We are undertaking an exciting and substantial programme of system and business process redesign to significantly enhance our stakeholder engagement and experience of academic timetabling.  To support this project, we are now seeking to employ a new, enthusiastic, experienced and  talented individual to join our current timetable team to support these new and emerging developments.

With a good academic background, you will have previous demonstrable experience of delivering academic timetables, working in collaboration with academic and professional support partners.

Customer-orientated, pragmatic and solutions-focused, you will be committed to delivering an effective and efficient academic timetable experience, driven by both system development and business processing activities.  You will be actively involved with our academic and student stakeholders, helping to support system and process rollouts, whilst also working to find innovative solutions which support continuous improvement, removing existing barriers and positively challenging accepted norms.

You will also be confident defining and working accurately with large sets of complex data, feel comfortable providing technical support and advice to academic colleagues and be able to support the creation and redevelopment of written guidance and procedural documentation.

The post requires a high level of attention to detail with strong organisational, liaison and communication skills.  

You will be working within a small but dedicated and supportive team, at various stages of their own timetabling development.  We value honesty, integrity, good doses of realism alongside a sense of fun and adventure.
