It is an incredible time to join the Office for National Statistics in a leadership role. As the UK's largest independent producer of official statistics, with data capability at the very core of our business, we are generating analysis and insight to support key challenges of our time. And we are providing information that is essential to inform society, improve lives and shape our future.

The key responsibilities for the Director of Data Growth and Operations and as ONS' Chief Data Officer, are to build and execute a new vision for the directorate, delivering organisational change to achieve its ambition to grow at scale the volume of data available for statistical and analytical use by the ONS analytical community and external parties through the Integrated Data Service. You will be accountable for ONS's Data Strategy and the maintenance and curation of data products. You will drive the maturity of the data journey, build presence and influence in government and support the Director General alongside other Directors in the effective and efficient leadership of the Data Capability Group

The role would suit a range of professional expertise given the breadth of the responsibilities, but you will need sufficient understanding of the challenges of using administrative and alternative data for a range of purposes to lead specialists within the Directorate. The successful candidate will also be able to demonstrate experience in leadership, stakeholder engagement and communication, change management as well as data and technical skills.
