The Health Foundation is an independent charity committed to bringing about better health and health care for people in the UK.
The Data Architect will work in the Improvement Analytics Unit (IAU) which is part of the Data Analytics team. The team conducts high-quality, in-house research and analysis, and collaborates with the NHS to develop approaches to improve health care that can be applied at local and national levels. Specifically, the successful candidate will support the IAU, a joint unit with NHS England that provides rapid feedback about the effects of new models of care and develops robust approaches to data management and information governance, applying analytics directly to real-world problems.
The successful applicant will work together with the Senior Data Manager to develop and deliver an ambitious data management agenda to support rapid-cycle evaluation. The Data Architect will help ensure that quality control, standardised cleaning and metadata collection is applied to the updating of core datasets used by the IAU, as well as help investigate the potential and use of new data.
The Data Architect will also work closely with statisticians and analysts in the team during the research and development phase of individual evaluations to develop and deliver data specifications and analysis datasets used by the IAU. They will also help to embed the preferred approach to analysis within the production environment. Since the IAU has a complex and dynamic work programme, it is essential to be adaptive and to seek to improve approaches to data management over time. At all times the post holder will aim to embed our key behaviours - working together, achieving impact, discovering and learning – in all aspects of their day-to-day delivery in the role. The Data Architect will be part of a growing group of data management professionals who support work across the Data Analytics directorate, collaborating with a wide range of internal and external partners.
