Salary: around £28,000 per annum, depending on relevant experience

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.

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