Job Description:

An opportunity has arisen to join De Montfort University’s (DMU) Continuous Improvement Team as a Continuous Improvement Analyst. DMU is an ambitious, globally-minded institution with a relentless focus on delivering quality teaching and learning, and a campus-wide focus on providing a sector-leading student experience.

A culturally rich university with a palpable commitment to the public good, it strives to maintain a stimulating and inclusive environment where staff and students are able to thrive. The university is a vibrant, multicultural hub of
learning, creativity and innovation that never surrenders to convention. Our success is built on a fantastic student experience coupled with award-winning teaching and world-class facilities that help students develop the skills and
attitudes employers demand.

Faculty / Directorate
The Continuous Improvement Team forms part of the new Transformation Office and plays a vital role in developing and managing comprehensive changes to how the university operates its business, including delivery of a critical multi-year transformation journey to align our technology, our people and our ways of working to ensure that the objectives of the Empowering University Strategy are met. In order to effectively manage the complex change at DMU the new Transformation Office was established and reports into the Chief Transformation Officer. The service brings together the continuous improvement and strategic project management capabilities into one cross-cutting team, and introduces a dedicated portfolio management capability
for our strategic projects.

As a Continuous Improvement Analyst, you will be supporting the introduction of a continuous improvement culture through a combination of direct business process reviews and the transfer of Continuous Improvement skills to the wider organisation.

Your new job will require you to be client facing in delivering a variety of improvement projects across all Faculties and Directorates. This will involve scoping and diagnostic work, workshop facilitation, the application of
Continuous Improvement tools, and relevant data analysis. You will set the standards, processes, templates, targets, training and support delivery where required.

This position is offered on a hybrid basis and the successful applicant will be required to adopt a flexible approach in terms of the number of days working either from home or on campus.

You will also be required to be actively involved in providing externally accredited Continuous Improvement training to our colleagues across DMU.

The role is on a full time (37 hours per week), permanent basis.

Ideal Candidate
Ideally, we are looking for an experienced and enthusiastic CI Practitioner who is currently working in a CI related role which may or may not be related to a Higher Education institution.

We will need you to demonstrate your experience of working within a client facing role and evidence your business improvement evaluation skills.

For an informal conversation please contact Jo Burt, Business Process Improvement Analyst via jburt@dmu.ac.uk.

Please note – applications will only be accepted from those who have the right to work in the UK as this role is not eligible for sponsorship under the Skilled Worker Route.
