Business Intelligence and Reports Developer
Location: Central Office, Peterborough
Salary: £38,000 - £42,000
Closing Date: Wednesday 20 February 2019
Central Office staff work closely with schools, offering a wealth of expertise to underpin schools’ own knowledge. Our specialist departments, including HR, finance, technology, strategy and performance, estates, and marketing, work alongside dedicated school improvement teams. By joining us, you will provide ongoing support to schools, ultimately improving the outcomes of our pupils.
This is a new role, created to help achieve our vision for the use of powerful data and information to support school improvement. The role is based in our Peterborough central office, working in the Technology department but servicing the reporting and data aggregation needs of the whole organisation. The scope for the individual in this role to make a significant difference to our effectiveness, and hence to the lives of the children in our schools, is huge.
As the Business Intelligence and Reports developer, you will work with a high degree of autonomy to support the Technology department and Data team to realise the full benefits of our Data Warehouse and Analytics strategy, which has to date relied on external expertise. You will be joining the organisation as we transition one of our major systems (HR & Payroll) to a new provider, and your knowledge and experience will be important in establishing the reports this project requires.
The overwhelming majority of your work will be based in our Peterborough office in Thorpe Wood. You may occasionally need to visit the United Learning London office and our schools based all over England, depending on the nature of the projects you are working on. You will develop a broad understanding of the function of a large, national Multi Academy Trust and an in-depth knowledge of our almost 70 United Learning schools.
Your background is likely in data, computer science or a mathematical discipline. Your strong work ethic, curiosity and willingness to challenge yourself has got you where you are today. And now you’re ready to take the next step and be responsible for the success or failure of something that will make a difference, and something you can put your mark on.
You may have worked with formal reporting tools (like Business Objects or Crystal Reports) and you will certainly be confident in SQL and TSQL environments. You are interested in the potential for Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning to make new things possible. You are clear on what you don’t yet know and want to work for an employer that recruits for attitude and will invest in the development you need.
If you have a passion for improving young people’s lives, achieving the best in everyone and are keen to develop your own skills and knowledge, we would like to hear from you.
United Learning is supportive of flexible working practices and we will consider applicants’ requests for part-time or other flexibility arrangements. The role will benefit from our flexi-time policy.
United Learning is a large, and growing, group of schools aiming to offer a life changing education to children and young people across England.
Our schools work as a team and achieve more by sharing than any single school could. Our subject specialists, our Group-wide intranet, our own curriculum and our online learning portal all help us share knowledge and resource, helping to simplify work processes and manage workloads for an improved work-life balance.
As a Group, we can reward our staff better: with good career opportunities, benefits, and ultimately, the satisfaction of helping children to succeed. We invest in our staff wellbeing. It's an ethos we call ‘the best in everyone’.
United Learning is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
All positions are subject to an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring check from the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).
