We’re looking for a Data Risk Analyst to join us on a fixed-term contract of up to 12-months to help provide clear, engaging, and accessible risk data that our senior leaders can use to support their decision-making. It’s so important that our colleagues have the tools and knowledge they need to access this data, and considerations around UX/UI are key to this.

As a Data Risk Analyst at Co-op, we’ll look to you to put processes and procedures in place to make sure we’re using data in a safe and compliant way. You’ll also collaborate with colleagues across the wider business to highlight the importance of managing data risk.

  • Work with colleagues across the wider business to promote standard processes and compliance around data risk and control
  • Collaborate with our Data Protection and Information Security teams to explore the broader data risk approach at Co-op
  • Develop interfaces that provide risk reports at our fingertips and carry-out assurance reviews; making sure that data risks are reviewed, up to date, and minimised

This role would suit people who have

  • Experience in a development or analytical role
  • Experience using Python or R
  • Experience with front end web design
  • A solid understanding of UX/UI with the ability to use Microsoft Power Apps to build interfaces
  • Strong analytical and problem-solving skills
  • Good communication skills, with the ability to translate technical language for non-technical audiences
