Job Details

Are you an experienced data science professional? Are you looking for a challenging new opportunity which will truly make a difference in a leading national charity?

We are looking for a Data Scientist to join our team in this newly created 18 month fixed term contract.

Your role will be to plan, design, and deliver data analysis activities to draw insight from a range of sources which can be used to inform policy, research, campaigns, and service delivery. Using data science, you will help design new solutions to complex challenges facing the armed forces community and those who support them, and be at the heart of building and understanding the evidence base to inform RBL’s future strategy.

Come and be part of the leading Armed Forces charity, making a difference to the lives of those who have served to keep us safe and protect our way of life.

Reporting to the Head of Policy and Research, you will support teams across RBL to collect, analyse, and use data in ways that enable effective, efficient understanding of needs of the armed forces community, what is being delivered to meet these needs, the impact this makes, and where improvements can be made.

Some key responsibilities will include:

  • Design, advise on, and conduct accurate, timely analysis of data from sources across RBL, using a range of statistical tools and techniques
  • Explore, analyse, and visualise data from external sources including national surveys, studies, and databases
  • Monitor the latest developments in data science and create innovative proposals for new ways to create, combine, analyse, and use data
  • Draw conclusions and recommendations from data, transforming data into insights that help address complex problems and inform decision-making, and present these in a range of formats
  • Advise on design and define data requirements for future information collection systems and research, to enable deeper and practical insights for future service planning, policy influencing, and campaigns
  • Work closely with Campaigns, Policy & Research colleagues to maximise use of internal and external data to inform and evidence policy positions, asks, and campaigns
  • Develop relationships with research, analysis, and data stakeholders, for example in academic institutions, research agencies, charities, government departments, other public bodies, the Armed Forces community, and data science professionals across a range of sectors.  

You will be contracted to your home address, and you will perform most of your work remotely there using our collaboration tools to work with colleagues, with occasional travel (incl. for monthly team meetings) to our London Head Office hub.

Should you wish to explore a hybrid London working contract (to include an additional London Supplement to salary), this can be discussed at interview stage.

We also welcome applications from individuals seeking a more flexible working hours arrangement, which can be discussed at interview stage.

Here at RBL, we support our people and their wellbeing, with a package including generous paid holiday allowance and pension scheme contributions, and a range of optional benefits and discounts.

For more detailed information about the role, please see our Vacancy Information Pack attached to our direct advert.

RBL is committed to creating a diverse and inclusive organisation, reflecting the diversity of the armed forces community and of wider society. We welcome applications from people of all backgrounds and personal characteristics.

Closing Date: Sunday 9th June 2024

Interview Date(s): virtual interviews to be held week commencing 17th June 2024.
