Are you looking to develop your career into data management?
This role will mainly focus upon maintaining and updating our schools management information system (SIMS), as well as providing general administrative and reception support. It is a varied role, but one which does requires strong IT skills and experience.
We are a new secondary school and from September 2017 we will grow to 350 pupils in Years 7 & 8. We anticipate that as the school grows we will have a future need for a role which focuses solely on data management and so are looking for a candidate who can demonstrate and show the potential to be considered for this. We anticipate this need will arise when we commence exams and as student capacity increases.
Whilst SIMS experience is not required, transferable experience of using and managing large scale databases is essential - ideally within an IT environment.
With your solid IT background you will navigate and exploit all areas of SIMS for maximum gain, from creating template reports, bulk entry of data to mail merge functionality.
As well as maximising the system’s potential, you will also lead on data entry particularly around admission/assessment periods. You will have an aptitude for fast and accurate data entry, with an eye for detail.
You will ensure data is routinely cleansed and validated and produce Census outputs for DFE, as well as supporting the annual admissions data transfer. Additionally, you will create system templates for data capture, maintain and update the assessment area of SIMS and produce mark sheets to meet the data collection needs of the school.
The role will also involve a range of administrative activities and the provision of first class customer service on our school reception.
We are looking for someone who has a flexible, friendly approach to their work, an aptitude for working with databases, a curious, resilient and problem solving approach to challenges/new situations and strong customer service skills when supporting both internal and external customers.
