NHS Grampian is an intelligence-led organisation known for drawing on high quality analytics to inform public health, planning, performance and improvement. We are looking for experienced, enthusiastic and forward-thinking individuals to join our team.
We have a number of posts available and are looking for people with highly developed skills in: information extraction and manipulation of large datasets; application of relevant statistical approaches to complex problems; identification of data patterns; predictive modelling; information interpretation and data visualisation skills. All of the posts offer the opportunity to work with a broad range of stakeholders such as Public Health consultants, acute sector colleagues and local authorities, along with other health boards and national health bodies.
The team has built an outstandingly positive reputation and we are much in demand, so the ability to deal with pressure is important. In return we can offer flexible and hybrid working arrangements and opportunities for development and progression. Continuous professional development and research are important to us and we provide the opportunity to develop academic links with the University of Aberdeen and the Aberdeen Centre for Health Data Science.
This post will support the Head of Health Intelligence and senior colleagues to plan and schedule the work of the team, anticipate emerging demand and delivery issues, build networks, negotiate and establish priorities. The post-holder will act as the single point of contact for all new requests for data and intelligence from across NHS Grampian, Health and Social Care Partnerships, Local Authorities, the third sector, Scottish Government and Public Health Scotland.
Demonstrable project management, negotiation and performance management skills will be essential for this role, as will expertise in Microsoft Office packages. The post will maintain a high-level overview of workload and timelines for the delivery of priority projects. The post-holder will implement agreed changes to areas of work by actively involving, negotiating and gaining support from key stakeholders, including team members and customers.
Maintaining and improving information governance processes within the team will be a key outcome area for this post. The successful candidate will also help build capacity and knowledge within the Health Intelligence Team to respond to changing demands, and act as a mentor to less experienced team members.
Interviews will be held in early January.
