Informing better care
We enable better outcomes for the people who use England's health and social care services. By collecting, analysing and publishing data, we support the provision of safer and more efficient care, informing decision-making and choice. And with over 2,000 people and £1bn of projects and services in our remit, we're playing a vital role in the development of new technologies that will transform healthcare over the next decade.
We are an Executive Non-Departmental Public Body. To find out more about us, visit our About us pages.

Working with us
We're proud of our team-focused, supportive culture. At HSCIC, our people are encouraged to develop, and we provide challenging work that's focused on getting the best out of you and growing your skills.
We achieve great results in a supportive environment. Together, we have a passion for driving improvements to health and care outcomes in England through information and technology- and we do this by working with a common set of values in mind. In everything we do, we strive to be:
We live these values through our work. Our people come from a variety of backgrounds - including the NHS, Civil Service and the private sector. We welcome and encourage this diversity for fresh ideas, organisational improvement and first-rate customer service.
Making working life easier
Whilst our head office is in the centre of Leeds, we also have a significant presence in London, Exeter, Redditch, Southport and Newcastle - plus a number of smaller office locations around the country. Some of our roles are predominately desk-based, whilst others involve travel to client sites, including suppliers and organisations within the health and social care sector.
We want talented people from all walks of life to join our organisation to maintain and develop our reputation as the trusted provider national of information, data and systems for health and social care. And to encourage that, we offer a range of flexible benefits for our people. As well as providing challenging and engaging roles in a supportive and diverse environment and real opportunities for progression, we offer:
- Flexible working (for employees who have worked with us for over 26 weeks)
- Part-time working
- Job sharing
- Annualised hours that fit around your needs (i.e. working solely during school term time).
- Excellent remote IT support to allow for flexible working
- Winding down - we offer those who are approaching retirement the chance to gradually reduce their hours.
What's more, employees with a year or more service have the opportunity to apply for an unpaid career break between three months and five years. As well as this, we offer a range of family-friendly policies to support our people, including enhanced maternity and adoption leave policies.
Our people are employed on NHS terms and conditions. As such, we offer benefits in-line with their terms, including:
- Competitive pay
- A generous holiday package that increases with service
- A contributory pension, with 14 per cent contribution from us
- Excellent career, training and development
- Childcare vouchers
- Enhanced Maternity and Adoption leave
- Paternity, parental and dependent care leave
- Sight tests
- National and local discount schemes (including insurance, travel, retailers, utilities etc.)
- Access to our Employee Assistance Programme, an online information resource and telephone service providing confidential information across a range of counselling services.
Our people are our most valuable asset, and we make sure that during your time with us we support your development and give you the room you need to grow and enjoy your work. We fulfil that commitment from day one, with a full induction programme to ensure you settle into your role; a personal development plan to give structure to your ambitions; and learning and development opportunities that are based on your career goals.
From there, we conduct twice-yearly personal development reviews to check in with how you're growing, and encourage you to take on training, further education, job shadowing and mentoring.
Each of the six professional groups at the HSCIC is developing career ladders and competency frameworks to ensure that you have the appropriate professional development. This means that you can go further in our organisation and that we can continue to operate in-line with best practice.
Equality and Diversity
The variety of people who we work with is a huge strength to our organisation. And we encourage people of different backgrounds, experiences and perspectives to offer their unique take on things. To facilitate that, we foster an environment that's respectful and inclusive.
Our Equality and Diversity policy helps us to realise our commitment to that culture. It relates to all aspects of employment, including individual standards of behaviour, job advertising, recruitment and selection, training, performance, pay, promotion, terms and conditions, the provision of benefits and leaving processes.
We support the "Two Ticks - Positive About Disabled People" scheme. As such, we welcome applications from disabled candidates.
