Wiltshire is a thriving county that enables and positively encourages healthy living in strong, inclusive and prosperous communities. We are proud of our heritage and for having a strong community spirit. Over the last decade, with its public, private and voluntary sector partners, the Council has improved people’s lives and helped businesses to develop and relocate into Wiltshire. Looking ahead to the next decade, we plan to continue that success where people in communities come together to support each other, take part in events and activities, and take responsibility for what matters to them. We are now seeking a new Head of Business Intelligence, which is a pivotal role in continuing our journey.

This new role is integral to our future direction, as you will be the Council’s expert leading on all business intelligence matters, which will include providing leadership and direction to the Business Intelligence Team. You will work with the leadership team to develop and define the strategy, as well as developing and implementing the systems and processes to provide real insight aligned to business outcomes and the needs of our residents and customers. You will develop our “roadmap” for how the Council holds and manages data in the future and ensure that we use our data and information to aid decision making, identify trends and support forward planning.

We are excited to hear from individuals who are experienced and exemplary leaders in the intelligence and insight field who can drive and champion best practice in this strategic and influential role. You will lead and nurture the growth of the Council’s data and insight capability and capacity, and its application to the Council’s decision making and business processes.

If you have the innovative leadership, drive, expertise and vision required to transform and improve our organisation, we would like to hear from you. This is a superb opportunity to be at the heart of one of the most exciting and forward thinking Councils in the country and to manage a significant service which has wide impact across the whole Council.
