Do you have strong analytical skills and a questioning nature? Do you want to directly support the University in the achievement of our strategic objectives? Are you keen to make a positive contribution to defining the future strategic direction and improving the efficiency and effectiveness of the University?

The University has an ambitious Strategic Plan investing in knowledge and opportunity to grow the level of high quality academic activity, which will require the support of flexible, responsive, effective and efficient professional support services.

You will identify, source and analyse benchmark data to create insights that support the delivery of the Strategic Plan. This data will include internal and external data on revenues, costs and other measures relating to students, staff, and research and other activity. You will also analyse other data sources to develop an understanding of cost reduction and revenue growth opportunities, and present insights in a visually engaging manner.

You will have demonstrable experience of data analysis and complex reasoning, with an ability to work well under pressure, and be ready to learn the systems and software used to analyse and interpret data at the University, with the ultimate aim of establishing an ethic of continuous improvement.

This is an exciting opportunity for a highly organised, self-motivated, proactive individual who can manage relationships with a wide range of stakeholders. You will be able to understand and interpret complex information from multiple sources and work with senior colleagues of all disciplines in a collaborative and proactive manner. You will play an active part in making strategic decisions backed up by insights from data.
