  • £37,421 – £39,203
  • Any of our CHAS offices (Edinburgh, Glasgow Stepps, Balloch, Kinross, Inverness, or Aberdeen)
  • Closing 22nd April 2019

  • Advertised from 21st March 2019
  • 35 hours per week


Children’s Hospices Across Scotland, better known as CHAS, cares for children with life-shortening conditions and their families. We operate through our two hospices, our network of staff in hospitals, and our home care service in every part of Scotland. We know that better data will help us plan and deliver our services even better.

Three children die every week in Scotland from an incurable condition. Our doctors, nurses and social workers support as many of those families as we can. We aim to reach every family in Scotland and have an amazing opportunity for you to join our team.

As our primary Information and Data Analyst, you will:

  • analyse a wide range of information and data to help us plan services
  • review, analyse and continually improve how we understand and report on our performance
  • use a wide range of data sources and analytical tools to provide insight that supports better decision-making.

This is an excellent chance to use and grow your skills and experience in:

  • analysing and using information in delivering health and social care
  • developing systems to understand and report on organisational performance
  • presenting data to colleagues in ways that help colleagues decisions which have a profound effect on people.

Good at working with people, numbers and ideas, you will have experience in helping organisations use data and information better.

If you are strongly motivated to make an impact for children and families, please read the job description.

You can contact Rami Okasha, Director of Transformation and Innovation, for an informal chat on 0131 444 3294. We look forward to hearing from you.

CHAS offers an excellent package which includes access to the NHS or local government pension scheme, and comprehensive work/life balance policies.

We are very happy for you to be based in any of our CHAS offices (Edinburgh, Glasgow Stepps, Balloch, Kinross, Inverness, or Aberdeen), although many of the colleagues you work most directly with will be based in Edinburgh.

This is a permanent role, but we would consider a secondment for the right candidate.
