The University is currently engaged in a major project to replace its combined HR and Payroll system. The advertised role will contribute to the project - and to the day-to-day activities of the small HR Operational Support team - by bolstering Business Intelligence report-writing capacity.
The successful candidate will be a solutions-focussed and methodical problem-solver, who will need to demonstrate significant experience of working with data and systems, ideally within a higher or further education context. Comprehensive, up-to-date skills in using at least one widely recognised Business Intelligence report-writing tool is essential. Specifically, expertise in authoring Business Objects is expected, although robust evidence of skills in using closely similar tools will be considered.
You will need to be able to demonstrate a track-record in the production, from scratch, of high-quality, accurate management information, housekeeping reports, KPI visuals, dashboards, etc. Consequently, you will need to convince the selection panel of your ability to listen to and interpret specifications given by business users; to resolve ambiguities; to translate requirements into technical specifications; and to design and implement solutions that convey information richly and succinctly, in a way that is easily digestible by the intended audiences. The required outputs will, reasonably often, need to be delivered within tight timescales, so the ability to prioritise effectively will be imperative.
It is also essential that you are highly proficient in using the full range of functionality within Excel and, preferably, have skills and experience in creating solutions using VBA. An excellent appreciation and understanding of the workings of databases and their administration is a must.
The HR Operational Support team plays a key part in maintaining and developing all of: the core HR system; the T4 web Content Management System; SharePoint; Qualtrics (surveys); the Cycle to Work scheme application process; and key compliance systems and processes, in respect of the Home Office (right to work in the UK); Freedom of Information requests; Subject Access Requests and GDPR. Consequently, the post-holder will additionally be involved in maintaining and supporting these systems, as required.
The successful candidate will assist (and sometimes represent) the HR Systems Manager as necessary; this may involve hosting meetings and representing HR at working groups, etc.
As a member of the HR Directorate, you will also assist the wider team with business as usual, as required, which will involve dealing with enquiries and assisting with routine or complex tasks. The role will involve a baseline expectation of three days on-campus, with the option of two days’ remote working.
Interviews are expected to take place on 6 February 2023.
