This is an exciting opportunity and a newly formed role within the IT & Data Department. The successful candidate will bring enthusiasm, attention to detail and a robust work ethic to the team to provide support in the processing and management of the data we hold.

We hold a significant amount of data and information on our parishes, populations, property, finances and leadership. We are looking for a people-person who is organised and has excellent attention to detail with a pragmatic approach to the use of data. You will be someone who can proactively support the quality of our data entry and reporting, evaluating and identifying where system enhancements are required.

These include:

  • Ensure the data input is accurate, up to date, robust and fit for use in reporting and decision making.
  • Update our databases with data from parishes in particular.
  • Ensuring data entry procedures are complied with and that sufficient checking mechanisms are in place to keep the data accurate and up to date.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of UK Data Protection law requirements and work to ensure that all systems and processes are compliant with this.
  • Collaborating in and suggesting new ways of data collection and data entry that will improve the integrity of our data.
  • Supporting parishes to improve their data quality and timeliness of reporting local information to meet national and diocesan standards and requirements. Occasional parish visits may be required.
  • Producing maps with MapInfo software as required (training will be provided).
  • Supporting the development of management information and reporting systems to assist managers in delivering their objectives.
  • Supporting departments and senior staff in the production of regular reports.

You will have a data related qualification or relevant work experience. In addition, you should be confident in working with different systems and databases; have the ability to collate information together in single reports; and have excellent attention to detail, particularly when preparing documents and entering data.

The ability to communicate well by phone, in writing and face to face with colleagues is essential. You will be able to confidently work autonomously and be proactive in making suggestions and improvements within a busy, friendly environment. A real joy and passion for the disciplines of data quality is important.
