Data Analyst

Job description

At ORH, our Analysts are passionate about data and its role in influencing decision-making at emergency services around the world. By identifying patterns and making the right connections in a variety of large-scale data sets, their work helps public services operate more effectively and efficiently.

Joining our analytical team will enable you to apply your technical and problem-solving skills to real-world issues, and you’ll learn how our unique software helps emergency services better meet the needs of the public.

You will support high profile public projects by analysing and understanding large data sets to identify patterns and provide accurate and meaningful analysis. There are also opportunities to use ORH’s in-house simulation and optimisation modelling software. Day-to-day work will involve many complex studies, requiring you to carefully manage your own time, but there is also a strong emphasis on working together.

What we offer
While our work is important, the atmosphere is open and relaxed, with everyone pulling together and working towards the same goals. We are a collaborative, intelligent and friendly team working in a high quality environment. You’ll have an interesting and varied workload where you’ll make a tangible difference to the world, with the opportunity to work on unique projects with technical challenges that will stretch and challenge your skills.

The role is project-oriented and based at our offices in Reading, although opportunities will arise to work on international projects and travel abroad. We provide training, support and career development opportunities, and encourage employees to follow their own interests.

What we are looking for

We are looking for graduates with enthusiasm, curiosity, personal drive, technical know-how and the ability to communicate clearly and convincingly. You should have a numerate background and the desire to make a difference within a critical and ever-changing sector. Current employees are qualified in maths, geography, Operational Research (OR), physics and management science.

Proficiency in the use of Excel is essential; experience in large database manipulation would be an advantage (Access or SQL), as would an understanding of GIS. The ability to assess your own work and identify improvements is also important for this role.
