The salary for this post is set within Band B range of £36,254 - £46,888 for inner London


New recruits to the Civil Service joining MoJ are expected to join at the band minimum. For an exceptional applicant and under exceptional circumstances, managers have discretion to set starting salaries above the pay range minimum.


Existing civil servants applying on promotion will usually be appointed on the salary minimum of the new pay band or with an increase of 10 percent on their existing base salary (restricted to the new pay band maximum), whichever is the higher.


For existing civil servants, whilst the role itself is time limited, at the end of the fixed term period you will retain your permanent status but will be placed on the re-deployment register. Successful appointment on promotion will secure this grade on a permanent substantive basis.


Overview


It is an extremely exciting time here at HM Courts and Tribunals Service. We are undertaking a first-of-its-kind Change Programme aimed at delivering pioneering justice services that better serve the public, and with over £1 billion of funding, this is the most ambitious programme of its kind anywhere in the world.


As part of the Enterprise Performance Framework team you will be at the forefront of designing and implementing how we measure the delivery of our services in our world-leading justice system.


Can you deliver in a fast-paced environment that is changing constantly? Does developing new ways of measuring services focussed on the end-user excite you? If so, please apply today!


Background


HM Courts and Tribunals Service underpins the delivery of justice, making sure trials and hearings run fairly and efficiently. Every year, millions of people seek justice in our courts and tribunals and we are here to ensure anyone in need of our courts and tribunals receives a service that suits their needs.


We are focused on radically improving the journey for all, to ensure that they feel like the system is designed to support them through the justice process. Our performance framework has been designed around the people who use it. In broad terms generating simplicity and confidence in our justice system is our primary goal and this team is focused on ensuring we measure the right things, in the right ways so that we know if we are achieving our objectives.


Enterprise Performance Framework Design


The Enterprise Performance Framework Design team is a cross cutting and enabling team which is designing the measures and data that our organisation needs to run itself in the future. The team is responsible for designing measures that are discussed at the HMCTS Board all the way through to local court buildings to ensure we are focusing on delivering Just, Proportionate and Accessible services. To do this we are harnessing the opportunity of our reform programme to build new ways of collecting data and are using this data to design new measures of our performance across all the services that we provide. At the end of the project we will have developed a new way of measuring performance across the organisation. To achieve this, we have developed a multi-functional team across this enterprise-level performance project and Customer Directorate which provides expertise in a range of areas including: data analysis, social research, behaviour change, data visualisation and data science.


Key responsibilities


You will work on a variety of projects that require analytical thinking and hands-on approaches to generate insights on to inform our measure design. During your role you will deliver:


  • New core measures that will be used from 2020/21 to measure the performance of the organisation (for example, timeliness, effort, repeat contact). The measures will be used for decision making at the HMCTS Board and Service Performance Boards all the way through to delivery teams within operations
  • Service specific measures that enable us to understand how we are performing in a particular area (e.g. interaction with government departments)
  • Collaborative work with our delivery team to design how we visualise the measures (currently in Power BI) so that the data is communicated effectively to provide insight and enable decision making.                                                                                                                           

While in post you will take ownership for the design of specific measures. You’ll be working with stakeholders, the senior management team and the judiciary to make sure we measure what matters, focusing our resources effectively on the things that we can take action against to improve the service we deliver. The role presents a rare opportunity to analyse data sets, define new data requirements and propose new approaches to measuring and understanding the performance of a large operational organisation.


The parties involved in cases, or potential cases, range from the individual money claimant seeking to recover funds from a company, to vulnerable social security appellants, or the victims of crime. You will design measures that capture these nuances, understanding what behaviour will be driven by the proposals that we make. You will build relationships and collaborate with other analytical teams across the department, the digital performance community, other government departments and external organisations to fill data and knowledge gaps and build on best practice.


To discuss the role in further detail, please contact Marianne Abery, Marianne.Abery@justice.gov.uk
