Part Time
Do you want to use your analytical skills to help improve quality of healthcare in the North East and North Cumbria and beyond?

NEQOS are based in Gosforth, however we offer flexible working options including majority home working and we are flexible about the days / hours needed to fill the up to 0.5 WTE hours.

Although this recruitment is fixed-term we have a track record of converting fixed-term roles to permanent positions once suitable funding is gained and we would hope to continue that with this role.

We would consider a secondment for the position, although you must obtain permission from your current line manager prior to applying for the post.

Main duties of the job

The successful candidate will have a key role to play in supporting the many and varied projects NEQOS is delivering for NHS organisations, the Academic Health Science Network (AHSN), NICE and other stakeholders. Some of these projects, will involve innovative approaches to measurement for improvement.

This role requires strong, specialist information skills developed at postgraduate level or equivalent, underpinned by theory and practice, with regard to designing systems, handling sensitive data, automating data processing and data presentation and interpretation. Good communication and interpersonal skills are required as the post holder will work closely with a wide range of staff both within and external to NEQOS.

There will be opportunity for the successful candidate to work on different projects and internal training will be offered to further develop their skills.

About us

We aim to attract and retain a diverse, talented and committed workforce, who are caring and compassionate, and therefore able to meet the demands of the modern NHS now and in the future. In return we can offer a dynamic working environment in which to build a career.

Since 2009 the North East Quality Observatory Service (NEQOS) has been providing a quality measurement service to NHS commissioners and providers across the North East region and our service is now available nationwide.

NEQOS is jointly hosted by two NHS Foundation Trusts and is an NHS organisation that has become a hub for healthcare quality measurement in the region, where we deliver an ambitious programme of projects and services to providers, teams and organisations.
