The Information Analyst team’s reporting responsibilities include 18 Weeks Referral to Treatment, National Tariff data processing, key performance indicators, submission of NHS statutory returns and a whole host of contractual reporting requirements for our Commissioners. Responding to the needs of the organisation in areas such as Demand and Capacity, Quality Improvement Initiatives as well as providing information accompanied by a high level of data analysis to help improve quality of care for patients. A key aspect of the role will be working closely with our Clinical Divisions and ensuring the analyst team are aligned with each Division and are on hand to offer expert advice, guidance and analysis.

You should therefore have a good working knowledge of NHS performance frameworks and targets and an understanding of how information can support the Trust in delivering these objectives. Working closely with managers across the organisation, you will have excellent communication skills and be able to develop strategic information reporting solutions that are forward thinking and utilise different types of technology and software.

Ideally, you should have senior level experience within an information role. Advanced skills are also vital together with proven experience in the use of a variety of information reporting databases and toolsets to undertake complex data analysis and transform it into business intelligence.

NHS experience, particularly in an Acute Trust setting is desirable, but not essential.

The Department is looking to move forward in how it reports and analyses information to ensure the correct messages and guidance is provided to the Trust as a whole. You will be required to work with and develop the current team of analysts to build a strong analytical knowledge throughout the team that can be utilised on a consistent basis.

Although primarily based at Doncaster Royal Infirmary there will be an expectation to work across all sites within the Trust.

The interview process will consist of an initial assessment through some teamwork based exercise followed by a formal interview. These will take place in late June, early July.
