Senior Consultant (Director)
Health and Disability Analytics

Full time or part time opportunity, Sydney

About us

We help business and government leaders see a clear way forward.

Taylor Fry’s actuarial and analytics consultants support our clients in making strategic decisions to enhance the financial health of their organisations, and benefit communities, people and society.

We are creative problem solvers – from physicists and engineers to mathematicians and computer scientists. This variety strengthens our advice to meet the needs of our clients and their customers.

Our innovations have led to changes in government policy in Australia and New Zealand, and continue to break new ground, particularly in the social sector. Qantas liked our approaches in analytics so much, it bought a 51 per cent stake in our business in 2015.

About the opportunity

Our Health and Disability practice area is expanding, and we’re seeking an experienced senior consultant with strong analytics capabilities and a background in the health sector who can support further business development as we continue to grow. The position can be either full time or part time (and we’re open to a range of part-time arrangements starting from three days per week).

This role offers a nice mix of strategy, client engagement and hands-on project management. As a senior member of the Health and Disability team, you’ll work with our other senior consultants to identify new opportunities in the local market, and provide end-to-end support with project management – from planning, scoping and directing projects, right through to determining pricing, resourcing, and delivering outputs.

The work we do in the health sector makes a difference. The team work across the public and private sectors, helping our clients to make data-driven decisions that seek to improve their systems and services, and ultimately make a positive impact for communities. Our clients are focused on balancing the need for financial health, meeting community expectations and achieving better outcomes for people. Ideally, you’ll share this desire for improvement, and bring empathy and understanding to how you engage with clients and their stakeholders.

About you

You’ll need to have at least eight years’ experience in an analytics-focused role within the public or private health sector. Experience working in a consulting environment with direct exposure to clients will be an advantage, although candidates who have been working internally in the health sector with good industry knowledge and connections will also be considered.

To be successful in this role, you need the following skills and attributes:

  • Creative and innovative thinking, with confidence in your ability to identify opportunities and sell services and new ideas to clients.
  • Ability to focus on the client and take the time to form deep client relationships, listen to client needs and provide advice and solutions that meet their objectives.
  • Experience using statistical/machine learning scripting languages such as SAS, R, Python and other relevant languages.
  • Deep understanding of predictive modelling, statistics and/or machine learning.
  • Experience leading projects or streams of work on large projects, some experience with leading people, and an enthusiasm for supervising and training junior team members.
  • Strong organisational skills, with the ability to assimilate information quickly and handle multiple priorities under pressure or within tight timescales.
  • A passion for making a difference using data.
