Sukanya Guha, Data Analyst, Registry Trust
Thursday, 12th May 2022
Registry Trust, the not-for-profit organisation which maintains the Register of Judgments, Orders and Fines, is pleased to introduce our new Data Analyst, Sukanya Guha.
Sukanya’s role will be to support Registry Trust’s mission to share its ‘public data for public good’ to inform credit and lending decisions, responsible borrowing, the economy, policy, regulation and more, by identifying and disseminating insights to our key stakeholders. She says:
“When I first saw the job description for the Data Analyst role at Registry Trust, it matched with my skillset and experience technically, but I was also attracted to the importance of the organisation and socio-economic impact of the data. The more I learned about Registry Trust, I knew instantly that its purpose was aligned with my values, which was very appealing to me.
“Data Analysis can be seen as very ‘dry’, but I believe that every number has a story to tell and that telling the story behind the data is the key to making it useful and giving it a purpose. Registry Trust’s data is particularly relevant to current issues such as the cost of living crisis, gas prices, and inflation, and, while challenging, it is an interesting and exciting time to be joining this sector in this role. I’m looking forward to working with the team to connect the data to the most pressing issues facing those in financial difficulty and using it to reach out to key stakeholders to bring about change.
“This week is Mental Health Awareness Week and, as this blog by Registry Trust’s CEO Lex Jones highlights, there is a clear link between mental health and financial health. The negative cycle of mental distress and financial difficulty is widely acknowledged, and an area of particular concern to me. I am keen to explore the relationship between mental health and CCJ debt, which there is currently no specific data on.”
