Our aim is for everyone in the National Church Institutions (NCIs) to feel that they belong, and are valued for who they are and what they contribute. Together, our people contribute in different ways towards our common purpose, whichever NCI they work in and whatever their background.
Voluntary Income in The Church of England is over £800M a year, and funds 75% of the cost of parish ministry. The Church of England National Giving Strategy 2020-2024 is investing over £7.5M in enabling giving and encouraging generosity within its churches.
This is a significant opportunity for a data analyst to develop and oversee a range of data analysis projects in the National Giving Team to support, monitor and evaluate the delivery of the National Giving Strategy.
As Giving Data Lead, you will provide evidence that will inform key decisions and support giving initiatives at diocesan and national level. This will include statistical analysis to help us understand the performance of projects and marketing campaigns as well as using data science techniques to help the team set and test targets within a monitoring and evaluation framework.
You will also be responsible for developing data tools and calculators that can be used by churches across the country to help grow giving.
In addition to technical skills you will need excellent communications skills to adapt to different communication challenges, such as explaining complex data findings to non-technical stakeholders, discussing high level strategy impact indicators with directors and working in detail with the team for in-depth analysis of project progress.
