About Data at Cera

Data has a critical role to play in many areas. First, data about our care operations, covering everything from hiring carers to the delivery of care. Data helps us to observe and understand how we are performing, what is working and what we could do to better deliver care. Second, data about service users health, covering everything from their conditions to the health outcomes resulting from those conditins, helps us to observe and understand their experience but more importantly, it helps us to predict and prevent health deteriorations for those in our care. Thirdly, data helps us understand our financial health, ensuring we deliver commissioned services sustainably to local communities.

About our Analytics Team

Our analytics data team's purpose is to empower our head office team with organisational insight and our frontline staff with actionable reports. Our goal is to enable the cera team to answer any question and have deep insight on any aspect of Cera Care. 

To deliver on this promise at scale we combine expertise is BI / Analytics Tooling with people who ask great questions and subject matter experts who will go the extra mile to understand the complexities of data and transform this into digestible insights.

About the People Data Analyst role

Supported by technology, we are a service business delivered person to person and every interaction matters. Our people are the people we care for, our carers who deliver amazing care, the families of those receiving care, our branch managers and our head office teams supporting care delivery,  and recruiting tomorrow’s carers, those who express interest in joining us on our mission. We are a people organisation first and foremost but every interaction generates data that has us deliver care effectively. 

This newly created role will start in our analytics data team but work closely with our people and recruitment teams supporting them with all their insight needs.  The role will conduct data analysis to help us report on and understand all our workforce, candidates, recruitment, on boarding, training, engagement, retention, employee turnover, exit interview analysis, employee satisfaction, annual leave, compensation and benefit analysis and other HR processes. The role will help model data and create reports and self service experiences in our BI tool (looker). Additionally, the People Team are wishing to build a HR Balanced Scorecard, with clear KPI’s for both functional accountability and performance across the business, providing the ability to use the insights to identify trends and predictive analytics.

Data analysis in other tools (including python) may be required for some more bespoke data analysis projects. There is an abundance of data projects to dive into and plenty of new skills to learn from each other so it’s a great time to join this newly formed team.

What you’ll do 

  • You will act as a business partner to the People Team and support the Director of People in providing insights that will support decision making
  • You will ask great questions (to understand people, process and technology).
  • You will tell stories with data, building reports and dashboards that deliver insight to help improve the delivery of care.
  • You will help create new metrics and attributes in our data models to help build out our analytics platform (looker).
  • You will look beyond the data to understand the story and human interactions behind the data.
  • You will help product managers build the value case for development of new products, services and features and evaluate the performance of our existing offering.

  • You will validate assumptions with data analysis and take action if data does not support the story.
  • You will work with report consumers to understand their needs and deliver reports that empower them with actionable insights.
  • You’ll work with software engineers and system owners to understand and document where and how data is created, influencing upstream to ensure quality and integrity at source where possible.
  • You will be supported by Data & Analytics Specialists and Product Managers and Development Team Leads.
