The post holder will play a key role in providing comprehensive, efficient information and analytics services, focussed on clinical quality, operational efficiency, patient safety and financial opportunity.

The daily role will involve using SQL server and other packages to analyse, visualise and manipulate data, supporting HED development and user queries.

Reporting to the Senior Intelligence Analyst, the successful applicant will be an enthusiastic individual with drive and commitment, who is motivated by achieving, empowering and informing.

Candidates invited to interview will be sent details of a short exercise to prepare in advance. Interviews may be held as a two-stage process, with successful applicants invited back for a second round.

This role is based at Yardley Court, Edgbaston but will initially be based remotely due to the current coronavirus restrictions. The post is currently offered on a 23 month fixed term basis in line with approved funding.

All posts involving access to persons in receipt of health services will be subject to a DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check.

Staff recruited from outside of the NHS will usually be appointed at the bottom of the pay band.

Successful candidates will be automatically enrolled onto the Trust staff bank UHB+.
Applications from job seekers who require sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside other applications.
