Intelligence Analyst

£33,639 - £37,167

35 hours per week

Temporary until 31 March 2022 (subject to funding)




About the role

We are excited to announce an excellent opportunity for an Intelligence Analyst to join the Performance and Improvement Department at the Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC).

If you have a keen analytical mind, an ability to learn quickly and gather, analyse and relay the information in an innovative and engaging way, then this is the role for you. 

Your job will be to play a key role in the delivery of the time sensitive research to support the performance and intelligence requirements of the SSSC. Your work will drive changes to the business through the design and production of a variety of robust analytical reports and products that meet management and other stakeholder requirements.


Who we are

We are the independent regulator for social service workers in Scotland. Our work means the people of Scotland can count on social work, social care and early years services being provided by a trusted, skilled and confident workforce.

We protect the public by registering social work, social care and early years workers, setting standards for their practice, conduct, training and education and by supporting their professional development. Where people fall below the standards of practice and conduct, we can investigate and take action.


What you need to succeed

We are looking for someone with:

  • experience of capturing, understanding and interrogating data with the ability of distributing this information in inventive ways
  • a proven ability to identify opportunities for innovation and improvements from business intelligence
  • experience of using data visualisation software such as Power BI and programming languages, specifically Structured Query Language (SQL), to support and deliver complex reports across an organisation.

Why work for us

We are an ambitious, enthusiastic and supportive organisation. With around 300 employees, you can really make an impact here. We offer a generous salary, flexible working arrangements, a full range of benefits, local government pension scheme and up to 43 days holiday (dependent on service). Please note new entrants will normally start on the minimum of the pay range.

You can find out more about the benefits of working here on our website.

Our office is in Dundee but, during COVID-19, this role is home based until we don’t need to physically distance. We encourage remote working and support a less office-based format even after restrictions are lifted. We are developing our agile working policy and are happy to discuss individual arrangements and consider agile working as an option, depending on job requirements (such as being in the office for training events and meetings etc) and meeting the eligibility criteria determined by the new policy. We welcome applications from candidates outside Dundee and the surrounding areas.

How to apply

You’ll find more information in the job profile and person specification.

Find more information about us here on our website and at and on Twitter @SSSCnews.

To apply, please submit the completed online application form by 8.00am on Monday 20 September 2021. We expect to hold interviews during the week commencing 4 October 2021.
