Our five core values – Integrity, Connected, Ambition, Respect, Excellence – are shared by our staff and students, representing the expectations we have for ourselves and each other, guiding our day-to-day decisions and the way we behave as individuals in an international organisation.

The University is committed to recruiting the highest calibre of staff in all categories who best meet the requirements of the post and to contribute to the attainment of its core objectives ensuring fair and equitable selection.

As part of our ongoing HR Transformation, we have renamed the Directorate People and Culture, reflecting the way in which this department – and the wider University – puts its people at the centre of everything we do.

You also will be responsible for ongoing development and support of the new system, including the provision of related analytics and will take responsibility for  re-engineering current processes to maximise the benefits of the new business systems whilst adhering to QUB governance requirements.

The successful candidate must have:

  • A Degree and 2 years relevant experience in acquisition/ implementation/ support of a business system OR 5 years recent relevant experience in acquisition/ implementation/ support of a business system
