Faculty / Directorate
Recent major investments in IT include a £13m programme to refresh our IT infrastructure; and the current multi-million pound Core Systems Modernisation programme, delivering transformative change underpinned by the implementation of SAP Finance, HR/Payroll, Student Lifecycle management and CRM. With these foundations in place the next stage is to deliver a digital revolution, leveraging opportunities provided by technologies such as cloud based services, data analytics, the Internet of Things and Office 365. Achievement of our ambitious strategy is dependent on hiring talented technical experts, people like you.

You will be responsible for ensuring application requirements are converted through design, planning and governance for implementation. You will develop an understanding of the high level target architecture and the application needs, and seek to find the compromise that delivers the most business value and the least risk. You will also use risk assessment as a means to highlight gaps and technical debt.
