Are you a highly skilled, delivery-focused Data Architect with experience of shaping data strategies to meet the business needs for large organisations? Are you interested in supporting the delivery of the University’s transformational change programme?

The University of Leeds is currently progressing the Student Lifecycle Programme to enhance the processes, systems and ways of working that support students on their lifecycle from initial enquiry through to joining the university, and ultimately graduating from the University. The programme will deliver an integrated record of student and curriculum information, improvements in efficiency, resilient and flexible administrative systems, and an enhanced student and staff experience.
