Job Description

  • $1,000 - $1,200 + Super
  • 6 Month Contract + Likely Extensions
  • Prestigious University

Bluefin Resources are working with a Prestigious University to recruit a Data Governance Lead.

The Data Governance (DG) strategy was developed in 2018, endorsed by the Data Owners' Management Group (DOMG) and approved by UE Reporting and Analytics Committee (UE-RAC) at the time. IAP began implementation of the strategy in 2019 via the Data Governance Implementation project with the engagement of a consultant from a consultancy to assist. The initial tasks undertaken in 2019 up to early 2020 include:

  • Development of DG roles and responsibilities
  • Development of processes for:
    • data profiling and acquisition
    • data quality
    • metadata management
    • data modelling
  • Development of an operating framework and process management
  • Implementation of pilot processes for the Amplify project
  • Initiation of the procurement process for a data catalogue tool

In 2020 the project was put on hold due to COVID-19 which meant that procurement of a data catalogue tool could not proceed without funding. During 2020 and into 2021 the Data Governance Officer (BAU resource) focused on:

  • Developing the Data Governance Policy (in draft)
  • Continuing to embed the DG processes into the initiatives that IAP delivered
  • Maintaining the Master Organisational Hierarchy (MOH) and administering the MOH change process

Where we are now and role of the Data Governance Lead

As the project has been re-started, we are at a point where we can now kick the project off again by:

  • Establishing project governance through engaging a DG Project Manager
  • Hiring an experienced Data Governance Lead to drive the implementation of the DG Strategy to the next stage

Working with the Data Governance Officer, DG Project Manager, Manager - Institutional Analytics Services and Head of Institutional Analytics, the Data Governance Lead will:

  • provide subject matter expertise for the procurement of a Data Catalogue tool
  • finalise and implement the DG Policy
  • further develop and implement the DG framework, including roles and responsibilities, processes and procedures
  • engage with stakeholders across the University to raise awareness and understanding of DG and its importance for a data-driven organisation.

Planning will be undertaken to determine the scope that can be achieved over the course of the initial 6-month term.

On Offer - This is a 6 month contract with the high chance of ongoing extensions, working from home initially - office location, Sydney CBD.
