Data Scientist - JRN 20773
 

The role:

Base Location as required within the Force area including Home Working

 

We are looking for experienced DATA SCIENTIST!

Are you looking for a PERMANENT POSITION?
Do you want to be involved in a crucial business Transformation Change?
Do you want to be part of Digital Policing?
Is your CV ready?

If you have answered yes to the above….please read on!

We are currently entering an exciting new era of technology led change in which data and information plays an essential role and is at the heart of the service the Force delivers.  

We are looking to recruit a Data Scientist who can not only provide effective data modelling and infrastructure solutions but can equally understand the impact of a data failure to the business and support the user through the experience to its resolution.

You will work with end users, Technology Partners and Enterprise Architects alike, to fully understand the challenges faced by the business and appreciate Force data requirements with a view to crafting innovative and effective, conceptual, logical and physical data models to meet those challenges.  

You will be required to translate business requirements into well designed, conceptual, logical and physical data models and structures as well as performing the Extract Transform and Load [ETL] process of data integration between systems.

The data and information solutions that you will deliver and support are critical to the Policing service and when they don’t perform as expected, this can be incredibly stressful for the end user.  

In return for your dedication and experience, we offer 23 days’ leave, excluding bank holidays, increasing to 28 days for 5 years+ service.  We support our people inside and out of work – offering a very competitive pension scheme, childcare vouchers, and discounts on shopping and eating out thanks to the Blue Light Card. And to take care of your physical and mental well-being, we’ve invested in trained mental health first aiders on-site, an employee advice service and access to gyms in some stations.  

What will I be doing?

You will define data integration requirements and perform the Extract, Transform and Load [ETL] process.
You are responsible for creating low level data structures as well as design and implement reusable metadata libraries.   
You will ensure data integrity and quality through effective testing of your data models and through the affective use of policy and procedure, standards, frameworks and tools.

What do I need?

Strong data analysis experience
Experience of meta-data management
Experience of data quality management
Experience of corporate and regulatory compliance
Experience of relational data base technologies; e.g. Oracle, SQL Server
Experience of relational and multi-dimensional data model design
Experience of data mining models and statistical techniques
Knowledge of reference data management
Knowledge of master data management
Knowledge of data life-cycle management
Knowledge of using QDI Compose, Replicate and Catalyst
Knowledge of data interoperability and Integration frameworks and ETL best practice 
Knowledge of Ethical Standards Framework
Experience of using an ITSM tool
Proficient communication skills to bridge the gap between technical and business language to ensure shared understanding and effective solution delivery;
A degree, HND or equivalent qualification, and/or have significant relevant experience.
