A leading foundation in the field of healthcare improvement across the UK has a unique contract opportunity available for an experienced Senior Data Manager who has a proven track record of working with relevant stakeholders in NHS organisations, such as clinicians, commissioners and ideally senior policy makers (or similar senior stakeholders in non-NHS organisations). Part-time and flexible working requests will be considered. Fixed term contract June 2023.

You will work with data controllers at local partners to identify legal gateways, maintain data security, manage remote access and harmonise datasets where necessary. This will include working with the team to describe meta-data and dataset structure, working with relevant external contacts to negotiate permissions for data use, and drafting data sharing agreements. Alongside managing data access, the Senior Data Manager will work with partner organisations and in house teams to demonstrate the value of data stewardship. This will involve investigating and demonstrating the feasibility of new data linkages across traditional sector boundaries, developing harmonized data layers and standardised definitions that can be used consistently across datasets, settings and locations, and facilitating the development of shared learning across partners.

The post holder will bring in best practices in data stewardship from other domains and local expertise from partners, working towards developing strategies to improve efficiency of data access and use in health and care. The post holder will share the experiences and learnings internally and externally through blogs, presentations and meetings.

You will have the following skills and experiences:

* An appetite and drive to ensure data and data-driven technology improves health in the UK
* Demonstrable experience of developing and building data access solutions, including methods of accessing data remotely
* Proven track record in data management and data standardisation, ideally with experience of developing novel methods
* Extensive knowledge of current developments in data curation and data standardisation
* Proficient in statistical or data management software (ideally R) to an advanced level
