Job description

The Health Foundation is an independent charity committed to bringing about better health and health care for people in the UK.

The Networked Data Lab is a new data analytics initiative that will build a collaborative network of analytical teams across the UK and use linked datasets to produce insights on critical areas of population health and health care. The data analyst will work collaboratively with colleagues to support an ambitious programme of data analysis. Working with the Senior Analytical Manager, you will contribute to the design of research protocols and will work closely with local partners in the Networked Data Lab to conduct high quality analyses.

Suitably qualified, and with demonstrable experience of working with major datasets in health and ideally social care, you will ideally be able to evidence a successful track record of working in a team to deliver analytical work programmes. You will have an understanding of health policy and the operation of health services in the UK and be an expert in R, preferably with exposure to other programming languages.

The successful candidate will be able to work both collaboratively and independently and will be able to review relevant literature, synthesise available evidence, identify suitable statistical and analytical techniques and then apply these techniques to problems. Equally important will be your ability to identify key messages from analysis.

This is a fantastic opportunity for a data analyst with a passion for improving health outcomes and a commitment to our core behaviours - Working Together, Discovering & Learning and Achieving Impact.
