Senior Data Manager, Networked Data Lab

£57,368 - £62,020 (dependent upon experience) per annum plus benefits

Full time (37.5 hours per week; flexible working requests will be considered)

Fixed term contract to June 2023

Our office is located at Salisbury Square, London EC4Y but we have moved to a hybrid way of working.  Details available upon request.

The Health Foundation is an independent charity committed to bringing about better health and health care for people in the UK.

The Networked Data Lab provides national and local health system leaders with insights from data to take action in order to improve the UK’s health and care. We are a collaborative network of analytical teams across the UK working together using linked datasets on key issues facing health and care services.

We are looking for a Senior Data Manager to work collaboratively with colleagues to support an ambitious programme of data analytics and data curation and standardization.

The successful candidate will work with the team to communicate the value of innovative data linkage, and routine datasets, to the public and to policy makers; and will engage with senior stakeholders on data curation and standardisation, developing partnerships with health and care organisations across the UK. You will lead data management, data curation and information governance work to support the in-house analytic work-programme, with a particular focus on the Networked Data Lab.

Suitably qualified, and ideally with a proficiency in statistical or data management software (ideally R), our ideal candidate will have a successful track record of developing and building data access solutions and demonstrable experience of data management and data standardisation, ideally with experience of developing novel methods. You will have extensive knowledge of current developments in data curation and data standardisation and a well-developed professional network.

To be successful in the role of Senior Data Manager you must understand the UK data access landscape, especially the legal, regulatory and access framework for accessing data for research purposes. Equally as important will be your ability to work collaboratively, and proactively engage with colleagues and external partners. This is an emerging environment and you will be able to work flexibly, respond to changing priorities, and adapt and persevere to deliver outcomes.

If the role excites you we would love to hear from you. For further information please refer to the full job description.

To apply for this role please submit your CV and a supporting statement which addresses all the person specification criteria flagged as CV/SS (Essential). More details can be found in our application pack. Applications without a supporting statement will not be considered.

Application deadline:                          Monday 6 December 2021, 23:59

Interviews scheduled for:                    Wednesday 15 – Friday 17 December 2021
