Whether it's next-generation diagnostics, life-changing devices, science-based nutrition, or novel reformulations, 109,000 of us are working together in advancing some of the most innovative and revolutionary technologies in healthcare, helping people live their best lives through better health.

As the INDUSTRY LEADER, Abbott Diabetes Care designs, develops and manufactures glucose monitoring systems for use in both home and hospital settings. We have a Centre of Excellence in Witney for the development and manufacture of electrodes and biosensors used by patients and healthcare professionals for the day-to-day management of diabetes. The site, and its Statistics team, has been instrumental in the research, development and manufacture of the FreeStyle Libre Flash Glucose Monitoring System and continues to work on a strong pipeline of products in development. We are passionate about doing work that improves the quality of people's lives.

We currently have a number of exciting opportunities for Senior Statisticians to join our R&D team. This role can be based at our Medical Devices Centre of Excellence in Witney, Oxfordshire, or from our Maidenhead offices. Roles available: Senior Statistician I, Senior Statistician II, Senior Statistician III, Principal Statistician.

We are keen to hear from candidates looking for an opportunity to MAKE AN IMPACT AT WORK and CONTRIBUTE TO PATIENT HEALTH for the next generation of glucose-monitoring technology.

Unlike traditional pharma or CRO work, with Abbott Diabetes Care, you would be involved in END-TO-END CLINICAL TRIALS for a small number of GLOBAL PROJECTS that typically last from 4 to 18 months. From supporting PROTOCOL DEVELOPMENT through to PREPARING PUBLICATIONS, you will see the impact of your work as we continue to support the growth of our FreeStyle Libre Flash Glucose testing system in new markets, or for new patient populations. In addition, you will be providing key statistical support alongside scientists and engineers to the DEVELOPMENT OF OUR PIPELINE PRODUCTS.

In this role, you would be joining a vibrant, friendly and diverse group, and through leading a small team, you can expect to work across a varied range of projects and statistical techniques. Our teams collaborate to form a network of Statistics professionals, and offer members the opportunity to share best practices, leverage insights and skill-sharing, and build personal career expertise and professional development. Further professional and/or academic accreditations/certifications can also be supported.

We will expect you to be able to successfully contribute to, or manage, a small number of projects, and work with colleagues from a range of backgrounds to explain statistical concepts to them. This means that in addition to your knowledge of statistical methods and data analysis for clinical research, you'll need to be adaptable, have a keen eye for detail, excellent written and verbal communication abilities, and strong collaboration and team-working skills. Alongside this, you will have an interest in, or demonstrated history of leading and growing teams, managing your direct reports and supporting their growth both technically and professionally. You will have a BSc (or higher) in Statistics or Mathematics and a strong working knowledge of SAS.

Abbott offers a highly competitive salary (£36,000 to £70,000 dependant on experience and the role level) and attractive benefits package which includes a defined-contribution pension scheme, a share ownership scheme, private healthcare, life assurance, and a flexible benefits scheme which you can tailor to your own requirements. Here at Abbott, we also like to help our employees live life to the fullest, and therefore we offer a range of optional initiatives for you to get involved in - at Witney you'll find onsite allotments, couch to 5k campaigns, bee keeping, yoga and more, and at Maidenhead, you'll find an onsite gym, virtual yoga, and more
