Reporting Analyst


We are looking for a Reporting Analyst to join our team and play a key role processing confidential reports from external sources regarding concerns related to transport and infrastructure organisations. Following strict procedures for assessing whether the report can be taken, you will interview reporters, acting as liaison between reporter and member organisation to achieve a response which addresses the concern raised. Adopting a person-centred approach, you will encourage dialogue and the provision of information whilst preserving the confidentiality of the reporter. Quantitative and qualitative analysis based on a range of report data collected by CIRAS is also key to this role, identifying associations, trends and patterns in the data for periodic reporting, learning and research projects.

Data Analysis

  • Respond to data requests from internal and external parties by running queries on the reporting database and interpreting the results.
  • Perform quantitative and qualitative analysis of a range of report data collected by CIRAS, identifying associations, trends and patterns in the data.

  • Contribute analysis to the periodic reporting undertaken by the Reporting and Assurance Manager and to content for shared learning developed by the CIRAS Communications team.
  • An Analyst may have the opportunity to contribute to research projects depending on skills and availability.
