  • Analysing and interpreting qualitative and quantitative data, making use of available databases including HEAT (the Higher Education Access Tracker)
  • Managing the data administrator, and providing training and support for colleagues across the Study Higher network.

You should have:

  • A strong understanding of widening participation
  • Experience of carrying out research and of analysing and reporting on quantitative and qualitative data
  • Good communication skills, including the ability to explain complex concepts to non-specialist audiences
  • Data analysis skills, ideally backed up by a research methods or statistics qualification.

Interviews will be held on Wednesday 11th January.
