You will be required to analyse and interpret complex data and develop software solutions to present this data to colleagues across the Trust in ways which are easily understood.

You will be a technical specialist, working alongside clinical and non-clinical colleagues, third party suppliers and senior managers, to suggest and implement solutions, monitoring and reporting on activity and maintaining standards of working in accordance with agreed design and project protocols.
