Scottish Enterprise (SE) is Scotland’s national economic development agency. We help Scottish businesses to grow nationally and internationally, to become more efficient and innovative, and to access the services they need to grow and help the Scottish economy.

As part of our ambitious data, digital and technology transformation programme, we’re developing our expertise in data analysis and sciences. Our new teams of data engineers and data scientists will help us improve our ability to make fact-based decisions at all levels.

The difference you'll make

In this key role you’ll be instrumental in identifying the data we need to inform our decisions. You’ll work with colleagues across SE to understand the information they need. You’ll then lead the process of data acquisition and preparation for the next stage in the data analysis cycle.

You’ll manage a small team of data engineers, coaching them in best practices for:

  • Data sourcing
  • Profiling
  • Cleansing
  • Enrichment
  • Extraction
  • Loading
  • Validation
  • Manipulating
  • Investigating
  • Mapping

You’ll also work with colleagues in partner organisations, and with private sector companies, to help create more ‘joined-up’ services and insights that will benefit Scotland’s economy.

As a key member of the Data and Analytics leadership team, you’ll deputise for your line manager and colleagues where appropriate.

The qualities you'll bring

You’ll be working in a hands-on technology role already, and have a firm grasp of the latest thinking in data engineering. In particular, you’ll be an expert across Microsoft’s Azure stack and in implementing ETL/ELT practices over Microsoft’s Data and Analytics stack.

Your strong influencing and communication skills will help you develop excellent relationships with your internal customers, while your leadership skills will help you build an effective and motivated team.
