Richard Puttock, Head of Data, Foresight and Analysis

"These are senior roles that will require candidates to navigate and appreciate the political environment that we operate in."

Richard Puttock, Head of Data, Foresight and Analysis

Dear Candidate

The Data, Foresight and Analysis Directorate are seeking two talented, driven and innovative individuals to join our supportive, enthusiastic and high performing team.  As the new regulator within higher education, and following an organisational restructuring, this is a great time to be joining the Office for Students and these are two fantastic opportunities within the Directorate. 

There are two Principal Analyst roles available:

Principal Analyst (Foresight) – a full time role.  The purpose of the role is to anticipate changes to the HE sector and, on the basis of current trends, derive projections of future behaviours to update regulatory interventions and understand risk. 

Principal Analyst (Gateways) - 0.7fte.  The purpose of the role is to lead a team of data analysts responsible for developing, implementing and quality assuring the data used in OfS`s gateways processes, delivering robust data that supports market entry and exit and the transparency condition data is well defined and published by OfS.  

You will need to have excellent communication and negotiating skills and the ability to build constructive, sustainable working relationships with a wide range of stakeholders and senior managers.  These are senior roles that will require candidates to navigate and appreciate the political environment that we operate in.

I do hope that the information provided on this site further fuels your interest and I look forward to hearing from you.  You can apply through this microsite and details of our advising consultants at GatenbySanderson, who you can have an informal and confidential discussion with, are provided.
