This work programme is one of the biggest initiatives happening in the Local Authority right now and is linked to other council agendas such as becoming carbon neutral by 2030. It will help realise the potential of data in Cornwall, bringing it together in a centralised data warehouse to provide invaluable insight both into what the Council does and how it does it. In turn this will inform and support the future of Cornwall which is vital to the Covid-19 recovery and economic planning.

Cornwall is a unique county; we are 125 miles long with a population which is very diverse in terms of the geographic spread. With 800 different data sources within the council, there is a wealth of potential information.

You can play a pivotal role in the future of Cornwall and its people by working with data to deliver insight to the people who can use it to make a difference.

Delivering through agile sprints, you will ensure that all of the relevant information is presented in a stimulating and unambiguous way to varied audiences.
