This role is well suited to you if you have experience as a database applications developer (preferably in Ingres or Transact SQL), web developer (including PHP, JavaScript, and CSS), integrations and reports (SSIS and SSRS).

As Analyst Programmer (KMMS) you will:

  • develop, maintain and provide support for student lifecycle systems

To be successful in this role you will need:

  • to be educated to degree level or have equivalent experience
  • demonstrable knowledge of relational database systems, web programming and good development practices
  • excellent communication skills with an ability to build relationships and document work on both a technical level and for user consumption

You will be based in the University of Kent Information Services department, working closely with the KMMS project team responsible for analysing and understanding requirements, then developing and implementing IT services to support the School.

Our vision for KMMS is to create a new medical school for Kent and Medway that becomes a beacon for first-class medical education and research. The School will attract the most talented aspiring doctors from within the local community and beyond, offering training and development opportunities that will help to keep that talent in Kent and Medway.
