Let us tell you a little bit about the role....

Our teams in the Technology, Data and Insight unit have recently been reorganised so that they can best contribute and enable what CQC does. Some teams focus on acquiring the data we need, other teams use the data in developing products that colleagues can use to fulfil their needs and other team work more closely with inspection colleagues or looking at data on a larger scale to find local or national risks or trends. All of our teams though work collaboratively on projects that bring team members together.
