BRC Data Scientist - JRN 20825
 

The role:
Base Location as required within the Force area including Home Working
Fixed Term Contract – immediate start until End June 2022

Northumbria Police is entering an exciting new era of technology led change in which data and information play a key role and older technology is being retired in favour of newer, more advanced solutions.  This includes the introduction of a new suite of key operational systems to manage Command & Control, Crime, Intelligence, Case and Custody that will replace the Force’s current solution.     

To support this, the ICT department would like to recruit a capable, experienced and motivated Data Scientist to support the back record conversion of the data that is to be migrated out of the existing Force operational system into these new technologies.

You will provide advice and direction on the data validation strategy as well as processing data through a test harness to support data quality validation.   You will perform root cause analysis into SQL and XML data formatting issues and support the creation of data tables and affiliated quality testing.       

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 and create low level data structures.   

You will work with End Users, Analysts and Developers to fully understand the challenges faced by the data migration process for the Back Record Conversion project and support the data validation and load process through SQL queries and scripts to validate the ETL process.    

You will ensure data integrity and quality through effective testing of your data models and through the effective 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 data modelling, source to target mapping and preparing SQL using mapping documents
Experience of corporate and regulatory compliance
Experience of SQL queries and scripting as well as XML data formatting
