Data Insight Assistant Manager

Originally formed in 1992 by Government as an independent, impartial and not for profit company the Energy Saving Trust provides advice to communities, households and organisations on how they can reduce carbon emissions and save money by using less energy. In November 2011, we changed our corporate structure and from this was born the Energy Saving Trust Foundation; a social enterprise with charitable status. Whilst our legal status changed, our key objectives didn’t and we’re still the leading voice in encouraging the sustainable use of energy and reduction of carbon emissions.

We have an exciting opportunity for you to join the Energy Saving Trust’s Data Insight team where you will be working on innovative and ground breaking projects to understand the potential for carbon reduction in the UK building stock and to improve the delivery of national carbon reduction schemes.

The projects you will be working on involve the delivery of data and analysis to a range of clients including central and local government, energy suppliers, manufacturers, retailers and other organisations. These organisations use EST data to target their energy efficiency, carbon reduction and fuel poverty programmes and to develop effective policies.

The main programme you will be working on is ‘Home Analytics’. Home Analytics and Home Analytics Scotland bring together a wide range of datasets on the UK housing stock. Using this data, through the application of advanced statistical modelling and geo-spatial analysis, we are able to model valuable information on the potential for carbon reduction of every address in the GB building stock. You will contribute to this analysis, providing both analytical capability and subject matter expertise. You will also assist in the management of the team which includes a number of external contractors in the fields of data warehousing, statistical modelling and GIS mapping.

As an analytical expert, the role will require excellent problem solving and data analysis skills and the ability to communicate technical information in a clear and engaging manner. As a content expert, you will be required to quickly develop an excellent understanding of the policy and delivery context for energy efficiency, renewable energy and fuel poverty programmes in order to deliver effective insight.

The job will involve working daily with a range of expert consultants in their respective fields of Big Data Analytics, statistical modelling and GIS mapping and you will gain valuable training and experience in the uses of specialist database software including IBM Cognos, statistical packages such as SPSS and ‘R’ and ESRI ArcGIS mapping programmes.

In addition to Home Analytics you will occasionally be required to work on a range of other bespoke projects for clients. These projects are usually data focused but can often encompass elements of policy analysis and strategy development, particularly for public sector clients.

For more information please visit EST’s website for the job description by clicking on ‘More information’ below.

This is a fixed term position for one year. Applications close 9am 15 September 2014.

To apply, please forward your curriculum vitae (2 pages only) and cover letter (one page) to recruitment@est.org.uk, citing the reference number you are applying for in the subject line.

Only people with the right to work in the UK may apply for this position.
