Since April, I've been working as part of the Data and Search team. It's a new team so we've been figuring out what we do, what we don't do, how we work together and with other people. And we've made a fair bit of progress in identifying what's currently broken and how to fix it.
This is the Data & Search team's second set of fortnight notes. The idea is to keep an ongoing, public record of what we're doing. We'll iterate the notes with a view to making them better over time.
The Data & Search team are following the lead of the Website Alpha team by publishing a short update on activity on a regular basis.

I have been the Head of Data & Search for 6 weeks, working in Emma Allen’s Digital Development team. It is a new role, and I’m fortunate because it’s something that I wanted to do for a while.
