As UAL responds to a changing world, we have recently launched an ambitious new 10-year strategy. The University Central Planning Unit will play an important role in defining how we reach our strategy goals and monitoring our progress on this journey.
As a result, we are investing in our planning team and expanding our capacity to help us shape the provision UAL offers, whilst ensuring we are informing and monitoring outcomes. This provision of advice, insights and analysis will allow senior decision-makers to plan for growth and ensure we are offering a first-class experience to all our students.
The Planning Officer (External Data and Returns) will have responsibility for the analysis of external data and statutory returns that fall under the remit of the University Central Planning Unit including returns to HESA and funding bodies. You will assure the data contained in external returns, reconciling and analysing data to support the wider objectives of the University and modelling the impact of data in the returns on external performance measures.
You will be expected to contribute to the overall work of the department, and this will include undertaking data analyses, supporting the use of our planning tools and contributing to University-wide projects as appropriate.
