Job description

The purpose of the role is to lead the strategic development of data and insight to inform decision making on commissioning treatment and support services for people experiencing gambling harm. The Data and Insight Lead will hold responsibility for creating a data strategy which encompasses organising, governing, analysing and deploying GambleAware’s data assets. The role will provide the organisation with future focused analysis of data across both internal and external datasets, translating and understanding what will be useful to the organisation at a strategic level. The role will include the establishment of a Data Quality Framework, and progress the publication of GambleAware data hosted by the Consumer Data Research Centre. The role will encompass working closely with senior leaders as well as with internal teams.

You will be joining a new team, Evaluation and Monitoring, and we are currently developing the strategic plan for this department including the impact frameworks. The first step is to build capacity within evaluation, where the aim is to: 

  • Commission evaluations to underpin GambleAware’s education and treatment commissioning across the spectrum of public health (primary, secondary, tertiary prevention levels) 
  • Build the evidence base of what works for whom in education and in treatment to ensure evidence-informed services are developed according to need within a robust and accountable system, and that funding is allocated efficiently and independently.
  • Build evaluation capacity across the wider sector.

As a leader, the role will contribute to achieving the organisation’s overall strategic priorities:

  • Accelerate engagement and awareness to deliver targeted activity to raise awareness, reduce stigma and encourage engagement with information and advice, support and treatment services.
  • Transform capacity and capability by collaborating with the NHS, public health agencies, local authorities, and voluntary sector organisations across England, Scotland, and Wales to support the growth of an integrated system of prevention provision.
  • Increase equity and champion diversity to understand and address inequalities in experiences, access to services and outcomes for those experiencing gambling harm. We will take a collaborative approach working with a diversity of communities to ensure that support, services, treatment and pathways to services are accessible and effective
  • Deliver best-in-class commissioning with the focus on improving processes and systems to enhance good governance, maximising transparency and value for money. We will include the voice of those with lived experience in the co-production of awareness raising, support, and treatment services.
