Join us as our new Data Analyst/Developer
We are a national organisation, active with hospitals and healthcare professionals across the UK, but still only a small company ‘behind the scenes’ – which means that this is a real opportunity to be involved across the whole spectrum in health data management, including exposure at high levels and external meetings – a great role for a graduate looking for their next role to progress in their career.
The IBD Registry was started ten years ago and now is the largest UK-wide repository of certain patient data for those suffering from inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) such as Crohn’s and Colitis. By bringing this data together, we can help transform outcomes for these patients: improve how they are cared for medically, about better understanding the drugs prescribed, about understanding the patterns of the diseases and in providing a platform for ongoing research.
Originally a project within the British Society of Gastroenterologists, the IBD Registry has grown so much, especially over the past few years, that it has now formed into an independent limited not-for-profit company to allow it to continue to grow and fulfil its mission. We have a small office team but our full UK-wide team includes top clinicians (various hospitals around UK) and data scientists (University of Liverpool). We are looking for some great new talent to join our small but lively team as we embark on our next growth stage.
Our Data Analyst/Developer role is an exciting new role to support our development work in building our national healthdata warehouse (encoding clinically developed methodologies in SQL as well as involvement in the database design), as well as maintaining our clinical data capture tools (primarily the SQL-based data management engine but also the web-based user interface). Our new Data Analyst/Developer will be critically involved in the curation and transformation of the IBD datasets required for the Hub, plus other smaller healthcare data projects ongoing that require similar skillset in structured data manipulation, using advanced Excel techniques. Maintaining security of patient data is paramount; we will provide full training in Information Governance (IG) and passing the IG certification is a condition of the role.
Our clients are mainly hospital trusts and our specialists are medical clinicians (doctors), so exposure to the medical world is helpful but not necessary.
We offer 25 days holiday each year plus usual Bank Holidays; a 5% employer’s contribution to your pension. We are a young growing company, and so there is great scope for skills development and real career development opportunity.
Our ideal candidate has a strong academic background in data science or systems engineering with a demonstrable understanding or practical structured data management (including SQL), a year of work experience or equivalent, a positive approach coupled with the attention to detail inherent in a data management role, and is above all a willingness and ability to learn fast to come on board with what is one of the leading edge projects in health data curation today
