The Social Value Portal is a young London & Manchester-based Software as a Service (SaaS) business that works with public and private sector clients across the UK, employing over 60 people. Our mission is to provide an evidence-based approach to measuring and delivering social value, based on a quantitative methodology for measuring social value that we developed, called the TOMs (Themes, Outcomes and Measures). Our customers provide us, through an online Portal, with quantitative and qualitative data on their social value activities. Increasingly, they and other stakeholders want to know how well they are doing and to analyse the data in a variety of ways – by location, by sector, by activity, for example. We now have a significant volume of data on the Portal over a period of time and we are working hard to convert this into insight for our customers and partners.
To help us with this, we are looking one or more individuals to work with us to process and analyse this data. This is a full-time role. You will be reporting directly to the Head of Data and Analytics, who is a main board director in the business, as well as working with members of our Research, Development and Innovation and our Customer Success teams.
We are flexible in terms of the mix of home and office working and keeping this under review as the working environment changes as COVID restrictions are lifted, but it is likely that this role will be some form of hybrid, with a home-based element and the need to be able to visit the office periodically. so our preference would be for the individual(s) to be located in the UK with the ability to make periodic visits to one of the two offices. But we can be flexible around this requirement.
Required experience, skills and qualifications:
- A high level of mathematical ability and a good academic standard in a numerical or mathematical discipline
- The ability to analyse, model and interpret data
- Problem-solving skills
- A methodical and logical approach
- The ability to plan work and meet deadlines
- Accuracy and attention to detail
- Good interpersonal skills
- Good teamworking skills
- Good written and verbal communication skills
- Graduate – Bachelor’s degree as a minimum
- Relevant Masters’ degree
- Experience using programming languages such as Python and R for data analysis
- Familiarity with Salesforce
- Experience with data visualisation tools such as Tableau and Power BI
Between £19,000 – £25,000 annual equivalent (prorated to 10 months)

Social value is about delivering economic, social and environmental sustainability to help create flourishing communities and places. The Social Value Portal has a suite of user-friendly, online collaboration tools that enable its clients in the public, private and community and voluntary sectors to work together to deliver social value.
