Our teams bring people from diverse backgrounds together, using their skills and cutting-edge technology, to help solve complex problems. We are pioneers in a world of changing risk and our market leading services build resilient organisations. Join us and together, we can support our clients to rethink risk.
PwC's Risk Modelling practice provides a range of analytical and modelling solutions to a range of clients across both the private and public sector. Within the practice, the Commercial & Government (C&G) team is a key focus area for growth and within that our health analytics team is one of the key areas for targeted investment to capitalise on the increased demand and opportunities for analytics and modelling services across the NHS.

As a member of PwC's risk modelling health analytics team, you will work with a range of healthcare / NHS clients to develop proof of concept and fully operational diagnostic, predictive and prescriptive analyses and models to aid the formulation and delivery of financial strategy and operational decisions. You will often be working directly with senior client management, participating in meetings with senior client staff and colleagues to add value to our clients through identifying and delivering benefits which are sustainable.

Based in the C&G team in our risk modelling practice, you will work alongside a diverse team from a range of analytical backgrounds including actuaries, data scientists and financial modellers.

Our models tend to focus on forecasting financial and operational outcomes, understanding risk and uncertainty in those forecasts and deriving insight from that analysis to support critical business decisions.
