This is a great opportunity for an experienced candidate to have an influential role growing Tussell’s Data Quality practice. The role is responsible for delivering excellent data quality standards for organisations working in the UK public sector. Focusing on maintaining and improving Tussell’s market-leading data standards, the role requires excellent attention to detail, good investigative skills, and the ability to work with large datasets. You will receive full internal ‘on-the-job’ training to develop the skills to perform this role.

The role offers annual basic salary of £35,000.



Tussell is the trusted source of insight into UK government procurement contracts and spending - a market worth over £180Bn in 2021 (about 10% of UK GDP). In a climate of almost unprecedented government spending, our market intelligence helps companies to win more public contracts by being informed and proactive. Our data is also used by the government itself to help make the market for public contracts more open and competitive - ultimately improving the delivery of public services.

Spurred on by the growth in public contracts as the state expands, Tussell is doubling in size annually. Our reputation is growing all the time: in 2022 our data was cited over 200 times in the national, regional and trade press – underlining both the political and economic resonance of public contracts as well our position as the market’s reference data source.

Key to our success has been placing data quality at the heart of Tussell, delivering the highest standards in the market whilst continuing to invest in the platform’s growth.
