Job Description

We are looking for a Senior Data Analyst to lead analytics on our Operations team supporting them on scaling and mobilising our clinics, expansion to devolved nations, monitoring the quality of our supplier data captured in clinics, analysing the performance of our clinics against contractual SLAs, identifying inefficiencies in clinic operations, monitoring biosample logistics and analysis of participant support.

Our Future Health will be the UK’s largest ever health research programme, bringing people together to develop new ways to detect, prevent and treat diseases. We are a charity, supported by the UK Government, in partnership with charities and industry. We work closely with the NHS and with public authorities across all nations and regions of the UK.

Despite big improvements in healthcare in our lifetimes, today millions of people in the UK still live in poor health as they get older. Diseases like cancer, dementia, diabetes, and heart disease affect the lives of many people in our communities. Our goal is to create a world-leading resource for health research, to improve our understanding and spot the patterns of how and why common diseases start, so treatments can begin sooner and be more effective.
