All successful applicants will be required to complete the Trust’s induction programme. The Fundamental (Statutory and Mandatory) training will be in an e-learning format.

Birmingham and Solihull Mental Health Foundation Trust (BSMHFT) is rated as one of the top places to work in the NHS and is one of the largest mental health foundation trusts in the country, operating out of over 40 sites, with a budget of over £240 million, and more than 4,000 staff. Our mission is straightforward - to improve mental health wellbeing and to create a service that we are all happy to recommend to others.

We are looking for two proactive and enthusiastic Senior Information Analysts to become permanent members of our team and support a range of different analytical, reporting, service and information development projects over time. Potential projects in the first 12 months include:

  • Supporting ‘Raid Plus’, the Birmingham and Solihull national Test Bed programme, working to reduce mental health crises and improve the coordination of crisis care through development of a range of innovative tools and approaches, including use of predictive analytics and live dashboard technology
  • Developing a new range of interactive reports for clinical teams and managers using SSRS and BI reporting tools
  • Developing data collection and reporting arrangements for our new perinatal mental health services

Over time the post-holders will play a leading analytical role in a series of different projects, working effectively with a wide range of colleagues and using a wide range of analytical, project and information management skills. This will involve a mixture of complex analytical work, advanced automated reporting, project and problem-solving activities, designing and supporting the set up of information systems and processes, and line management responsibilities at times where there are several analytical staff working on one project work stream, always with a focus on delivering excellent, practical solutions that make a real difference to how we deliver and support our services.

The successful candidates will be educated to degree level or have equivalent experience, including previous senior analytical experience, in-depth knowledge and experience of data modelling and forecasting, analysis and presentation tools and techniques, sound T-SQL skills, and the ability and enthusiasm to communicate effectively with a wide range of stake-holders up to senior level.
