Southend itself is a vibrant place to live and work, offering coastal living alongside excellent and fast transport links into London. Working for Southend-on-Sea City Council offers a challenging and rewarding career in local government within a collaborative and innovative environment. As a Unitary Authority we are responsible for all local government functions ranging from regulatory services, transport, public health and parks through to planning, social services, community safety and education, so we offer a wide range of career opportunities. The diversity of our economy and communities and investment in a number of exciting regeneration projects makes our Council a great place to work, learn and make a difference. Your new role We are looking for an experienced Senior Data Analyst to join the Operational Performance & Intelligence Team on a full time and permanent basis. This role will be based within a diverse and innovative team, and it is offered on a flexible and hybrid working basis (combination of working from home and the office).
