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 and social 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 16 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 would undertake health economic modelling and critical appraisal of health economic literature.

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 60 staff, delivering a large work programme (currently we are working on 16 NICE guidelines and on other projects). 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.

The non-senior post is suitable for students completing their MSc in September/October 2017 as well as MSc graduates. Candidates that are successful after the interview stage will be asked to complete a conflict of interest form to further assess their suitability.
