Make a difference; work with us in healthcare research focussed on improving care quality in the NHS

This is an exciting opportunity to join a multi-professional team of experienced and enthusiastic specialists working at a national level. Our work programme delivers high quality guidance that is aimed at improving NHS patient care. The National Guideline Centre (NGC) is a forward-thinking research centre producing evidence-based clinical practice guidelines for the NHS in England. Funded by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), and building on 15 years of success in developing clinical guidelines, the NGC brings together expertise from the Royal Colleges of General Practitioners, Nursing, Physicians and Surgeons in an innovative partnership.

NICE Guidelines form the basis of the NHS’s quality standards and have an international reputation for excellence. This is an opportunity to make a leading contribution to health economic evaluation in support of NICE guidelines. If appointed you will join a team of 11 health economists undertaking health economic modelling and critical appraisal of health economic literature. You would work with the head of health economics and another health economics lead assuring the integrity of the NGC health economics work and line managing members of the team. You would also be involved in leading methodological and policy development.

On each project you will work with a guideline committee, comprised of leading healthcare professionals and patient members, to produce recommendations for the NHS. The NGC is a team of about around 60 staff, delivering a large work programme (currently we are working on 16 clinical guidelines). This is a great opportunity to work within an effective team environment with information specialists, health economists, systematic reviewers and project managers.

Strong interpersonal, presentation and organisational skills are required, with a commitment to maintaining high standards in working to fixed timelines. The roles provide opportunities for continuing professional and personal development in a highly supportive and collaborative environment.

This is a permanent role. Part-time and full-time applications will be considered.

For an informal discussion about this role, contact Kate Lovibond, health economics lead (020 3075-1374; or David Wonderling, head of health economics (020 3075-1388;
