Since becoming an academy in September 2009, Kettering Buccleuch Academy has seen many exciting changes. We are an all-through academy catering for students aged 4-18. We moved into our new, purpose-built building in January 2013. Under recent new leadership, the academy continues to go from strength to strength, with happy and motivated staff, a supportive culture and plenty of opportunities for personal growth with our excellent staff CPD offer. We offer a range of benefits including United Rewards, covering lifestyle and retail benefits including childcare vouchers, a car lease scheme, cycle to work etc., subsidised meals and an on-site gym which is free for all staff to use.

The role

We are looking for a high calibre, highly motivated, skilled professional to support our data team.  This is a pivotal role within the academy.  You will provide high quality data to inform teaching and learning activities within the academy and be an expert user of the academy’s Management Information System (SIMS).

You will be responsible for leading and managing the information, with accountability for census and pupil data management.  You will also implement and maintain United Learning’s policy and provisions for GDPR, ensuring compliance across the academy.

About You

You will be extremely organised, totally customer focussed with a calm and friendly approach to all stakeholders.  You will have great patience and empathy along with excellent interpersonal skills, as this role involves dealing with students, parents, staff, governors and colleagues within United Learning at all levels.

United Learning

Kettering Buccleuch Academy is part of United Learning, a large, and growing, group of schools aiming to offer a life changing education to children and young people across England.

Our schools work as a team and achieve more by sharing than any single school could. Our subject specialists, our Group-wide intranet, our own curriculum and our online learning portal all help us share knowledge and resource, helping to simplify work processes and manage workloads for an improved work-life balance.

As a Group, we can reward our staff better: with good career opportunities, better pay, benefits, and ultimately, the satisfaction of helping children to succeed. We invest in our staff wellbeing. Our academies each have at least eight INSET days per year (with three of those solely dedicated to planning), and an ongoing group-wide wellbeing programme. It's an ethos we call ‘the best in everyone’.
