New Vacancy: Senior Statistician

About us

At ICNARC, we believe passionately in working together to improve care and outcomes for intensive care patients.

Over the past 20+ years, we have established ourselves as an independent charity with close academic and healthcare links. We have developed strong working relationships with staff at all levels across NHS organisations, allowing us to work in over 200 intensive and critical care units in the NHS and collaborate on a large number of audits and research studies.

Our national clinical audit database now contains information on over 2 million patients. Alongside this, our registered clinical trials unit conducts a broad portfolio of national and international research studies. This wealth of high-quality, clinical data helps guide and influence intensive care practice at every level – from unit-based policy to Government decisions.  Patient and public involvement and engagement is central to our philosophy, and we involve these groups in all aspects of our work from design to dissemination.

We are looking to recruit exceptional individuals who share our passion for making a real difference. You will be joining our growing team, currently 38 staff, at an exciting time as we begin to shape our future vision for ICNARC for the next ten years.
