Do you enjoy investigating data, developing innovative reports and presenting your findings in a visually creative way? Are you a problem solver who strives to improve data quality?
We are seeking a part time Data Analyst to join our small, dedicated and enthusiastic Business Intelligence Team. This is an exciting opportunity to join a busy team that supports the continuous improvement and performance management of Dorset Clinical Commissioning Group’s Personal Health Commissioning (PHC) Service.
You should have an open and inquisitive mind and be prepared to question and investigate data anomalies. The applicant must have excellent analytical and Excel skills (including the use of pivot tables and advanced formulas) and must be able to manipulate large data sets to produce informative, timely and accurate reports to monitor the operational trends and performance of the Dorset PHC service. You should have excellent communication skills and feel confident presenting and explaining outputs to a range of different end users.
The position will require the successful applicant to continuously assess data quality and identify and work with various colleagues to resolve issues. You will also be required to manage specific aspects of the IT systems used by the PHC service liaising with both system users and providers.
Previous experience of working as a data analyst is essential and ideally within the NHS. A good working knowledge of the National Framework for Continuing Health Care and NHS-funded Nursing Care is desirable BUT not essential as full training will be given. You must be able to work independently using your own initiative and to integrate well with our team.
This is a part time position of 30 hours per week working Monday to Friday between the hours of 9am to 5pm, hours and days to be agreed. The position is currently working from home but the base for this role is Vespasian House in Dorchester should we return to the office.
Using our clinical understanding, we strive to lead continuous improvements to health and care services in Dorset. Our key mission is to support people in Dorset to lead healthier lives, for longer.
This mission sets out our ultimate purpose. It defines what we must aim to achieve every day, through every decision and every interaction we have as an organisation. It also incorporates our vision statement. Our mission statement is explained as follows:
- 'Supporting people' reflects our role of commissioning services for those who fall ill and in preventing illness in the first place. It also recognises the need for us to support people to manage their own health and to work with them to do this successfully.
- We have a duty of care for all people while they are 'in Dorset' - not just Dorset residents.
- 'Healthier lives' is the ultimate outcome we are aiming for. It reflects a need to prevent illness (e.g. through education), as well as recognising the need to provide timely services for everyone.
As a clinical commissioning group we have a responsibility as leaders within the health economy. Our unique position as clinicians also allows us to view things differently.
We already have an excellent health service in Dorset but, excellent services can still, and must, be improved to reflect a continually changing economy and society. By using our clinical understanding and different perspective we can drive continuous improvements, not just in health care but across all services within Dorset.
