The University is rolling out a new approach to academic workload planning and allocation. An exciting opportunity exists to help shape the University's approach and make sure it is successfully implemented, maintained, and embedded.
This role will be responsible for being the internal system-owner for the workload allocation system/platform which is provided by external provider Simitive. The successful candidate will be expected to develop in-depth understanding of the allocation framework underpinning the system, the calculations that drive it and the data imports and associated import schedule that feed into it. There will also be an expectation to deliver management information reports for a range of internal stakeholders and opportunities will be available to further develop skills in this area.
The role will involve frequent engagement with faculties and academic colleagues, and this will include providing training and support to workload allocators (e.g. line managers) and those seeking assistance with understanding their allocations.
This new post will work closely with the Academic Workload Planning Manager in supporting the roll out of both the new system and accompany processes and will report into the Student Number and Academic Workload Planning Manager.
Working within the wider Planning and Statistics directorate, there will be opportunities for the right candidate to develop their analytical and reporting skills through the provision of management information to inform organisational decision-making.
