Data Assurance Manager Role Profile.docx
 

L&Q have implemented a corporate Data Governance Framework to manage the way we collect, use and share data throughout the organisation, with emphasis on improving the completeness and accuracy of the information we use to ensure one version of the truth.
 

The Data Quality Assurance Manager role offers a challenging opportunity for a candidate with strong Data Quality skills and experience gained on implementing a data governance forum, driving data quality improvement programmes, data mapping / data cleansing / data migration, data profiling and master data management projects. Data skills will be complemented by an ability to communicate persuasively and effectively at all levels both within and outside the organisation

Reporting to the Head of BI & Data Analytics, the Data Assurance Manager will review the business processes and work flows needed for strengthening data management and play a major role in identifying, cleaning and assuring the data.
 

 

You will also pro-actively identify ways to reduce data quality issues at source by proposing improvements to systems and processes to reduce the risk of erroneous data capture and processing errors, re-educate users etc as appropriate.
 

 

This is a varied and challenging role that demands stakeholder management, planning, driving issues to resolution and people skills. You will work as a specialist, liaise with data processors, data owners, data stewards, users and technology teams and collaborate with multi-disciplinary project teams and informal focus groups to improve and quantify the reliability of the data needed to keep L&Q at the forefront. You must have experience using data tools for data quality and data migration management as well as have been involved in data migration and data improvement programmes.
 

 

Your suitability will be evidenced by a track record of contribution to successful implementation of data governance, data quality improvement programmes, master data management and/or a major data migration project.

The successful candidate is likely to have formal professional and academic qualifications or affiliations related to data quality and data management.
 

L&Q have two main offices and this role will have the option to be based at StratfordE15 4PH or Sidcup, DA14 5HU. There will be a requirement to travel between the offices on ad hoc occasions, however travel expenses between offices can be reclaimed.
 

 

If you are driven to make a difference, have the insight to understand complex systems and processes and the imagination to find solutions then we look forward to receiving your application!

L&Q is a regulated charitable housing association and one of the UK’s most successful independent social businesses. The L&Q Group houses around 250,000 people in more than 97,000 homes, primarily across London and the South East.

As a charitable organisation, our role goes beyond providing homes and housing services. We are a long-term partner in the neighbourhoods where we work. We hope to build aspiration, opportunity and confidence in our communities through our £250 million L&Q Foundation and our skills academy. 

In response to the housing and affordability crisis, we will build 100,000 new homes over ten years. Of these, 60,000 homes will be built or funded by L&Q, whilst a further 40,000 will come through partnerships. Crucially, at least 50% of these new homes will be genuinely affordable, with a target of 60% in London.

Our vision is that everyone has a quality home they can afford, and we combine our social purpose with commercial drive to create homes and neighbourhoods everyone can be proud of.
