Senior Data Manager

Fixed term until December 2022

Salisbury Square, EC4Y  

The Networked Data Lab is a new data analytics initiative that will build a collaborative network of analytical teams across the UK. Partners will work collaboratively with each other and with a team at the Health Foundation to deliver data-driven insights on shared problems facing the health and care system. The Senior Data Manager will work collaboratively with colleagues to support an ambitious programme of data analytics, data curation and standardization, and data linkage.

The successful candidate will work with the team to communicate the value of innovative data linkage, and routine datasets, to the public and to policy makers; and will engage with senior stakeholders on data curation and standardisation, developing partnerships with health and care organisations across the UK. You will lead data management, data curation and information governance work to support the in-house analytic work-programme, with a particular focus on the Networked Data Lab.

Suitably qualified, and ideally with a proficiency in statistical or data management software (ideally R), our ideal candidate will have a successful track record of developing and building data access solutions and demonstrable experience of data management and data standardisation, ideally with experience of developing novel methods. You will have extensive knowledge of current developments in data curation and data standardisation and a well-developed professional network.

To be successful in the role of Senior Data Manager you must understand the UK data access landscape, especially the legal, regulatory and access framework for accessing data for research purposes. Equally as important will be your ability to work collaboratively, and proactively engage with colleagues and external partners. This is an emerging environment and you will be able to work flexibly, respond to changing priorities, and adapt and persevere to deliver outcomes.

This is a fantastic opportunity for an experienced Data Manager who is committed to our core behaviours - Working Together, Discovering & Learning and Achieving Impact. If the role excites you we would love to hear from you. 

Interview date: 14 January 2020
