We are offering a new and exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic, resourceful, and motivated leader to join us as a Senior Analysis Manager in the data and analytics function of Norfolk and Suffolk Constabularies.

Analysis and research have never been more valuable in policing and have a direct impact on the front-line fight against threat, harm and risk. As such, we are looking for someone with a passion for data and analytics and a commitment to great leadership to join our analysis management team. We are at the heart of identifying and responding to immediate threats in our communities, helping the organisation to plan as effectively as possible for the future. Alongside our wider policing family, you will be critical to driving activities in order to keep our communities safe.

Reporting to the Head of Analytics and Insight, you will provide direction to three analytical teams (operational, performance, and strategic analysis) delivering a range of high-quality, critical products. In addition, as a member of the wider management team you will play an important role in developing and delivering our strategy on evolving data and analytics.

We are looking for candidates with strong analytical and leadership skills who can effectively deliver our strategy. Someone who can provide professional guidance, identify and solve problems, implement change in order to improve and develop, and above all has exceptional communication skills.  

Wherever you have worked previously, we recognise the value that different experiences can bring to policing and so welcome applications from any background. You will have access to sports and social clubs, blue light discounts, an attractive pension scheme, eligibility for flexible working schemes, and award winning wellbeing support services. You will also be eligible to apply to become a hybrid home-based worker. 

If you are the person for this role, we want to hear from you. If you think you may not have all the necessary skills but are inspired by what you have read and feel you can make a difference with your experience, don’t let this stop you – get in touch.
