Senior Insight Executive (SIO)
2 Marsham Street, London
The Home Office deals with some of the most important issues facing the UK and the Insight Tea is critical in helping to achieve its goals. The unit is responsible for bringing an approach based on evidence to communication planning and delivery across the department. It also provides a central
hub for audience insight and strategic communication advice.
The team has a wide remit as it works across the full portfolio of the Home Office. Issues include violence against women and girls; drugs and alcohol; crime and disorder; and policing and immigration. This means that the workload is very varied and often entails working on pioneering projects to address the research and insight challenges such issues bring.
The role of the Insight team is to use evidence, research and analysis to underpin our strategic communication strategies (often behaviour change focused), to help achieve some of the Home Office’s biggest communication challenges. It covers all types of communications research including quantitative and qualitative research, web analytics, desk research, econometrics and obviously the full range of Government statistics. We use these to build our audience understanding, develop and test hypotheses, and measure impact and results.
As a senior information officer (SIO) you will be responsible to the Head of Insight and will manage one (or more) information officers within that team to contribute to the delivery of communications insight and evaluation support across the Communication Directorate, as well as an ad hoc service to teams beyond communications. You will contribute to the management of the unit as required by, and in support of, the Head of Unit, alongside the other senior team leaders.
You will also support the Head of Insight and you may be expected to stand in for your line manager at management or other meetings. You will also contribute to the development and expertise within the Insight team.
The Home Office offers excellent career development prospects, competitive pension and benefits arrangements, and extensive professional support networks. Exactly as you would expect from a large, progressive employer like the Civil Service.
The Home Office is dedicated to promoting equality, fairness and respect. We will create a working environment where diversity is recognised, valued and celebrated.
