Data Analyst / Senior Data Analyst 

Closes 4pm, Tuesday 11 February 2020

  • Challenging and rewarding health sector role
  • Huge datasets with genuine opportunities to innovate
  • Access to the latest tools such as Power BI and Azure
  • Supportive and collaborative team environment.

TAS is looking for an Analyst or Senior Analyst with strong technical skills to work in our Insights & Analytics group – building great customer relationships, exploring the latest methodologies and providing excellent data analysis for colleagues across the health sector.

This role is within the Analytical Insights Consultancy and is likely to have an initial focus on two programmes: shaping regional clinical delivery (stroke, dementia, cancer and trauma) and understanding the lives of older New Zealanders through the interRAI dataset.

In any of the programmes we support, a typical week in this team might include:

  • presenting insights to specialists and health sector leaders
  • working with clinicians to agree and improve key indicators in national datasets
  • helping researchers access data about service quality and patient outcomes
  • exploring new ideas to solve a health service’s operational or financial challenge.

Analysts in this team are expected to apply a consultancy mindset – advising internal and external colleagues on high-quality and innovative solutions that deliver good value and to have the technical skills needed to design and deliver those solutions.

When our group steps back from the day-to-day, we also think about the future - increased automation, interactive visual reporting and applying systems thinking to the health system. We want to do more in these arenas and we’d love your help to explore and expand.

If you’d like to be considered, you’ll need to explain in your cover letter how you meet the knowledge and skills criteria listed below – we’ll be using this list for our selection so it’s important to address every bullet item. Your CV should provide additional context.

To be successful in the role, you must have:

  • Strong data analysis and problem-solving skills
  • Confidence working with data and creating reports, using tools like Power BI and Excel
  • Experience communicating technical information to a non-technical audience, including being able to summarise complex concepts in short and simple language
  • The ability to build good relationships with a range of stakeholders
  • The ability to break down complex information problems to identify underlying structures, relationships, and opportunities
  • The ability to work both autonomously and collaboratively, in a team environment.

Senior Analysts must also have:

  • A minimum of four years' experience undertaking the relevant analytical activity and being held accountable for the quality and impact of the work
  • The ability to train, coach and mentor other analysts
  • The ability to advise and influence colleagues, especially at the senior level.

 You must have the right to live and work in New Zealand.

More information about the role (including the specific data skills required)  is available in the attached job description. 

If this is you, please apply by sending us your CV and covering letter to TAS Recruitment.
