University of Bristol - IT Services

Work Hours 35.0 Hours per Week

The University of Bristol Systems Development Group is recruiting a Systems Developer to develop and deliver data migration solutions as part of a broad programme to review and renew key University student-related information systems.

As well as the implementation of solutions to migrate data from legacy systems, the successful candidates' responsibilities will include working alongside other colleagues on the analysis and decommissioning of these already-existing systems. The focus of the role may also change in line with the programme's requirements and the successful candidates will be expected to contribute to all aspects of the team’s work.

You must have experience of working within large and complex IT project environments and experience of enterprise scale data migration activities, including the phased migration of data from legacy to new systems.

You must have extensive database and Structured Query Language (SQL) skills and significant experience writing and tuning complex queries.

You will have a professional qualification or degree in computing, or have considerable vocational experience which demonstrates equivalent professional development. In addition you will have substantial experience both of analysing user requirements and designing data migration solutions that meet those requirements whilst also adhering to relevant IT standards.

You must be able to work well both as a member of a team and under your own initiative. The ability to communicate fluently and to present complex technical information to both technical and non-technical audiences is essential.

Individuals are required to be available as soon as possible, and no less than three months from offer.

The closing date for applications is 11:59pm, 20th October 2016
