Nest is the National Employment Savings Trust. It was set up by the government to give every worker in the UK somewhere to save for retirement. We’ve since grown to become one of the UK’s largest schemes.




To best serve our diverse customer base, it’s important that Nest has an equally diverse workforce and promotes an inclusive culture. This is in line with the organisation’s values and ensures that Nest is a corporation fit for the future.


Your new team:


Nest is on a path to use its data to drive decision making, and we’re just at the beginning of the journey. The new Data & Analytics directorate is leading how we do it, working across the organisation because data is a team sport – if we’re going to be successful, we need to make sure that our data delivers what the organisation needs. We work closely with TCS to deliver what the organisation needs right now, and we’re also part of the team that is working with Atos on designing the future.


The directorate includes:


Business Intelligence (was Scheme MI) – with a plan to get our data and analysis out to the organisation through a new business intelligence hub on Penny, with data from TCS & Atos and across the organisation. The BI team start with the data at source and deliver lovely data visualisation to make data intuitive to understand.


Data management – building a plan for how we manage our data as an enterprise, not in silos


Insight management – working with Atos to make sure the right data & insight flows between the organisations


Data strategy – working on Nest’s data literacy, data governance, and a strategy for how we can all collaborate to make our data a useful shared asset for Nest
