Here at Serco, within our Asylum Accommodation and Support Services Contract (AASC) we focus on assisting individuals through the asylum system, ensuring that vulnerable asylum seekers have access to the support they need along with a high standard of accommodation. 


The Analytics and Performance team is a new function within the AASC contract and due to significant growth, we are looking for Senior Analysts to join our team. The department will be responsible for producing accurate, current, and insightful Management information to provide all contractual, external and internal functional, performance and insight reporting.  The team is also responsible for optimising service performance, driving adoption, effective business change, and ultimately helping to develop a data-driven organisation.


You will work with Serco Group Information Technology (IT) and Management Information (MI) teams to understand business processes and requirements, identify constraints and opportunities, and recommend optimal solutions. This will include data design, data analysis, data reporting platforms, analytics platforms, knowledge management and reporting support services.


You will be expected to effectively communicate and present clear information to both internal and external stakeholders, across a multi-site environment, using your strong interpersonal skills and the ability to influence, persuade and communicate at all levels.


A team of Analysts will report into you therefore relevant management experience is required as well as your demonstrable experience of building strong relationships alongside your analytical experience. You will successfully deliver accountabilities such as:


  • Translate business requirements into data analytics designs, including data exploration, data analysis, presentation queries, report/dashboard, and analysis models.
  • Advise on reporting and analytics tools selection for individual requirements including consultation with business teams on how to build reports and analytics to understand the what, why and what-if scenarios.
  • Create easy to understand, interactive and intuitive dashboards and business reports
  • Develop rapid prototypes and analytical models from various data sets to explore new business insights, using iterative development with close engagement with business stakeholders.
  • Demonstrate tools and data analytics subject matter expertise to provide coaching and guidance to drive self-service capability development within the department and wider business - Developing guides, training videos, briefings, and presentations.
  • Using a Continuous Improvement and change centric approach to identify, recommend, and implement positive change.
  • Contribute to the Power BI platform strategy and functional roadmaps to ensure the analytics and performance service remains technically appropriate to meet business requirements.
  • Maintain professional and technical knowledge by constantly scanning/reviewing the market, attending educational workshops; reviewing professional publications; establishing personal networks.


What you'll need to do the role


Collaborative cross team working is a big part of this functioning role, so you must have demonstrable experience of working with cross-functional teams and various stakeholders, including analytics, design/user experience, and user enablement.


Naturally, you'll need to be an excellent stakeholder manager along with the drive and capability to work in a fast-paced agile environment - continuously review the business needs, refine priorities, outline milestones and deliverables and identify opportunities and risks.


Your analytical experience must include Power BI and Excel experience as a minimum but the more analytical and change management experience you can bring is a clear advantage (ie working knowledge of LEAN Six Sigma).


Travel will be required for this role across sites and full flexibility is required as this may be at short notice.
