Do you want to contribute to a world-leading research database on children and young people's cancer, assessing the impact of Covid-19 on clinical outcomes? Do you have exceptional data management skills and are you looking for the next challenge? Are you able to juggle multiple tasks and see them through to completion?
You will manage all aspects of the cancer registration process for the Yorkshire Specialist Register of Cancer in Children and Young People ensuring compliance with the specified Register requirements and standards. You will have responsibility for collecting high quality demographic and clinical data for all new registrations from 16 different acute hospital Trusts across the Yorkshire and the Humber geographical area; approximately 400 new registrations are made annually. This will involve liaison with a wide range of people across the National Cancer Registration and Analysis Service (NCRAS), Public Health England and the NHS, including IT, patient services offices, nurses and GPs.
We are seeking a 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 have strong IT skills to manage and process electronic data feeds from multiple providers. Responsibility for data quality and organisation of local and national meetings is integral to the position. Therefore, excellent attention to detail and self-management skills for planning and prioritising are essential.
You will be based within the Yorkshire Register research group which carries out a programme of epidemiology and applied health research, including the impact of Covid-19 on cancer survival and other clinical outcomes. You will assist the Registry Statistician with data cleaning and quality assurance and support the process for ethical and regulatory approval. Occasional travel is required to visit designated hospitals for the abstraction of data from patients’ case notes.
