One post
(a) will focus on support for the University's resource allocation process, and the annual HEFCE funding round. It will involve analysing and presenting quantitative data; dealing with national funding systems for higher education, and the University's internal resource allocation processes; preparing and presenting written reports; and extensive liaison with departments around the University.

The second post
(b) will focus on data management and analysis, initially in the Staff Records area, and preparation for the University's annual staff return to the Higher Education and Statistics Agency (HESA).
