About the Roles

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 are developing our analytical work to monitor the quality of care and to predict the risk of poor care. These roles are within a team that specialises in qualitative analysis and text-based data. This work will help us better understand the experience of care received by people who use the services we regulate.

The role involves both manual and automated analysis to achieve this as CQC works with large secondary qualitative data sets.

This is an exciting time to join our team and we look forward to receiving your application!

About the Team

We currently have 5 vacancies available within the Local Qualitative Intelligence Team.  

The Local Qualitative Intelligence Team design and develop analytical methods that help inspectors to prioritise, plan and inspect services. Our main challenge is to tell meaningful stories from large volumes of qualitative data.

We use several methods of analysis, including traditional methods such as thematic analysis, as well as computer-aided analysis. Experience of MAXQDA, NVivo or other qualitative analysis software is desirable though not essential, as training can be provided. 

The team also undertake primary research to help CQC to understand care. For example, virtual interviews and focus groups are completed annually with inspectors, and findings are included in CQC’s published State of Care report. 

About You

You’ll have:

  • excellent qualitative skills
  • previous experience of working in an analytical and / or research role
  • the ability to problem solve and develop solutions to analytical and data challenges
  • the ability to communicate well with others virtually, in person and in writing
  • the ability to plan, monitor, oversee and complete multiple projects effectively
  • the ability to work well as part of a multi-disciplinary team
  • knowledge and/or experience of qualitative computer aided analysis tools would be an advantage
