1. Work with SSEN Transmission stakeholders, including Subject Matter Experts, to create and maintain metadata (data about data) using the SSE Group data governance tools. Support the development of a presumed open data marketplace. Ensure that via search capability, meaningful glossary definitions, standardisation and tagging data sources become discoverable and accessible to business users and also external stakeholders. Maintain the appropriate metadata and data dictionary repositories for all data to enable SSEN Transmission and our stakeholders to better understand existing and future datasets.
2. Design and deliver metadata insights using data governance and cataloguing tooling and reporting tools to provide an insight and support continuous improvement on utilisation of data governance and cataloguing tooling.
3. Support the adoption of, and reporting on, uniformly recognised and accepted data management standards and definitions throughout SSEN Transmission. Provide input into the development of the data management frameworks applicable across SSEN Transmission for the effective management of data assets.
4. Provide data management consultancy particularly with regard to business transformation projects in line with SSEN Transmission Value Stream products where data management best practice including data cataloguing is fundamental to success. Promote the wider adoption of data management best practice and utilisation of data governance tooling.
5. Communicate effectively across all business areas and externally, ensuring all required areas are engaged to support and deliver effective and continuously improving data and metadata management.
What do I need?
To be considered for this role, we would love you to have:
1. a passion for data and information, recognising the value which catalogued quality data and metadata can bring to our and our stakeholders decision making capabilities and an understanding of the role which presumed open data and digitalisation will play within SSEN Transmission and the wider energy industry to accelerate our transition to net zero.
2. a good understanding of data management best practice and data maturity improvements, including a thorough appreciation of the benefits of a data governance framework.
3. operational familiarity in the use of data governance, data quality and meta data management tools.
4. the courage to bring new ideas, new skills and innovative thinking to help us improve our data quality and support our stakeholder needs and our regulatory and legal data requirements.
5. excellent stakeholder management skills, with the ability to use empathy and understanding to direct cross-functional teams to successful delivery.
