We’re the main migration organisation in Yorkshire and Humber and it’s an exciting time to join us, as we look to transform our press and social media profiles. You’ll take a key role in our press activity, lead on social media and ensure effective publicity for the new Connecting Opportunities project.

We’re looking for a flexible communications specialist who knows what makes a good story, writes engaging press and media copy and has expertise in using social media. You’ll have a talent for designing and creating infographics and/or videos, along with good editorial judgment, the ability to meet tight deadlines and excellent attention to detail.

You’ll be joining a friendly, growing team that is based in the centre of Leeds. This is a full-time, permanent post with an option for some home working. The role requires travel across Yorkshire and Humber and sometimes further afield.

Do you thrive on making data meaningful to different audiences? Are you passionate about using applied data to improve service provision for vulnerable people?

Migration Yorkshire is a friendly, growing team. We are committed to supporting local authorities and the voluntary sector across Yorkshire and Humber to deliver evidence-based services to local communities that include different migrant groups. We’re looking for an experienced data analyst who is keen to develop our migration statistics agenda to promote access, understanding and application of data among a wide audience.

In this new post, you will lead on our existing portfolio of migration data work that includes regular reports on migration to local areas, responding to queries about migration trends and generating ways of improving our understanding of migrant communities through data. You’ll also have a key role in developing the performance monitoring system for a new integration project, Connecting Opportunities: you’ll work closely with the 9 partner organisations to collect monitoring and evaluation data for reporting purposes and to improve service delivery.

The ideal candidate will have a solid background in data handling and analysis, with an instinctive ability to absorb the subtleties of different datasets. You’ll be good at communicating with people who aren’t statisticians, and skilled in adjusting your explanations for different learning styles. You don’t need a comprehensive understanding of migration - but we are looking for someone who is enthusiastic about the integration of migrants and about ensuring that the Yorkshire and Humber region benefits from migration.

You’ll be joining a team that is based in the centre of Leeds. This is a full-time, permanent post with an option for some home working. The role requires travel across Yorkshire and Humber and sometimes further afield.
