About the Role

We are seeking a full-time Senior Data Analyst to join our team. We are looking for someone eager to conduct data analysis, share their expertise, and build upon a tradition of evaluation and data excellence at NewGlobe.

 

The Senior Data Analyst is responsible for conducting various descriptive analyses and writing briefs within the organisation. Specifically, this role will focus on programme expansion and new launches. These analyses range from predicting pupil enrolment using census surveys to proposing a teacher utilisation model by analysing teacher and classroom data. The daily work involves both simple descriptive analyses using a few Excel formulas and more complex work using multiple Stata or R scripts. To do this, the Senior Data Analyst will need to manage all parts of the data analysis process – from the design stage through the execution of analyses and the reporting of the findings to other internal stakeholders.

 

The analyst is responsible for providing high-quality data products on which other colleagues can rely and build their work. As such, this role is at the core of all the Data Analytics efforts within NewGlobe. We view data and analytics as core to our ability to learn as an organisation. We want to cultivate data and analytics rock stars who produce and use data to reveal actionable insights for NewGlobe’s rapidly growing network of schools.

The Senior Data Analyst should be willing to work in Lagos,Nigeria. The role will report to the Director of Data Analytics.

What You Will Do

  • Clean and analyse datasets. These datasets can be used to answer questions from a wide range of topics such as staff utilisation, pupil enrolment, and induction training attendance.
  • Ensure the creation of proper data pipelines and best data management practices.
  • Write briefs on findings and propose the best practices to leaders within the organisation.
  • Contribute to a culture of data-driven decision-making by collaborating with various team members across programmes.
  • Accommodate requests for quick analyses. Time-sensitive questions will come from the VPs and C-Level Executives and usually take anywhere from a few hours to a few days. Often, you will need to direct your staff to use their best judgment in the face of imperfect data.
  • Other duties may be required by the Directors, VP of Schools, and C-level executives.
  • Lead the Data Analytics team in the Lagos office by guiding Data Analysts in data clearing and data management processes.

What You Should Have

  • High data literacy and a strong background in data cleaning, data management, and data analysis. Previous experiences in education management, such as being an analyst, research assistant, and data manager in public schools, is a plus.
  • A high level of proficiency with Stata, SAS,  or R, and Excel. Any other data analysis software or coding language is a plus. Experience with survey software like Google Forms is also a plus.
  • Undergraduate degree (or its equivalent) or Master’s degree – in a relevant academic discipline, for example (but not limited to) Education Policy, Public Policy, Economics, or Statistics.
  • Strong communication skills and the ability to translate complex ideas for non-technical audiences – you will need effective verbal and written communication skills to provide valuable insights and reports for internal and external stakeholders.
  • Belief in data-driven decision-making.
  • Flexible and loves to work in a dynamic environment.
  • Passion – for NewGlobe’s mission.
  • Bonus – experience in extreme growth situations and dealing with complexity.
  • 4 + years of Experience

 

You’re also

  • A detailed doer – You have a track record of getting things done. You’re organized and responsive. You take ownership of every idea you touch and execute it to a fine level of detail, setting targets, engaging others, and doing whatever it takes to get the job done. You can multi-task dozens of such projects at once and never lose sight of the details. Likely, you have some experience in a start-up or other rapid-growth company.
  • A networking mastermind – You excel at meeting new people and turning them into advocates.  You communicate in a clear, conscientious, and effective way in both written and oral speech. You can influence strangers in the course of a single conversation. Allies and colleagues will go to bat for your ideas. You have an existing network from prior experience in the country, preferably in the regulatory, education, or business sectors.
  • A creative problem-solver – Growing any business from scratch comes with massive and constant challenges. On top of that, NewGlobe works in often fragile, sometimes volatile, low-resource communities and with complex government systems. You need to be flexible and ready to get everything done effectively, quickly, and affordably with the materials at hand.
  • A relentless advocate –The children we serve and teachers we empower never leave your mind. You know them, get them, have shared a meal with them (or would be happy to in the future). You would never shrink back from shaking a parent’s hand or picking up a crying child, no matter what the person was wearing or looked like.  Every decision you make considers their benefit, experience,
    and value.
  • A malleable learner –You believe you can always do better. You welcome constructive criticism and provide it freely to others.  You know you only get better tomorrow when others point out where you’ve missed things or failed today.
  • A curious investigator – You ask why a lot. You don’t just take what you see and accept it. You wonder why it is that way, and are aware that the world we see is created by human choices and actions – and it could be different. You wonder, and see the world as wonderful even when you want to change a part of it that is unjust.
