The University of Nottingham are looking to appoint a Data and Evaluation Manager to join their Widening Participation team. You will use your data management and analysis skills to ensure we are supporting students from all backgrounds to access higher education.  In the Widening Participation team, we work with groups that are under-represented in higher education in order to raise aspirations and remove pre-conceived barriers to continuous learning.

This includes making a significant contribution to the analysis of student and programme data to report on our widening participation targets. You will have a background in statistical analysis or data management, alongside experience of reporting and data quality assurance.  As our Data and Evaluation manager, you will provide university-wide specialist advice as well as support to our team in evaluating, evidencing, and articulating the impact of our activities. You will be a data specialist who is able to design, support and deliver high quality fit for purpose evaluation work. 

You will act as the lead for data protection and GDPR compliance within Widening Participation and will need to have a working knowledge of current legislation and be proactive in keeping abreast of relevant updates and changes, making recommendations to improve our systems and processes accordingly.  

At the University of Nottingham, we aim to give you all the support you need to nurture your talent, and to develop and reach your professional and personal career goals.
