ELFT (East London NHS Foundation Trust) is making a positive difference to thousands of people’s lives, providing support so that they can fulfil their potential and enjoy healthy lives.

The Trust has decided to embrace quality as the overarching principle for the organisation and set its longer-term mission to improve the quality of life for all we serve. By 2022, ELFT will build on its success and lead on the delivery of integrated care. ELFT will do this by working purposefully in collaboration with our communities and our partners, always striving towards continuous improvement in everything it does.

The primary purpose of the Quality Improvement (QI) Programme will be to oversee the transformation of the culture of the Trust to one of continuous improvement, which is delivered through participation of all staff in the design, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of a large number of Plan, Do, Study, Act (PDSA) / small-scale projects via a multi-year organisation-wide programme. The Programme is unique one for the organisation in terms of breadth, depth and timescale.

We are looking for an enthusiastic and dynamic Improvement Analytics lead to join our well-established team. The post holder will work with the Quality Improvement Team to lead the development of the Trusts integrated dashboards. This will entail data extraction and manipulation using SQL, data visualisation using business intelligence (Power BI) and improvement analytics.
The post holder will have excellent SQL skills, experience of using Power BI and the ability to present complex data in a simple, creative manner.  The Quality Improvement Teams data driven approach requires the post holder to have an excellent understanding of statistical principles such as variance and probability distributions. We require someone highly organised and analytical with a deep understanding of data visualisation and the different techniques that come with it.

The post offers an excellent opportunity to work within an internationally recognised organisation that puts quality at the heart of what we do. There will be opportunity to undertake various different quality improvement courses, and potentially become a Quality Improvement Coach.
