Are you searching for an exciting and challenging new opportunity on a project basis combining Statistical Analysis, Technical Coding and Team Leadership? We are currently searching for a Field Operations Simulations Lead to work on an exciting, large and complex technical project within the public sector. If this might be the exciting new opportunity for you, then please contact me for further details.
As a member of our customer's Statistical Design Team, within this role you would be responsible for the leading the work of the Field Operations Simulation, a discrete event simulation modelling an information collection operation and used to inform resourcing requirements and predict patterns of response. This is a unique opportunity to model a large-scale logistical operation, driving much of the operational, statistical and financial decision-making of a major upcoming project. The post-holder will work on validating and updating some of the assumptions underpinning the current model, as well as implementing data from previous event simulations in order to produce the useful data and information.
As the lead for the Field Operations Simulation, you will also produce the estimated patterns of response used to assess live return data and inform decisions. You will work closely with key stakeholders from Census Field Operations and Data Collection Services teams and Methodologists. The role will include Line Management responsibilities for one or two Research Officers.
We anticipate that the successful applicant for this exciting new opportunity will have the following skills, knowledge and experience:
*strong analytical experience, including a track record of breaking down complex analytical problems.
*excellent coding skills (preferably in Python), with experience of developing complex code and working with multiple large datasets.
*exceptional communication skills in working with senior officials and external stakeholders, with the ability to explain the results, context and impact in the delivery of analytical work.
*experience of managing work, with appropriate planning and risk awareness, to deliver high quality outcomes that give value for money.
*ability to manage a team and prioritise tasks in line with organisational objectives.
*it would be desirable (though not essential) to find someone with prior experience of working with discrete event simulations.
Should you feel that you possess the skills, knowledge and experience to succeed within this exceptional opportunity for a project-based Simulations Team Lead within a highly complex technical project, then please contact me for further information and details.
