Job description

Our Head of Operations, Compliance & Finance role is a new senior management position in the IBD Registry that reflects both our fast growth and increasing maturity. The primary function of this role is the effective management, development and delivery of the key strategic business operations that underpin our work. The wide range of business operations including contracts and performance (grants, clients, suppliers and staff), compliance (data protection, client deliverables reporting, and pharmaceutical industry), staffing (from recruitment onwards) and finance (financial reporting and from budgets, both the main company budget and specific project budgets).  

You will be part of a small and growing and highly collaborative team, reporting directly to and working closely with the CEO.  You will support the CEO with critical operational reporting, in strategic development, taking delegated responsibility for team management and acting as deputy CEO when required.  You will be supported in your work with high-quality advice from our retained specialists in HR, Information Governance, Legal and Accountancy; and operationally within the team by team members who cover the day to day functions including financial and office management, and corporate and healthdata IT.


To be successful in this role you will be a delivery-focused problem-solver, both organised and adaptable, with massive attention to details and a practical hands-on style. You will have senior experience (broadly equivalent to director level) in finance, operations, people and compliance management and be confident and competent working with technical and data projects.  You will have a strong academic qualification record, including postgraduate qualifications in finance or business management. Ideally you will have come from the healthcare or pharmaceutical industries, or as an alternative from a highly-regulated sector where both data protection and delivery are critical.

Above all, you need to believe in our mission and want to join us to make a difference: our small team makes a big difference in IBD across the UK and this needs to be more than ‘just a job’ for you.
