The post holder will be responsible for developing a high-quality modelling and MI function spanning the whole of HM Land Registry’s activities, building a strong analytical community and providing thought leadership around modelling quality-assurance and the use of a wide range of modelling approaches to support analytical decision-making.

Your main duties will include:

• Working with the Chief Analyst, you will develop a modelling and MI function, building on existing work in the MI space and developing data flows to improve modelling in support of strategic decisions.
• Engaging with the Boards and providing thought leadership for HMLR’s use of operational research, modelling and MI in decision-making.
• Building relationships with key stakeholders, including HMT, the geospatial commission, and BEIS, as well as estate agents and conveyancers.
• Delivering, maintaining and developing business-critical models in support of HMLR’s strategic and operational decision-making, establishing teams in support of the key areas of the business (in particular Transformation).

• Managing a team of eleven staff (we expect some growth with demand).
