Council Lead for Delivery & Analysis
Cornwall is a truly unique place with a unique set of challenges and pressures, so we're looking for people to join our Strategy and Engagement team that can bring creative thinking, build on strong foundations and challenge the status quo. The Strategy and Engagement Service has a team of around 60 staff and sits within the Customer and Support Services Directorate.
We can offer the opportunity to work on high profile strategic initiatives such as the Devolution Deal, the Strategy for Cornwall, the promotion of Cornish as a recognised National Minority Group and the Council's leadership approach across key policy areas as we commence the process of leaving the European Union.
If you'd like to be at the forefront of shaping ground breaking work and changing lives, then take a look at the roles we have on offer. We want people to join our team who will share in our journey of excellence in one of the most beautiful parts of the UK.
Our team is instrumental in delivering the Council priorities and works closely with the political leadership and Council Directors Team to ensure that these priorities are embedded throughout the organisation. The service also works closely with Government on a range of initiatives, including devolution and has an important role in promoting local political priorities.
As the manager of a small team of five Delivery and Analysts Specialists aligned to one of the five Council's Priorities for Cornwall, the post holder is responsible for bringing together of business and customer intelligence in order to provide Council and Duchy-wide oversight of public sector services (directly delivered and commissioned) and facilitate scrutiny and challenge of business performance.
The post holder is the Council's intelligence/analytical 'head of profession' and will oversee the efficient and effective operation of the organisation's analytical work - coordinating the activities of the dispersed internal analysts - and increase and support data sharing with partners to provide a 'single version of the truth' for the Duchy.
One of the key responsibilities is providing expert guidance across the Council on the effective analysis of business and customer data and intelligence to ensure that the organisation and partners make evidence based decisions to target precious financial and human resources in the right areas; recommending a change of course when insight and intelligence would support such a move.
A further key responsibility is to support the Head of Service in enhancing the Council's performance management framework and developing a culture where every member of staff understands the contribution they make to the delivery of the Council's Priorities for Cornwall.
Crucial to this is driving forward a programme of improvement, using Peer Reviews as and when appropriate, sharing the learning and implementing action plans.
