The Parliamentary Digital Service (PDS) works with the House of Commons, the House of Lords, and Parliament staff on their IT and digital needs.
At the Parliamentary Digital Service, we’re transforming the way Parliament does digital. We’re responsible for the digital output of all parliamentary services. We think it’s important that everyone can access and understand what’s going on in Parliament. Our goal is to bring together the public, Parliament Members, and Parliamentary staff to inform, engage, support, and communicate through one, unified digital core – PDS.
The Data and Search team consists of data analysts and data engineers who focus on understanding data, providing insights on data, and transformation of data to effectively deliver services to stakeholders within Parliament. This involves supporting the master data sets, integrations between systems, supporting the implementation of new systems, improving the quality of data and providing analytics and reporting.
The post holder will be part of the data and search team with links to the Transforming Digital (TD) program. TD is a large and wide ranging program delivering new technology, changes to processes and governance, service transformation, people and capability development and organisational redesign (and much more).
As a Senior Data Analyst you will collect, organise and analyse data to provide business insight and support decision making. Core to the role is the assessment of data for its intended use, particularly in the context of consuming and supplying data (data integration, data migration) for the purpose of providing effective services and developing data models for reporting.
This role will help support the Transforming Digital project and the Master Data Management Project, a project the Data and Search Team are delivering. Project work will include supporting the migration of data for systems that are being replaced, providing input into new data models, analysing data quality, and supporting the data integration between systems.
