With its position within the top 30 largest universities in the country, LJMU is also one of the biggest employers in Merseyside. 

LJMU is an ambitious and forward-thinking institution that challenges convention and believes passionately in the concept of ‘One University’ – a community working together to achieve common student-centred objectives within a clear strategy. Our vision is to be recognised as a modern civic university delivering solutions to the challenges of the 21st century, and to deliver our mission of creating and sustaining a vibrant community for learning and knowledge where staff and students work together in an active and supportive partnership. We provide opportunities to enrich our students, partners and the wider society through education, training, research, scholarship and knowledge transfer. 

Thanks to an ambitious growth plan, focused on providing an exceptional student experience by providing high quality teaching supported by ground breaking research, LJMU is an exciting and challenging place to build a career. The University embraces technology to the positive advantage of staff, students and partners.

The Student Systems Engineer will form part of a team responsible for the deployment, customisation, integration and maintenance of the suite of software that comprises the University’s student information systems.  The primary system is PeopleSoft Campus Solutions, utilising an Oracle Enterprise database. A wide range of tools will be used in the support of an integrated enterprise-wide management information system that underpins the University’s core business and supports its strategic plan. 

Working within the Business Information Systems group, you will deliver solutions that exploit existing and new system functionality to facilitate improved business processes. The expectation is that you will be an experienced Oracle programmer, ideally with some experience of PeopleTools and/or PeopleCode (or related technologies). Suitable training will be provided.
