Seeking nominations for the AGCAS Data Insights Director

14 May 2021

Would you like to help position AGCAS as experts in the HE data landscape, leading the profession’s response to the use of data in the context of graduate employment and student career development? 

The Data Insights Director, supported by the Head of External Relations, is responsible for the Data Insights strategic theme, which incorporates:

  • student entry, registration and engagement data
  • outcomes data

With the support of the Head of External Relations and Data Insights sub-groups, the Data Insights Director advocates the use of data to demonstrate impact and inform careers and employability delivery, and develops AGCAS’s strategic responses to the use of data within existing and future metrics. The Data Insight Director also plays a key role in AGCAS’s work with HESA to develop the Graduate Outcomes survey and across the sector to lobby for broader measures of student and graduate success.

We are looking for Full Member candidates who have a strong empathy with AGCAS’s mission, together with an in-depth understanding of our work and ambitions, which includes a commitment to the sharing of expertise and promotion of the careers and employability profession. Crucial to the Data Insights role are a sound understanding of higher education policy and how student and graduate data are used within a metric-driven regulatory landscape, and a comprehensive knowledge of the core datasets used by AGCAS members and how these inform service delivery and planning.
