Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is one of the largest NHS teaching trusts in the country. It provides a wide range of general and specialist clinical services and is a base for medical education, training and research.

The Trust comprises four hospitals - the John Radcliffe Hospital, Churchill Hospital and Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre in Headington and the Horton General Hospital in Banbury.

Our values, standards and behaviours define the quality of clinical care we offer and the professional relationships we make with our patients, colleagues and the wider community. We call this Delivering Compassionate Excellence and its focus is on our values of compassion, respect, learning, delivery, improvement and excellence. These values put patients at the heart of what we do and underpin the quality healthcare we would like for ourselves or a member of our family. Watch how we set out to deliver compassionate excellence via the OUH YouTube channel.


Many of our recruitment programmes use Value Based Interviewing to identify those who have the skills we seek, who share our values and who are able to deliver compassionate excellence from the outset. We know that this makes a significant difference to your job satisfaction and above all the outcomes and experience of our patients and their families.

We are seeking an experienced individual with talent, expertise, and ambition in programme management in the field of clinical informatics. This is an opportunity to work on exciting programmes that aim to transform both scientific research and healthcare delivery. We have a strong team and need to add capacity and expertise in senior-level programme management. The successful candidate will be based within the NIHR Oxford BRC, working out of the Oxford Big Data Institute, working closely with world-leading researchers in health data science.

The post holder will manage major clinical informatics programmes locally and nationally and will be responsible for leading the NIHR BRC CIG team and the NIHR HIC through a programme management function. They will coordinate activity, act as a central point of contact for the programmes and the projects that sit underneath them, and lead on the delivery and benefits realisation on behalf of the whole collaborative and the CIG. They will be expected to make management decisions in collaboration with key stakeholders and to contribute to the broader aspects of programme planning and delivery. They will report to the Director of R&D Clinical Informatics, Kerrie Woods.


The BRC Clinical Informatics Group (CIG) is working to develop and deliver state-of-the-art software and data infrastructure for clinical and translational research across the University-Hospital Partnership, across the region, and across a national network of collaborating research centres. The core team have considerable expertise in data design, model-driven development, and knowledge representation, and are able to draw upon additional, world-leading expertise in machine learning and cybersecurity.

The National Institute for Health Research Health Informatics Collaborative (NIHR HIC) was conceived in response to a grand challenge from England’s Chief Medical Officer: to show that data collected in the course of routine patient care across the 20 NIHR biomedical research centres can be re-used for collaborative, translational research. These centres have different systems for electronic patient records, and little or no data had ever been shared between them. The Programme is funded by the NIHR, operates under an approved programme initiation document and formal governance structure and will run until at least the end of the current BRC period.
