Job Responsibilities
You will play a crucial role in leading a small team to develop, install and maintain ETL services across the university. Bringing in-depth ETL and Data Warehousing knowledge, you will advise and support team members in their technical activities and show the ability and enthusiasm to adapt to changing technologies.

You will have a wealth of experience with script and program development, to facilitate automation processes, and will act as an ambassador for ETL across the university, working closely with key stakeholders to increase the understanding of ETL services, and identify where ETL technologies can be leveraged for operational effectiveness.

Core Skills

  • Experience working with IBM InfoSphere Information server
  • Design, development and operational support of ETL processes

  • Experience of leading a small team in a technical environment
  • ITIL qualified or experience of working within an ITIL aligned environment
  • Exposure to other ETL technologies (Oracle, SSIS) and an understanding of reporting technologies are desirable, though not essential.


  • You will be self-motivated and dynamic, and able to engage, challenge and influence others
  • A track record of developing and maintaining collaborative working relationships across IT and the wider institution
  • An ability to explain technical issues to non-specialists, and to write clear technical reports and other formal documentation for solution deployments and evaluations is essential.

As an employer of choice, University College London offers an extensive benefits package including:

  • A competitive salary package of £43,023 - £50,753 (inclusive of London weighting allowance)
  • 41 days leave (27 days annual leave plus six closure days, plus statutory bank holidays)
