Head of Business Intelligence and Data Analytics

Do you want to lead our approach to business intelligence and data analytics? Are you able to consult with and build consensus across a wide range of senior stakeholders to deliver the transformational change in an institutional level leadership role? 

With a focus on enhancing institutional strategic visibility and agility, facilitating competitive positioning, and the successful and timely delivery of the University’s strategic plan, you will lead the transformation of the current Strategy & Planning (S&P) management information (MI) service into a strategically-aligned and dynamic business intelligence and data analytics (BIDA) service. In partnership with domain experts across the University, and drawing on your expertise of higher education (HE) datasets and analytical tools, you will also lead the development of a cross-institutional integrated and coherent approach to data analytics and reporting. In partnership with business data owners and IT colleagues you will play a lead role in securing the supply of high quality business data for both strategic and statutory data analytics and reporting purposes, ensuring business intelligence and data analytics requirements are embedded in major institutional change initiatives.

The University has an ambitious strategic plan which, enabled by a £520m strategic investment portfolio, seeks to achieve a significant step change across its academic business, physical infrastructure and professional support services. Set within the context of an increasingly competitive and dynamic external environment, to achieve these ambitions the University is seeking to enhance institutional business intelligence and data analytics capability through this appointment. This is an exciting and challenging opportunity for an individual with the vision, energy and commitment to deliver strategic change and deliver institutional impact.

With line management responsibility for the Business Intelligence & Data Analytics Manager, and the support of a team of MI analysts (see Annex I), you will have complete leadership and management responsibility for the brief, balancing a proactive, collegiate and solutions-focused approach, managing, mitigating and escalating issues and risks to the Director of Strategy & Planning as appropriate.
