Data Services Analyst



35 hours per week


These are exciting times at The Children's Society. Now settled in to a vibrant, new office, and with a new CRM system on the way, there is a fantastic opportunity for a Data Services Analyst to join the Data Services Team. This key role will deliver comprehensive data services (data selections, importing, maintenance and training) to teams across the organisation, and provide support as we transition CRMs from Raiser's Edge to MS Dynamics 365.

The Data Services Analyst will develop segmented data selections for a diverse range outbound communications, import data from external data sources, and deliver support and training to users. This will involve working with our Raisers Edge database, SQL-based data warehouse and FastStats.

This is varied role, ideal for a developing data services professional, comprising a mix of scheduled and ad-hoc tasks, innovative data selection work and active collaboration with internal stakeholders. We are fully committed to staff learning and development with an annual training allowance and flexible working patterns (subject to completion of probation period) and 28 days annual leave plus bank holidays.

If you have a passion for all things data, wish to broaden and develop your skills, and are looking for the next step in your career we would love to hear from you.


In order to be successful in this role, you must have strong data manipulation skills, the ability to visualise and understand relational data and data flow processes, and a track record of providing excellent data services whilst engaging with internal clients.

Experience of working with relational databases (ideally Raiser's Edge or MS Dynamics 365), reporting/selection tools (such as FastStats) and of data validation and manipulation techniques is particularly important (preferably in a SQL environment).


The Children's Society runs over 100 local services that help thousands of young people who desperately need our support, and we campaign to get laws and policies changed to make children's lives happier and safer.

Every day we're changing the lives of this country's most vulnerable children for the better - and with your help, tomorrow we can be there for even more.

The closing date for applications is 23:59 05/01/2020

Interviews will be held in the week commencing 13/01/2020
