Closing date: Friday 20 May 2022

The Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists (RCSLT) is the professional body for speech and language therapists across the UK. The RCSLT has more than 20,000 members and employs around 50 staff predominately based in a London office. It also has offices in Belfast, Edinburgh and Cardiff. Read about our mission and values.

We are looking for a Senior Data Analyst who can guide the RCSLT’s development, analysis and communication of data about the speech and language therapy profession. This new role will support the workforce lead and your experience and skills will have an immediate and lasting impact.

You will be a key partner for RCSLT teams working on a wide range of projects, from classic business analytics on the membership profile, to innovative workforce research to help us understand the impact that SLTs make in their work. You will help build the data capabilities of the whole organisation: using tools that bring the data to our members and using critical evaluation to bring depth of understanding about the profession for use within the organisation.

You will have proven technical skills – in statistics, analysis and data visualisation. Just as importantly, you will be a great communicator – able to clarify and contextualise data stories for all kinds of audiences. You will be in your element using real-world data to answer real-world questions. You will be able to see the impact of your work, both within the RCSLT, and for the people and the profession that we serve.

Staff are currently working remotely due to the pandemic. When the main office in London Bridge re-opens, candidates may be expected to be office-based for at least part of the week.
