Job Description

Our client is seeking contractor services for a business analyst for the Jobs and Education Data Infrastructure (JEDI) project.

The Role:

The JEDI project aims to link jobs, skills and education data into an engine to develop insights, new data sets and user friendly tools. It provides a single comprehensive Australian source of up-to-date information about jobs, skills and education to answer the questions individuals, businesses, education providers and policy makers have about the changing labour market. JEDI will be a repository of labour market related data which can be used by multiple users and tools with broad application of core insights. The JEDI project is being driven by the Future of Work Branch and the seller will report to this branch. We are looking for an organisation who can bring the following capabilities/deliverables to the JEDI project: • Fully develop up to four government use cases. o Initial user centred design has been undertaken with documentation at a conceptual level. The seller would need to facilitate workshops and dialogues with policy and systems stakeholders to identify, plan and deliver JEDI-enabling use cases and document business requirements. o This will require experience in communicating abstract concepts, aspirational ideas and innovative functionality and helping stakeholders to articulate potential connections to both identified and unidentified business requirements and translating these into business and system processes. o Business requirements will need to feed into the development of a new data science platform that enables the department to move a model from the development environment to production. • Document data requirements o The document would clearly set out the data which satisfy the business requirements and assess its readiness and priority for on boarding to the new JEDI data science platform. o To develop the requirements the seller would need to work with data custodians to identify and troubleshoot on boarding issues such as data variables and format, access, data quality and updates. o The document will include a detailed analysis of the project’s data gaps and the data attributes that would be required to fill these gaps. • Develop a project plan o The project plan will apply project management principles, document design and development procedures, functional specifications and resource requirements in collaboration with stakeholders. o The project plan will need to take into account the opportunities and dependencies of related data infrastructure projects underway across the Department and its key stakeholders. o The seller will need to work with the data scientists in the JEDI Data Analytics teams to establish sprint work planning structures and processes. o The seller will need work with IT security and data teams to identify build options that satisfy both user needs and security requirements. • Support and guide project implementation and decision making.
