This is an exciting opportunity to join the Modelling Team in Building Digital UK (BDUK). The BDUK analytical community is made up of a dozen analysts, who support the directorate through modelling and analysis to enable the effective investment of over £5 billion public investments into digital infrastructure across the UK.
The team provides the data and analysis that support policy design and decision support for the delivery of future fibre infrastructure programmes, such as the Rural Gigabit Connectivity programme, and the long term Outside-In fibre programme. We are analysing a wealth of data to identify the most effective ways of delivering high speed broadband, as well as evaluating past and present interventions to learn from them.
BDUK analytical work is multi-disciplinary in nature, working with operational researchers, social researchers, statisticians and economists; we select the right analytical approach, to ensure the right evidence is available at the right time. You will develop tools to help decision-makers understand the evidence including using geospatial analysis to produce interactive maps.
Your work will help us understand and shape new and innovative delivery models, and shape the development and delivery of policy on the future of the telecoms industry.
You will deliver & develop BDUK’s analytical capability, which includes:
- Data science and visualisation (including geo-spatial)
- Evaluating the impact of past & present interventions.
