People Systems Analyst - JRN 20498
 

With two culture packed cities, award-winning coastlines and unspoilt countryside on the doorstep, Northumbria offers an amazing place to live and work.

 

Our teams are loyal and enthusiastic, driven to provide an outstanding service to the communities of Northumbria Police. It is for this reason we put our people first.

 

We continue to invest in infrastructure that will transform our processes – from human resources systems to a new force-wide communications, information, and intelligence platform.

 

A high-quality workforce is fundamental to the continued success of Northumbria Police and the People Systems and Acquisition Team are committed to defining, recruiting, retaining, and developing the right number and mix of people to deliver effective policing. 

 

We are excited to be able to offer an amazing opportunity to come and join us as a People Systems Analyst in our award-winning People Services Department.

 

 Why #TeamNP?

 

 In return for your dedication and experience, we offer up to 29 days leave, excluding bank holidays. 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. Also, to take care of your physical and mental well-being, we’ve invested in extensive paid sick leave, trained mental health first aiders on-site, an employee advice service and access to gyms in some stations.

 

 What will I be doing?

 

In this role you will gather, analyse and interpret a range of people metrics, including performance measures, demographic factors, capability and deployment activity. You will be required to provide an analytical view on a range of people data, and you will produce detailed insightful reports on the workforce to inform decision making and assist planning. The ability to compose comprehensive and insightful reports at a range of levels and perspectives whilst working to strict timelines is therefore essential. 

 

You will be instrumental in developing a thorough understanding of the workforce and will develop and manage a set of tools and processes to do this. You will evidence your work through research, consultation, analysis and your own professional insight. You will build and develop relationships across the entire organisation to secure an understanding of opportunities, resource pressures and competing priorities. 

 

What do I need?

 

To be successful in this role you will hold a good understanding of business processes and will demonstrate your ability to systematically analyse a wide range of information. You will have demonstrable experience of composing evidence-based reports in a narrative form and demonstrate your ability to deliver accurate and timely outputs in a fast-paced environment.  

 

You will be an investigative and analytical thinker who is able to demonstrate creative interpretation of data. You must be an advanced user of Microsoft Excel and will be able to use a variety of formulas to build and maintain complex workbooks, future proofing these to enable updates to be provided quickly. You will have an ability to use a range of computer-based systems including large relational databases and workbooks and you will need to be a fast learner.  

 

You should be able to use analytical skills to transform large and complex sets of data, from different sources, into simple, meaningful and influential workbooks, dashboards and presentations that allows the user to quickly understand the force’s position on people metrics and workforce data in order to aid decision making.

 

Experience of building dynamic dashboards using data visualisation tools such as Power BI and Qlik Sense is advantageous.
