Do you want to work for West Midlands Police? Are you looking for your next assignment?

As one of our talented Analysts, you'll support the Lead by ensuring the force benefits from accurate and insightful people reporting and analysis. By undertaking research and benchmarking, you'll aid effective workforce planning decisions. We're looking for people with extensive experience of working with large, complex data sets, reporting tools, statistical modelling and analytical techniques. Proactive and adaptable, you'll easily work to deadlines. And you'll bring an unrivalled eye for detail and passion for data, as well as inspiring confidence in those around you. And, ideally, you'll have membership of the CIPD, along with relevant qualifications.

Overview / Job Role

As part of the Reward project we will require a job analyst to undertake around 40 to 45 job evaluations identified in the benchmark exercise

The analyst will be provided with a set of papers for each role, and they will need to interpret and understand the data, refer back to other Hay evaluations in the organisation for consistency checking and speak to the manager (normally by phone) to complete the evaluation / HR colleagues for clarification and further information where they feel this is required to produce a quality product. It is not expected that the analyst will be required to interview job holder, as this will be a "desktop" exercise, and will need to be completed to a tight timescale.

The evaluations will be undertaken using the WMP Hay guide book, and the analyst will be required to produce a full rationale and score line for each job role as part of the recording requirements, and to discuss their work as part of the peer review of evaluations.

Experience, Skills and qualities

The person will be

  • Trained by Hay Group in the use of the Hay Group Guide Chart profile method of evaluation and able to evidence regular use of the Hay methodology in assessing a wide range of job roles, including non -management jobs in complex and multi strand organisations.
  • Able to evidence an analytical and objective approach to job evaluation, free from unconscious bias and other influencing factors
  • Good verbal and written communication to write and discuss reports
  • Good administrative skills and the ability to organise and manage own workload
  • Able to use Excel and other Microsoft Office products.


The work is expected to take 12 to 15 days (depending upon the final number of evaluations in the benchmark sample). Whilst the work is flexible and does not have to be done at set times/ set days per week , the analyst will need to be able to complete the work within the allocated timescale, and flag to the project lead any barriers / constraints which are likely to adversely impact upon the proposed completion date. For this reason it is expected the work will be done in one concentrated block, with some flexibility at the end to "mop up" any outstanding issues.
