Data and Technology Integrator (77931-117)

University of Warwick - Warwick Business School - Academic Services

Working 5 days over 7.

Warwick Business School (‘WBS’) is the UK’s top provider of finance and business research and education. In making this appointment the Dean of WBS is seeking a Technology Integrator who, among other duties, can play a central role in developing the School’s ability to exploit technology and data in support of its strategic aim to be a world leader in business education, research and engagement, helping to create a better global society. You will work closely with the School’s Management Information System (MIS) and my.wbs to ensure the currency and accuracy of the data as relating to the Academic Services and Doctoral Programmes Office operations, as well as ensuring that it is reconciled with other data sources held within the central university system.

This is an exciting opportunity for anyone wishing to progress their career within a dynamic and innovative organisation. In this newly-created full-time post you will be based primarily in the Academic Services section of the Dean’s Office (80%) and also work within the WBS Doctoral Programme (20%). In addition, you will work closely with developers and support staff in WBS eSolutions and act as a bridge between Academic Services/Doctoral Programmes Office and eSolutions to facilitate a proactive environment for technology development and support. You will work autonomously to produce accurate data sets – often large in size - before analysing and manipulating them, to help support the operations of the Office and to inform strategic decision making.

You will be expected to solve problems creatively and pragmatically, demonstrate excellent verbal and written communication skills, and possess the ability to listen, mediate and advocate in an organisation with a number of different stakeholders encompassing a range of technical experience. You will also ensure that any developments are sustainable and able to be utilised by colleagues from a variety of technical backgrounds as well as ensuring that effective documentation is in place to record developments made.

As well as being responsible for the application of technology solutions to management and administrative processes, you will be an experienced user services professional with a keen interest in HE management and administration, who has advanced support skills and wishes to develop them in a diverse and challenging environment. You will possess strong interpersonal and communication skills, and the ability to explain technology concepts to others in a friendly and approachable manner, raising awareness of the benefits of appropriate use of technology and extending technology utilisation skills.

In October 2014 WBS opened a London base at The Shard, one of London’s most iconic buildings. Part of your role will be to work closely with the Shard Team (who are also part of the Academic Services section of the Dean’s Office) on integration and improvement projects. You will be required to occasionally provide cover for the staff at The Shard on a planned basis and this will require occasional evening and weekend working. Appropriate travel, subsistence and accommodation expenses will be paid.

You must have an honours degree or equivalent qualification with a postgraduate qualification to Masters level being advantageous. Ideally you will have previous experience of working in a similar role in a higher education environment.

Informal enquiries can be sent to: Dan Pearson, Director of Academic Services (Dan.Pearson@wbs.ac.uk).

Interview date: 19 January 2018.
