Senior Analyst - Clinical Coder

Salary £35,000

At the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) we enable and deliver world-class research that transforms people’s lives, promotes economic growth and advances science. We manage public investment in excess of £450million per annum and provide bespoke expertise to charitable and commercial organisations to get the most out of their research funding. The NIHR Central Commissioning Facility (CCF), based at LGC Ltd, is one of NIHR’s Coordinating Centres and manages a number of research funding programmes on behalf of NIHR and the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC). LGC’s Grant Management Group are experts in managing research funding to maximise its impact.

The Research Information team within CCF Information Services are responsible for maintaining an understanding and answering questions about the NIHR funded research. This team is vital to helping key stakeholders in government and elsewhere understand and justify how we spend taxpayer’s money. We have an exciting opportunity in the Research Information Team for someone who wants to develop and apply their health research skills in a role that is vital to the future of NIHR research.

Job purpose:

The role of the Senior Analyst (Clinical Coder) is to support the Research Information Manager (RIM) in developing and maintaining the research information management functions for CCF.  This is a great opportunity for a candidate with a previous background in research and with significant experience in clinical coding or a discipline with a similar methodology to use these skills in a research management environment. The successful candidate will gain a detailed working knowledge of the CCF-managed research portfolio including all programmes and Infrastructure. The candidate will use coding approaches to classify the research portfolio and respond to parliamentary questions and other requests for information from the client (NIHR/DHSC).

To be successful in this role, you will need an appreciation of the information issues affecting researchers, the Department of Health and Social Care, the National Institute for Health Research and the NHS. This role involves working across CCF and the NIHR, and therefore excellent interpersonal skills are essential. There will often be periods of high-level activity, so you should have a systematic approach to workload management, and a commitment to work as part of a team.
