    About us

    UCAS is the UK's centralised higher education admissions service. We track choices and decisions across millions of applications for higher education – half of all young people pass through our systems. We have around 500 staff, including around 40 analysis and research specialists, and are based in Cheltenham. 

    About the role

    We publish authoritative and trusted quantitative research on all aspects of university admissions, which shapes the national understanding of higher education. But we also use our research capability behind the scenes, to put an evidence base under important decisions on running the admissions service, and to help universities, schools and Government achieve their objectives.

    We now have an opportunity for a senior analysis professional, who combines deep technical knowledge, a focus on customer needs, and influencing skills.

Working closely with colleagues across the Analysis and Research business unit, and UCAS’ Executive Team, this important role sets the agenda on our analytical understanding of admissions and ensures that understanding drives better outcomes across UCAS and beyond.

    You will take complex situations and use your analytical expertise to define the right questions, answer them in the right way, and ensure those answers have the right impact. Able to think long-term, you will translate the strategic analytical direction into a coherent and efficient research programme. Your excellent analytical judgement and communication skills let you distill complicated results down to salient points, and then ensure that senior decision makers understand and can act on them.

    Working through a code-based SAS platform you will find the most demanding new research yourself, but the majority of your success will be enabling quality, creativity and innovation in the work of all your team.

    You will work closely with the Director of Analysis and Research to set the direction of travel for our research, and create and execute the strategy to achieve this. Overall, you will be a key figure in setting the agenda for ensuring the organisation has the right understanding and research capability for achieving its strategic objectives.

     

    Person specification

    ·         High level abilities to diagnose customer and business needs and construct efficient research activities to directly answer them – track record of creation of value for customers through data.

    ·         Deep knowledge and experience of directly using a wide range of analysis, statistical and data science methods – equivalent to that typically gained from extensive working experience.

    ·         Advanced analytical programming expertise in SAS, commensurate with a senior technical professional across analysis methods, data creation and output.

    ·         High levels of professional judgement in choosing analysis pathways that give rapid, high quality, actionable results.

    ·         Leadership and management capability to achieve section outcomes. Evidenced ability to build strategic capacity in teams.

    Package

    £60,000 - £90,000 with 30 days annual leave, voluntary flexible benefits, paid volunteering days, and a contributory stakeholder pension. It’s not just about the financial benefits that UCAS offers – on-site you can also benefit from our restaurant, affordable gym membership, free parking, unlimited tea and coffee, and many other perks. You’ll enjoy an exciting, agile working environment, with a vibrant culture and flexible approach to work, all of which reflects our teamwork and innovative spirit.

    Imperial College London is a science-based institution with the greatest concentration of high-impact research of any major UK university. The Institute for Molecular Science and Engineering (IMSE) seeks an outstanding individual to establish a new series of White Papers that will shape the discourse in molecular science and engineering and play a key role in communicating the depth and breadth of Imperial’s expertise and insight to key commercial innovators and other stakeholders.   

    This new post is an exciting opportunity to contribute to a recently established and fast growing global institute at Imperial, whose goal is to establish a new collaborative approach to grand challenge problems with a molecular dimension. This approach is based on the integration of innovation in molecular science with engineering of technological solutions. Although there are a growing number of examples where this approach has proven successful, the prevailing culture in research and development is for the loose coupling of research projects performed within well-established disciplines. The shift to a fully integrated innovation cycle requires a significant change in perspective of individual research groups, departments, faculties, funding agencies and commercial sponsors. 

    IMSE is committed not only to stimulating and supporting integrated research but also to making real inroads into technological grand challenges. Collaborating with industry and influencing external stakeholders is crucial to this. These papers are designed to inform funding agencies, policy makers and potential commercial partners of the power of this integrated approach of science and engineering.

    The IMSE White Paper Coordinator will support the planning, writing and dissemination of such White Papers for IMSE. The applicant’s primary focus will be to coordinate the writing of a series of White Papers, and will also involve other aspects of communication to stakeholders as appropriate. The postholder will work closely with academics across the university to craft exceptional papers that meet the interests of our desired audiences. A core part of the role will be to identify and consult key stakeholders and disseminate the papers effectively to reach the desired audience.

    Applicants should have a good undergraduate level or Masters degree, (or equivalent) in a science or engineering subject. Scientific/technical communication at a high level, with experience of communicating scientific concepts to diverse audiences, as well as exposure to working with academics or in an academic environment and of collaborating across disciplines is essential for this role.

    Our preferred method of application is online via the Imperial College London website: go to https://www.imperial.ac.uk/job-applicants/  (Select “Job Search” then enter the job title or vacancy reference number into “Keywords”). Please complete and upload an application form as directed quoting reference number EN20160352AM.
