Job Description

Do you want to contribute to a world-leading paediatric intensive care national audit and research project which impacts the care of critically ill children? Do you have strong data management skills and excellent attention to detail? Are you looking for the next challenge and do you want to apply your skills to improve the functionality and usability of a key national clinical resource? 

Established in 2001 and coordinated by the Universities of Leeds and Leicester, the Paediatric Intensive Care Audit Network (PICANet) is a world-leading national clinical audit project, collating details of the treatment and transfer of all critically ill children in Paediatric Intensive Care Units in the UK and Republic of Ireland. Utilising an expanding clinical audit dataset (already in excess of 360,000 event records), the project examines quality of care among severely ill children and facilitates the planning of future health service research and interventions. 

We are seeking a Project Data Manager to join our team. You should have a relevant degree (minimum 2:2) and significant hands-on experience of data management.  

You will be responsible for liaising with clinical and academic colleagues, to agree and produce database specifications and testing database functionality. You will assist the Database Manager and Statistician with data cleaning and quality assurance.  You will support the process for approval of data release to third parties. Effective communication and interpersonal skills will be essential in building rapport with collaborative colleagues at the University of Leicester as well as NHS Trust staff, providing support and guidance to ensure accurate reporting of information into the database. While the post is based on the University of Leeds campus, travel to meetings or to visit other organisations, in particular NHS Trusts, will be required on occasion.
