong investigative skills including the ability to interpret data and other types of information; effective communication and partnership working skills; the ability to produce high quality written and pictorial information which can communicate complex data and issues in a clear way to a non-specialist audience; and a passion for data-driven problem-solving.
SODA is hosted out of Suffolk County Council, Public Health.
