Ep. 22 How can data help the public sector? Steve Caughey - National Innovation Centre for Data

On this week’s episode of Public Sector Voices, Emily is joined by the Director of National Innovation Centre for Data, Steve Caughey, to highlight the potential of using data to it’s full potential within the public sector and beyond.
 

At less than two years old, the centre is at the start of its journey to equip the public and private sector with the skills needed to harness the unlimited power of data. 
 

With just under half of Europe’s organisations currently struggling to fill data analytics role - which incidentally are handsomely paid - Steve explains how we are a long way from being able to satisfy the demand.
 

Steve warns of the dangers of outsourcing your data, saying that ‘outsourcing your data is the same thing as outsourcing your innovation’ and if you take a look at the world today, we need innovation now more than ever.
 

With real examples of using data to make the lives of the people better, the podcast is there for people who know all there is to know about data, and those who don’t. 
 

Particular emphasis is put on the potential of using data on the interface between health and social care, to create a more integrated and efficient service. Not one to be missed.

Ep 48. Achieving Net Zero - Cllr Abdul Jabbar - Oldham Council

As central government aims for the UK to be net zero by 2050, councils around the country make plans for how to reduce emissions. This episode’s guest, Oldham’s Councillor Abdul Jabbar outlines the importance of coming together to reduce the nation’s carbon footprint, the benefits of achieving net zero, and how Oldham Council are working to do just that.
 

Touching on the role that the public sector can play in sustainability, Cllr Jabbar said:
 

“I think it’s really important that the public sector gives true leadership in this space. I think something like one third of the carbon emissions in the country come from the public sector, so obviously we’re a big polluter in terms of the emissions.”
 

Councillor Jabbar also spoke about challenges being faced by organisations:
 

“I think the biggest one has been finance. Clearly the local government sector in particular has had its grants cut from central government by a huge amount and that’s had a very big impact in terms of our plans to take forward projects in relation to climate change, so that’s a major issue.”
 

To hear what Cllr Jabbar has to say about the mission to achieve net zero carbon emissions, listen to the latest episode of the Public Sector Executive Podcast.
