The Student Data and Management Information team are embarking on an ambitious programme of change across the University to ensure that data is accurate, timely and accessible, and works to benefit the University.  The Student Data & Management Information Manager will work on a number of statutory data returns, including those to the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) and the Student Loans Company (SLC), and will support the University’s compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).  Each of these activities involves close collaboration with teams across the University to ensure that those processes supporting the collection of data are robust, accurate and timely.  A detailed understanding of these processes provides a valuable foundation to those seeking career progression within the sector.

You will initially be involved with supporting the implementation of Degree Apprenticeship programmes at the University, and leading on the submission of Individual Learner Record returns (ILR) to the Education and Skills Funding Agency.  This is a new activity for the team and you will be play a lead role in delivering system and process changes to support this initiative.  You will also support the implementation of the HESA initiative to replace the current annual data return with the new Data Futures framework.

If you are a highly motivated and enthusiastic individual, seeking to gain experience of data management and reporting we would be interested in hearing from you.  You must have strong analytical and technical problem-solving skills, with process mapping, documentation and report writing abilities. You must also have strong interpersonal skills, be able to work independently or as part of a team, and be willing and able to learn new systems and processes quickly.

This is an exciting time for the team and for you to play a key role in a cross functional team, supporting the implementation of a number of key University projects, and contributing to the ongoing enhancement of the Student experience at the University.
