As Business Information and Reporting Manageryour main key responsibilities would be to:

    • Close Call Data
    • Health, Safety and Environment KPI Data
    • CDM Periodic Assessments
    • Project Team Assurance Forms (Currently using the I-Auditor system)
  • In order to do this the resource will have to work closely with a number of stakeholders across Capital Delivery Eastern in order to build up measures and requirements for the dashboards. A large amount of time will be spent with the S&SD Assurance team to build the dashboards to ensure that it meets the requirements of this team from an ongoing reporting perspective.
  • Facilitate or support structured workshops and one-to-one sessions to problem solve and identify opportunities which drive out waste, issue/risks and add value for Network Rail’s people, customers and passengers.

This is to ensure that what is designed for S&SD is in line with other areas of the business, that work already done by these initiatives / work streams is used to reduce required effort to create new dashboards and data management processes and where possible create efficiencies that benefit the business as a whole.
  • Develop a Power BI Dashboard for the Supply Framework Initiative based on a balanced scorecard that utilises data from the aforementioned systems.
  • Undertake troubleshooting and fixes for any issues following completion of the dashboards and produce a troubleshooting guide manual to be passed on to the S&SD team.
  • Produce a definitions document for all measures and calculated columns
  • Provide coaching, guidance and mentoring to the two members of the S&SD Assurance Team to allow them to take ownership of the dashboards on completion but also to allow them to be part of the dashboard building process, potentially taking on sections of development where the resource will act as a checker to ensure it meets requirements.
