We are Cambridge University Press & Assessment, a world-leading academic publisher and assessment organisation, and a proud part of the University of Cambridge.
We are looking for a confident and capable Data Analyst to join OCR's Research and Technical Standards (RTS) team.
Research and Technical Standards (RTS) is a technical team of data analysts, researchers and experts in the field of educational assessment. Reporting to a Senior Data Analyst, you will join a busy and dynamic team that play a crucial role in ensuring that OCR's assessments are awarded to the highest standards, meeting the expectations of both our customers and the UK exams regulator. We are focused on maintaining and improving assessment standards in OCR products through structured research, statistical investigation, complex data handling and liaison with stakeholders across the sector.
The main focus of the Data Analyst role is to conduct data analyses and provide technical expertise to support the delivery of candidate results and to develop and improve OCR assessments and processes. The Data Analyst also contributes to research activity carried out by the RTS team.
You will have experience of working in a time-pressurised environment and will be used to managing and prioritising competing deadlines and demands, while maintaining very high standards of quality control over the output you produce.
You will be familiar with the practices associated with the manipulation and analysis of large, complex datasets that may come from a variety of sources and in different formats.
Though not essential, some experience of the educational assessment context is desirable.
In addition to a competitive salary, we offer a comprehensive package of benefits to help with your life both inside and outside of work:
The closing date for applications is 03 December 2021 and interviews are scheduled to take place on w/c 13 December 2021.
