+ Statistician

 

Start date: September/October 2019
Location: Office-based, in Sheffield or Manchester

Are you interested in working in a cutting-edge industry, where you can develop globally valued skills and apply your maths and statistics knowledge to improving healthcare?
If so, BresMed is offering an exciting opportunity to join our Statistics team.

About BresMed:
Health economics is a rapidly developing and increasingly important field due to aging populations and the increasing burden of healthcare. The tools developed by health economists are widely used for evaluating the clinical and economic value of drugs and devices. This process requires economists, statisticians and clinical writers with a capacity for finding creative solutions to challenging problems. Solving such problems necessitates statistical expertise, as well as an in-depth understanding of the theoretical frameworks employed to assess value in a healthcare setting.
BresMed is one of the largest privately owned health economic and outcomes research (HEOR) consultancies in the world. The office dynamic is intellectually stimulating, fun and focused on results. With our head office in Sheffield we employ over 150 people in the UK, India, Ireland, the Netherlands and the US. Once settled, there are opportunities for international placements and secondments.
We aim to deliver high-quality and innovative research solutions, working closely with clients to develop economic models and analyses for early product development and submission to the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence, the Scottish Medicines Consortium and the National Centre for Pharmacoeconomics, as well as other European and national authorities. We have fostered strong links with academia in the UK and other European countries, and we pride ourselves on developing innovative and cutting-edge methodologies.
We identify ourselves as having a dynamic and vibrant culture, with many of our employees joining the organization as graduates. This has promoted a meritocratic environment where every employee has a voice and is encouraged to express their thoughts and opinions. We believe in developing our staff and exposing them to responsibility from an early stage in their careers, enabling rapid progression, while maintaining a close support network.
We are seeking a recently graduated statistician with the enthusiasm, vision and flexibility in approach required to grow into a key and influential role within the Statistics team.

Your responsibilities:
The core focus of your work will be using statistical solutions to investigate and demonstrate what would happen to patients on a new health technology (drug, device, diagnostic technique, etc.). This requires close teamwork both cross-functionally within BresMed and with our clients. The job requires attention to detail, an inquisitive mindset and a desire to learn both technically (statistically) and more broadly (e.g. understanding disease areas). We will support you with both internally and externally delivered training to enable you to grow into the role and further develop the key skill sets for this position.

Your responsibilities will include:

  • Developing statistical analysis plans
  • Performing and reporting statistical analysis as standalone research or for input into health economic models
  • Contributing statistical input into reimbursement submissions for health technology agencies

Common types of analyses/projects performed include:

  • Survival analyses (in particular, fitting curves to survival data that enable estimation of long-term survival beyond the trial data)
  • Indirect treatment comparisons (using evidence from clinical trials to form comparisons between treatments that have not been compared head-to-head within a clinical trial)
  • Analyses of clinical trial data (e.g. estimating patients’ quality of life in certain states of health)
  • Analyses of observational data/real-world evidence

 

Your skills:

We are looking for enthusiasm, vision, flexibility in approach and the desire to grow into a key and influential role within our Statistics team. You will ideally have:

  • A BSc/BA in statistics, mathematics or a closely related field. A postgraduate qualification (MSc, PhD) in a statistical/mathematical topic would be an advantage
  • Excellent oral and written communication skills with a view to liaising with technical and non-technical clients (both internally and externally)
  • Excellent numerical and critical thinking ability
  • The ability to resolve issues and challenges
  • The ability to work both independently and as part of a team
  • Computer literacy and the ability to confidently use Microsoft Office® packages
  • Understanding of the importance of managing projects within timelines, budget and scope
  • Programming skills in SAS® or R (valuable but not essential)

 

Compensation and benefits package:
As part of our graduate programme, you have the option (if required) of enrolling in, and being supported through, a part-time 2-year MSc to gain a formal qualification in medical statistics.
Starting package:

  • Course fees if the MSc is undertaken
  • Competitive salary (dependent on qualifications)
  • Bonus scheme
  • 33.5 days paid leave inclusive of bank holidays
  • Pension
  • Private healthcare and a range of wellbeing benefits

 

How to apply:
Applicants must be able to demonstrate legal eligibility to work in the UK. To apply please include the job reference NRUK0719-1 in the subject line of your email and send a CV and cover letter/email detailing your eligibility for the role to jobs@bresmed.com.
