Would you like to join an ambitious and forward looking unit of analysts, researchers, data scientists and developers?

 

The Greater London Authority (GLA) relies on the City Intelligence Unit to provide high quality data and analysis to inform policy and investment in one of the world’s truly global cities.

 

As part of a growing multi-disciplinary team, we are looking for someone to carry out spatial data analysis using data science approaches for teams across the GLA. You will also produce innovative, customised and interactive web mapping applications (working closely with our JavaScript and data visualisation developers). You will have the opportunity to work on high profile projects such as the Schools Atlas, the well-regarded London DataStore and crowd sourcing apps such as Music.

 

A key part of the role is to continue and enhance the GIS team’s work with the wider group of 60+ staff who create and use mapping. We are looking for someone who enjoys communicating effectively with staff from other professions at various levels within the organisation and who can add something to the projects that they are involved in.

 

This is a great opportunity to develop your skills and experience, but you will need to bring with you a strong technical background including detailed knowledge of Geographic Information Systems in practical use and evidence of commitment to keep abreast of new development. You will also need to be able to think creatively about how your team’s products and services will fit into emerging agendas like big data and smart cities.

 

If you enjoy working with clients and providing innovative, practical solutions using GIS - apply today.
