Are you passionate about data, strategy, leadership and would you love to build a community around our data champions?

Bring your superb collaboration and communication skills to the table and be part of leading our data strategy and communities to the next level!

Core Responsibilities

We're looking for an awesome colleague to head up the newly founded "Data Strategy and Community" team. As part of this role, you will:

• Craft the strategy for data which will be the north star and lay the foundation for key actions we need to drive across our organisation.
• Build, grow and lead your team
• Build a community for our data practitioners to share knowledge internally to set standards for data analysis, data driven insights and data driven story telling but also externally by attending conferences, events etc.
• Engage and partner up with universities, technology companies and other relevant potential partners
• Drive a data literacy initiative on how to drive value from data
• Lead data ethics initiatives to ensure that the business is consistently using data in the right way

Play your part in our team succeeding

The role of the Data Office is to drive value from data across the LEGO Group. Our team builds and runs our central Data Platform, and is a center of Excellence for data science, machine learning and artificial intelligence.

In addition, the Data Office is the hub of a community of data practitioners. We promote data literacy, ethics and good governance, and are ambassadors for the responsible use of data to drive growth.

We have a strong ambition to become a truly data-driven company so this role offers a lot of opportunity to bring impact, influence and set a strategic direction. Your team currently consists of 2 people but you will be responsible for growing and building it.

Joining our LEGO® family means you're part of something big and meaningful. Work life balance and flexibility are part of our culture that is centred around great collaboration, flat hierarchies, and having fun at work.

Do you have what it takes?

As a person, your peers recognize you as an outstanding communicator, collaborator and facilitator who easily connects and builds trusting relations with people inside and outside the organization. You understand how to lead people, not by controlling or commanding but by leading by example and empowering others to excel.

We imagine you have a background as a Data Analyst or Data Scientist combined with leadership and strategic experience. We would love to see experience in building sustainable communities of practice as well as partnering with universities and companies. At some point in your career, you have probably worked in consultancy or/and a marketing agency.
