Human Tissue Authority

The regulator for human tissue and organs

Data Intelligence Development Lead

This role holder will focus on the development of our capacity and capability in becoming a data driven regulator. This capacity and capability whilst initially focused on regulation will extend across all aspects of HTA activities, its systems, processes and people. This role is not simply data aggregation. The primary responsibility of this role will be in leading the vision for data development and the creation of an analytical function and capability in line with the HTA’s strategy for 2021 and beyond and the emerging business requirements.

This will involve the end to end development of data from how the HTA can use data, understanding what it needs to collect, what it tells us and the action that will follow. Visual presentation of the analysis will be a core output. A key output of this work will be a strengthened understanding of data and its contribution to the regulatory model to facilitate routine oversight, risk profiling supporting the targeted deployment of resources and consideration of a wider data set in collaboration with other regulators and arms length bodies.

The role will work very closely with the Director of Data, Technology and Development, Change Manager as well as other roles involved in leading change as part of the development programme and developing the readiness of the function (capacity & capability) from 1 April 2021. It will be critical for this post holder to build productive relationships with the Regulatory Delivery Directorate and across the organisation. These relationships will be key to understanding core business requirements and delivery at pace.
