CONSULTANT

The SSU provides professional consultancy and training across a broad range
of application areas of statistics, as well as services to researchers
within the University and Sheffield Central Hospitals. With clients ranging
in size from small private companies to large multi-nationals and public
utilities, the SSU offers its consultants a challenging opportunity to gain
a rare breadth of experience in the practical application of statistics. In
particular, it has extensive involvement in: analysis and reporting of
clinical trials in the pharmaceutical industry; auditing of performance
measurements in the rail industry; providing consultancy to the health
service; the design, analysis and reporting of surveys; and the delivery of
statistics workshops.

We are currently looking to expand our services and therefore require an
additional consultant. Applicants should possess a good honours degree,
including a substantial element of statistics, or a postgraduate
qualification in statistics. Work experience in the areas outlined above
would be especially welcome, although not essential. In addition, you should
have the following personal qualities: an enthusiastic approach to the
practical application of statistics; good communication skills; commercial
awareness; an ability to work to deadlines; and an attention to detail.

Salary in the range: £16,286 to £20,811 pa.
