We’re looking for an experienced Data Analyst to join our National Environmental Assessment Service (NEAS). NEAS manages the environmental assessments and consents for the flood projects that the Agency builds. We’re investing £2.5 billion between now and 2021 that will reduce flood risk to 300,000 homes across the UK, improving the environment and protecting transport and businesses. It’s an exciting time to be joining the team and the work that you’ll be doing will directly help to save wildlife, livelihoods and homes.
Your creative problem solving abilities will be put to good use in helping to deliver the national Flood and Coastal Risk Management (FCRM) programme. Working closely with other teams, you’ll be involved in monitoring progress, identifying gaps in delivery and data, and taking action when needed.
You’ll need to develop strong relationships with both internal and external partners in order to gather information. You’ll help to produce a range of reports, many of which will be discussed at management meetings, and will help to guide and advise management on important decisions.
The role offers a lot of variety and the team is open to developing it further around new skills and facets where you see fit.
If you like working as part of a team and have a keen eye for detail this could be a great fit for you. Ideally, you’ll have practical experience of working in the data and information management industries, and be skilled at analysing and interpreting information. Prior experience in a project management role is a bonus.
An important part of this role involves being able to challenge management and handle difficult conversations. Good communication skills are vital, especially with those at a higher level.
We are the Environment Agency. We protect and improve the environment. Acting to reduce the impacts of a changing climate on people and wildlife is at the heart of everything we do. We reduce the risks to people, properties and businesses from flooding and coastal erosion. We work closely with a wide range of partners to ensure a sufficient water supply and to reduce the risk of flooding, protecting and improving air, land and water quality. And we work closely with businesses to help them comply with environmental regulations.
You can enjoy flexible working and holidays. Primarily the role is based in Lincoln but could be based in Peterborough or Leeds if it suits.
If you’re keen to learn and develop, there are plenty of opportunities to develop within NEAS and the Environment Agency. Training is fully encouraged and programmes and plans are laid out for each employee. A minimum of 10 days of training is offered as you develop into the role.
