Data Clerk - temporary maternity cover (Part Time) - August 2018

We are looking to cover one of our data clerks while she is on maternity leave.  The work of the data team is crucial in maintaining the systems and information which support delivery of safe, responsive and  effective clinical care to our 13,500 patients.   This role will be temporary to cover the maternity leave of the current post-holder.

The successful candidate is likely to have gained experience within a busy and demanding service background, and will be able to demonstrate a high standard of language and IT literacy, and an ability to learn new systems and adapt to developments within primary care and an ever-changing NHS.  A flexible approach and excellent interpersonal skills will be essential.

Primary care experience and knowledge of Emis Web would be an advantage but is not essential as full training would be provided.

Hours: The current post-holder works 19 hours per week on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays, and we would ideally seek to cover these hours.

Pay will be dependent on relevant skills and experience within the range of £7.83 to £8.30 per hour, and will include NHS Pension Scheme.
