The IBD Registry is the first and largest repository of pseudonymised UK IBD data, and our mission is to use that collated and curated data to provide better understanding of IBD, to enable better treatments, better medicine, and better information for clinicians and for patients. We’re looking for a motivated and organised Technical Manager to manage the data-related tools, systems and processes that are at the heart of our service: the clinical Webtool (and related toolset) that we provide to hospitals, its data and its platform; the data interactions with our University specialists; and, of course, our hospital users who use the system to enter data, working at all times within a strict information governance framework that ensures the safeguarding of this essential health data.
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.
We are seeking a Technical Manager to be responsible for maintaining, updating and using the data-related tools, systems and processes of the IBD Registry (including primarily the clinical Webtool) and interfacing with data and technical platforms that interface with them (including NHS Digital, the software company and the secure web hosting company). The Technical Manager critically supports the client service teams by configuring the system, its data and its reports to provide the inputs that they require. We will provide in-depth training in our Webtool toolbase and third party elements such as Sitefinity software so that this role will become the primary knowledge base within our organisation for the tools we use and the data that flows through them. 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.
The Technical Manager will work closely with the Clinical Lead for Data Capture as well as the CEO to ensure we provide a high quality service to our users, including overseeing preparation and sending of the many reports required and for maintaining the related client records for the Trusts. 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.
