Do you have the analytical and interpersonal skills we need and want to make a difference?

This is an excellent opportunity to be responsible for the provision of management information, data analyses and policy reports to inform planning, decision-making and resource allocation at institutional and departmental level on equality and diversity matters.  This will focus primarily on Athena SWAN (and in future any other equality charters) and include frequent interaction with relevant staff in academic departments. 

The role will involve research, assembling and interpreting complex data, liaising frequently with central database managers (mainly HR and Academic Registry) and Business Intelligence staff in Computing Services.  The postholder will provide consistent, high quality data, data visualisations and data analyses to support institutional and departmental Athena SWAN submissions and other University submissions. 

The role will also support equality and diversity activity more generally, including through the holding of relevant events.  For details of our equality and diversity activity please see http://www.bath.ac.uk/equalities/.
