The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) is the independent organisation responsible for providing national guidance and advice on promoting high quality health, public health and social care.

Our role is to improve outcomes for people using the NHS and other public health and social care services. We do this by:

• Producing evidence-based guidance and advice for health, public health and social care practitioners.
• Developing quality standards and performance metrics for those providing and commissioning health, public health and social care services;
• Providing a range of information services for commissioners, practitioners and managers across the spectrum of health and social care.

Please note, if the advertised role is based in London and is on an Agenda for Change Pay Band, it will attract a High Cost Area Supplement. No other roles attract this supplement.

After applying via NHS Jobs, your submitted application will be imported into our preferred Third-party recruitment system.

If you are appointed to a post, information will also be transferred into the NHS Electronic Staff Records system.

You will not be able to track the progress of your application or receive messages through NHS Jobs, and furthermore, as an employer, we will not be able to respond to any e-mails sent to us via NHS Jobs. If you have a query relating to your application, please contact the recruitment team on nice.hrqueries@nhsbsa.nhs.uk or 0300 330 1236.

The NHSBSA is responsible for the processing of your application; a privacy notice is attached to advise you on how we will process your personal data.

This is an exciting job that presents a unique combination of opportunities: not only will you apply cutting-edge quantitative methods to conduct original, high-quality research, you will also present it to national policy-makers and contribute to their decision-making.

You also get the satisfaction of knowing your work will directly improve health and social care in England. See our ‘week in the life’ document for an illustrative indication of what you can expect to do.

The role:

We are recruiting a Band 8A Senior technical analyst (economic modelling). Working collaboratively within a small multidisciplinary team, you will provide advice and technical support to committees on economic issues during development and updating of guidelines. This includes systematically identifying and appraising economic evidence to address key health and social care questions and preparing structured summaries of the evidence.

You will also undertake the development of original, applied decision models and analyses that will be used to inform the deliberations of the guideline committee (comprising decision-makers who are predominantly clinical, public health, social care and patient experts with limited formal expertise in economics).

Providing a quality assurance function, you will be involved in reviewing guidelines produced by other developers to ensure that they reflect the economic evidence appropriately.

When undertaking quality assurance, you will also ensure that economic modelling and statistical analyses produced by the developer have been conducted robustly, are in line with NICE’s methods and are free from technical errors.

You will also have the opportunity to mentor junior analysts.

What you will bring to NICE:

The primary requirement for the position of Senior technical analyst (economic modelling) is demonstrable ability in the practical application of mathematical modelling to inform real-world decision problems.

  • You should have skills and experience in decision-analytic modelling, ideally gained in the context of economic evaluation for health, public health or social care.
  • Expert skills in the analysis and synthesis of quantitative data are essential, as is the ability to communicate the methods and results of complex analyses to a range of audiences, both orally and in writing.
  • At present, the team has a preference for models developed in MS Excel, R, TreeAge and/or WinBUGS; however, applications from candidates with experience in other platforms are welcome.

You will have the opportunity to extend your own skills in modelling and economics and contribute to methodological developments in the field.

Our Senior technical analysts are supported to publish their research in high-impact journals and to present at international conferences. The post will be line-manged by a Band 8B Technical adviser (economics).

Why NICE:

Here at NICE we are passionate and proud of the work we do and the impact we make.

We can offer you a great place to work with good benefits, flexible working and a supportive, friendly and inclusive environment.

We have an academic culture committed to producing high quality work and we take collective responsibility.

The department:

The Centre for Guidelines is a world-leading authority in developing clinical, public health and social care guidelines. It provides recommendations for the NHS and local authorities on appropriate prevention, treatment and care options for people in England, based on systematic appraisal of the best available evidence of effectiveness and cost effectiveness.

Closing date for applications: 12 August 2019. No late applications will be accepted.

Interview date: 13 September 2019

NICE will be moving its central London office to a brand new complex in Stratford in the Autumn of 2020. Please give this consideration when applying for current London based vacancies.

No agencies please.
