Data Architect

Are you a highly skilled, delivery-focused Data Architect with experience of shaping data strategies to meet the business needs for large organisations? Are you interested in supporting the delivery of the University’s transformational change programme?

The University of Leeds is currently progressing two transformational change programmes: the Student Lifecycle Programme and the Corporate Processes and Systems Programme.  Both are multi million pound, 3-5 year programmes involving processes, systems and ways of working changes.

The Student Lifecycle Programme (SLP) is in the first year of an exciting 4 year programme to enhance the processes, systems and ways of working that support students on their lifecycle from initial enquiry through to joining the university, and ultimately graduating from the University.  The programme will deliver an integrated record of student and curriculum information, improvements in efficiency, resilient and flexible administrative systems, and an enhanced student and staff experience.  The programme is wanting to build its data team; a data lead/senior data analyst, data architect and analysts.  This team will work within an existing team of 40+, including programme and project managers, business and process analysts, IT technical experts and subject matter experts in student education related areas. 

The Corporate Processes and Systems Programme (CP&S) is an anticipated 5 year programme which includes process and systems change across Finance, Human Resources, Procurement and Strategy and Planning. The  vision to create a University enabled by streamlined and consistent processes and robust and insightful data, with clear ownership and control, supported by modern and future-proofed technology that is understood and enjoyed by its users.  Our ambition is to reduce the time that academic and professional services staff spend on transactional activity and the manual preparation of plans, forecasts and reporting, which will allow a stronger focus on academic and service delivery, business partnering and other value-adding activity. 

We are looking for a Data Architect to support each of the programmes to deliver systems that support effective and efficient business processes and align with University Strategy. You will be a subject matter expert in this field and play a key role in developing and delivering business strategy. You will ensure that programme data architectures align with the overall University Data Strategy.
