Our mission is to provide better understanding based on data, to improve care of and treatments for patients, better information for clinicians and other stakeholders, with the aim throughout of improving outcomes for patients. We are a small not-for-profit organisation playing a big role in improving people’s lives.  We work directly with hospitals, doctors and nurses across the UK; with drug studies, with the NHS, as well as with key Universities including Liverpool (biostatistics).  We are deeply involved in the fast-moving and exciting area of health data, and the technologies that underpin and transform that data.  This is a great role for someone who wants to use their skills and experience to make a difference.

The role

We’re looking for a motivated and organised Operations Manager to lead on management of our ongoing service operations and our new projects stream, as well as the information governance and general compliance that underpins both of these.  Our ongoing service operations are in support of hospital care by IBD clinical teams (specialist doctors and nurses) all over the UK, of studies by clinicians into IBD and into drug safety.  Our new projects stream is in setting up new studies, including pharmacovigilance studies, quality improvement initiatives and support for NHS, working with our clinical teams and also with other stakeholders such as the pharmaceutical industry and NHS bodies. We are looking for someone who is organised, methodical and motivated, with experience of team and project management, has a structured problem solving approach and a can-do attitude.  The team is small and needs to work closely in support of each other (as well as in support of clients), so good interpersonal skills and communications skills are essential.  Ideally, our candidate would have an interest in (or in learning about) healthtech (especially data), and the world of hospitals, clinicians and pharmaceutical companies that we support and engage with.  Candidates should be confident in working in a data and technical orientated environment, an understanding of information governance and compliance generally.  This is a new role, and so there is real opportunity to make a positive impact from day one by helping to innovate and continually seek ways to improve our business processes.
