The Role: 

Our Policy, Partnerships and Performance (PPP) division is a part of the Strategy and Communities department, which sits at the heart of the Council’s corporate centre. We are a busy and fast-past division with lead responsibility for the Council’s overarching strategic Anchor Network partnership work: Southwark 2030, co-ordinating whole council improvement oversight such as our recent LGA Corporate Peer Challenge, maintaining and improving the Council-wide strategic policy framework, and providing corporate performance structure and insights.

We are seeking an impactful, critical thinker, with an eye for detail who can become our new Senior Business Intelligence Analyst. You will be a key player in embedding the role of performance as an important lever within an evidence-based culture. You will work closely with IT to develop and refine a long-term data system, ensuring a consistent and simple approach to corporate performance data and intelligence collection. You will also collaborate across departments and services to harness performance data, providing valuable insights for effective delivery, impact evaluation, and decision-making. 

About Southwark: 

“A people powered council, creating a fairer, greener, safer future for all” 

Southwark is home to a diverse community of over 320,000 residents who live in neighbourhoods ranging from Bermondsey and Rotherhithe on the south bank of the River Thames to Peckham, Camberwell and Dulwich. We’re also home to a thriving voluntary sector, world-class health institutions, and high-performing schools. 

The council itself is one of the largest local authority social landlords in the UK and directly manages over 55,000 homes, which are lived in by nearly 40% of Southwark residents. But perhaps the most exciting fact about our council is that it’s powered by people like you.  

Southwark is a values-led council and our beliefs – in the power of people and the vital importance of tackling inequality – define who we are. Being ‘People powered’ means that we recognise the people who work here, at the council and with our partners, and live in our communities are our greatest strength. That’s why collaboration – with residents, partners and colleagues – is at the heart of everything we do and in every decision we make.

About You: 

The ideal candidate should possess extensive knowledge and demonstrable experience in introducing innovative business intelligence concepts and methods. Previous experience in leading initiatives around the use of performance data, particularly in a local government setting, is highly desirable. You should be able to demonstrate a proven track record of engaging with diverse senior stakeholders and team members, driving the completion of products, projects, and team tasks under pressure while encouraging others to meet deadlines.
