This is an exciting opportunity to join one of the largest central economics teams solely focused on healthcare in England.

The NHS Improvement Economics team plays a key role in supporting the NHS in the face of unprecedented challenges, from rising demand and constraints on funding. We do this by providing impactful and rigorous economic thinking, based on the best available evidence, to support the drive towards better quality and more efficiently delivered services.

As an Economic Analyst, you will apply your economic expertise to a wide range of healthcare settings and challenges and have the exciting opportunity to work across a broad range of projects, including:

  • Analytical projects to improve NHS Improvement’s understanding of the economics of healthcare, with focus on issues like operational performance; system finances and labour market dynamics.
  • ‘Partner working’ on projects for NHSI’s other directorates. For example: supporting the Pricing team with the development of new payment models; and supporting the Regulation team in working with trusts to improve financial sustainability.
  • Providing analysis on choice and competition in healthcare to our Regulation and Transactions teams, in particular, in the context of merger review policy.

Your work, informed by robust and evidence-based analysis, will play a key role in influencing decision making by senior staff within NHS Improvement and NHS England (e.g. the Executive team, Board and Divisional Directors) as well as externally (e.g. the Department of Health and Social Care and the Competition and Markets Authority).

We are looking for someone educated to at least degree level in economics with a post-graduate qualification (Masters/ PhD) in a relevant discipline, or experience of working as an economist at an equivalent level. You will have excellent project management skills and the ability to work flexibly across a range of projects and clients.

You will also have good understanding of statistics and econometric modelling, a proven record in delivering insightful quantitative and qualitative analysis and excellent written and oral communication skills. Successful candidates will also have strong interpersonal skills and the ability to develop good working relationships with stakeholders from across the healthcare system.

We will be holding an open evening at our offices in Wellington House on Monday 25th February 2019 (6pm-7pm) for prospective candidates to discuss the role, organisation and team. For details and to confirm your attendance please email rebecca.hand1@nhs.net. Interviews will be held in the weeks commencing 25 March and 1 April 2019.

For further details and to apply please click the apply button.

Closing date: 3 March 2019.

NHS Improvement is responsible for overseeing foundation trusts, NHS trusts and independent providers. We offer the support these providers need to give patients consistently safe, high quality, compassionate care within local health systems that are financially sustainable. By holding providers to account and, where necessary, intervening, we help the NHS to meet its short-term challenges and secure its future.
