The United Kingdom Health Security Agency (UKHSA) is an executive agency of the Department of Health and Social Care. UKHSA is a system leader for health security; taking action internationally to strengthen global health security, providing trusted advice to government and the public and reducing inequalities in the way different communities experience and are impacted by infectious disease, environmental hazards, and other threats to health. UKHSA’s remit, as an agency with a global-to-local reach, is to protect the health of the nation from infectious diseases and other external threats to health.

The mission of the HCAI, Fungal, AMR, AMU & Sepsis Division within UKSHA is to protect people from healthcare-associated and antimicrobial resistant infections through world-leading public health microbiology, outbreak response, surveillance, research, and interventions. This role is based within a multi-disciplinary team of scientists, medical and nursing staff, programmers and administrative personnel. The team are responsible for a range of national surveillance programmes that collect epidemiological data on healthcare associated infections (HCAI) and invasive bacterial infections, monitoring resistance to and usage of antimicrobials, provide specialist epidemiology, coordinate the investigation and causes of national outbreaks, and give advice to government.

The primary function of this post will be to lead and contribute to enhanced surveillance systems and research studies within the Division. Postholders will require project management skills to deliver outputs on time and to agreed standards. Postholders will lead on behalf of the Division on developing and designing datasets, managing the collation and validation of data, and the timely production of outputs (e.g. reports and articles). Postholders will be expected to lead on analyses of datasets, to provide advice and guidance on specialist aspects of the analyses, to interpret and prepare scientific reports and articles of the results and to undertake further research. Postholders will contribute to the teaching activities of the Division.

In general, postholders will be expected to cope with multiple and changing demands, and to meet tight deadlines. Postholders will be expected to have a high level of intellectual rigour and to advise and make recommendations regarding the development of strategy and implementation of surveillance systems. A high level of tact and diplomacy is required and an ability to understand other cultures to enable effective working across organisational boundaries and influencing without authority.
