A vacancy has arisen for a Trust Data Manager to work across the Trust with a committed team of professionals to provide data driven support across the whole Academy network.   This is a new post and is instrumental to the Trust’s strategy development, analysis and assessment.

Venturers Trust is a new Multi Academy Trust based in Bristol formed through the merger of CGS Trust and Merchants’ Academy Trust in September 2017. Comprising Primary, Secondary, all-age schools and a Special school the Trust has 3,200 pupils and 724 staff.

The Trust is sponsored by the Society of Merchant Venturers and the University of Bristol. Both sponsors seek to ensure that all our young people receive a truly inspiring education. Their support, challenge and expertise are greatly valued.

The role of Data Manager offers the chance to drive the management information performance of the Trust, which serve some of the most varied communities in Bristol. You will have the opportunity to be part of a team that will secure the very best outcomes for children and support for staff within The Venturers’ Trust.

You will be joining a highly innovative, inspirational and ambitious organisation, so we are seeking an outstanding Team member who can help us realise the highest possible quality of services to support our educational vision, to enable the organisation to achieve the best possible outcomes for students.

We are looking to appoint an effective and efficient Data Manager to work alongside the senior team, CEO, COO, Principals and Directors of the Executive Trust team, to be proactive in supporting the schools. The successful candidate will ensure the smooth analysis, interpretation and correlation of the Trusts data through IT and educational software systems, management collation and interpretation of data. It is essential that the candidate demonstrate an ability to work with a range of people at all levels including young people as well as being a committed team player.

You will be responsible for creating, using and maintaining databases to support the reporting and presentation of all research metrics that capture performance across the Trust. This would facilitate queries, reports and data retrieval to be performed in an efficient manner, and to explore opportunities to streamline data capture across teams within the Trust as well as capturing raw data from multiple data sources across the organisations. Maintenance of data quality and integration of content from multiple data sources will be a key function of this post. The post holder will be able to analyse complex trends involving multiple streams of data and forecast implications and make judgments, both in short and long term.
