If you love data and you want a really interesting challenge then we have something pretty unique as we embark our journey with our Local Authority. The Digital Cornwall programme brought together the existing Digital Improvement and Customer Access Programmes, to deliver across three core areas.
- A Digitally Ready Cornwall – where we aspire for every resident of Cornwall, who could use technology, to have the confidence and means to do so by 2021
- Changing How We Work – to ensure every employee and our Members have the appropriate access to and confidence in using improved technology for themselves and customers
- Changing How We Deliver to the Customer – to ensure all our customers are able to access high quality services through the most effective channel to meet their needs.
This is one of the biggest things happening in our local authority right now and is linked to other council agendas such as becoming carbon neutral by 2030. It will help realise the potential of data in Cornwall, bringing it together in a centralised data warehouse to provide invaluable insight both into what we do and how we do it, in turn this will inform and support the future of Cornwall.
Cornwall is a unique county, we are 125 miles long with a population which is very diverse in terms of the location spread. Cornwall also has the most agricultural land of any UK county as well as the most hospital wards outside of London and Manchester. With 800 different data sources, there is a wealth of information which is a real gold mine. Public health alone has 78 data sources with 50 lines each, split by geography. All of that information comes into the council in various different formats and working with Headforwards, the council has big plans to transform the way this data is used. You can play a pivotal role in the future of Cornwall and its people by working to make this data open and available in a secure way, to the people who can use it to make a difference.
Your knowledge of IT and Data will support the BI Strategy and you will work with both the BI team and the Business to deliver this digital programme. You will be critical in supporting the business to make the best decisions and translating back to the BI team as to what is required and the relevant priorities. You will support the team coordination across the delivery, including delivery of the collateral in support of project and delivery governance. You’ll be able to unblock and keep things moving. You’ll report back to the business on progress, blockers and achievements.
We are dealing with a lot of data and some of this relates to vulnerable people and children, care records. You need to have a comprehensive understanding of GDPR and you need to know about governance. Someone with an Adult Social Care background would be a great fit for this role. You will support the initial integration of identified data sets ranging from internal sources systems to external data feeds into a cloud based relational enterprise data warehouse. You will be working with the business to identify and produce management information from this centralised data store using a range of data visualisation tools. The delivery is primarily supported by a Microsoft first approach. Considerations must be given to the initiation, formation and standardisation of best practices to support ETL procedures, data quality measurement, data retention, master data management and role management.
