CQC is the regulator of Health and Adult Social Care services. The Intelligence unit is an important part of this.  We provide evidence for CQC’s regulatory decisions and publications through the analysis, interpretation and presentation of data.

We now have an opportunity available for an Analyst Team Leader (Data Science) in the Intelligence unit. We are looking for someone who can help us develop new analytical methods to inform our decisions and publications, and develop these into operational products.

We are at the beginning of this work, and this is a good opportunity to be a leader and shape our products, processes, and capabilities in this area.
