Coventry University has been ranked joint first amongst Modern Universities in England for career prospects and we are in the top 6 universities for student experience. Our commitment to providing the best for our students doesn’t stop with them, it starts with our people.

The Strategic Planning and Analytics Office (SPAO) is a key professional service delivering insight to a wide range of stakeholders to support evidence-based decision making across the business. We are seeking exceptional new colleagues to join our recruitment and admissions focussed insights team.
