Grade 9: £47,263 - £54,765 p.a.


The Department of Statistics in Oxford is seeking a client-facing senior statistical consultant to lead its Statistical Consultancy Service. You will be qualified and practised in the use of statistical methods and bring your substantial consultancy experience to direct and manage the end-to-end provision of the Department's consultancy activities. You will promote the Department's consultancy services across the UK and internationally, liaising with clients and proactively identifying new opportunities and potential projects. You will identify and facilitate industrially-focused projects for graduate and undergraduate students, as well as provide statistical advice, analysis and interpretation of results to external organisations.


The Director of Statistical Consultancy will hold a doctorate (or have equivalent research experience) in statistics, machine learning or a related field with post-qualification consultancy experience, preferably industrial. You will lead and develop the programmes and methodologies of the consultancy team and have proven ability to communicate engagingly both in writing and orally. Strong programming skills are essential in this role. Ideally, you will have experience of collaborations at national and international level and a Chartered Statistician (CStat) qualification, but this is not essential.
