Working within the Planning and Performance team, you will, design and undertake targeted data analysis, of internal and external datasets, to support critical business decisions and strategy development at BCU. Your work will help us drive transformative change. 

Drawing on your existing data analysis and reporting skills, and rapidly learning new skills sets, products and the business requirements of HE, you will: 

  • Report and analyse key data sets, both internal and external, on student numbers, demographics, surveys etc. 
  • Analyse, predict and plan to improve League Table performance.

Requirements for the post include (among other things) a good technical data skillset, experience of business intelligence tools, experience of working collegiately across departments and great organisational and communication skills. Ideally you will have some experience of working in Higher Education – but it’s not essential – more important is an inquiring mind and investigative mindset.
