Job summary

Are you an Excel guru? Database expert? Can you build a mailing file going to 100,000+ people? Can you use data visualisation tools to create simple and elegant charts from complex datasets? Then you could be our next Reporting and Insight Coordinator.

We are looking for a talented and passionate data specialist to join our Data and Insight team within the Advancement division. You will work extensively on our Alumni and Fundraising database, with responsibility for delivering reports, mailing files and other data solutions that are essential to the activities of our division. You’ll also use Power BI to bring our reporting and analysis to life with interactive and dynamic visualisations.  

This role is a great opportunity to work in a successful and ambitious team, within a world leading university, on many interesting and challenging problems. So, if you are looking to further your career and develop your skills in database management or data analysis, then this is the role for you!

Duties and responsibilities

From day one, you will need a strong understanding of our database of over 230,000 alumni and supporters. You’ll use this knowledge to deliver mailing files, event guestlists and other data solutions that are vital to the daily activities of our fundraising, alumni relations and events teams.

You will also be responsible for delivering reports which allow Advancement to track our key performance metrics. Your excellent database knowledge and Excel skills will mean manipulating these large datasets will be second nature to you.

With our team using Power BI to view reports, part of your role will be to maintain and develop this tool. You will need to draw on strong interpersonal and communication skills when liaising with colleagues across our division to understand their requirements or training them on new processes.

With a diverse range or regular and ad hoc tasks often competing for your attention, you will need to keep a good track of your own workload to ensure it is all delivered to a high standard and on time.

Essential requirements


  • To be effective in this role you need experience working on a database, ideally The Raiser’s Edge 7 or a similar supporter/customer relationship management system (CRM). This should include regularly creating queries, exporting and importing data.

  • You will also be highly computer literate, with experience using Microsoft Office, particularly Excel to an advanced level. The ability to create pivot tables, perform vlookups and use other formulae will be essential in this role.

  • You will also need to be able to communicate complex data concepts clearly to a variety of audiences, understanding the impact that data analysis can have on decision making at a range of levels.

Further information

This is a full time and open ended position, and you will be based in the South Kensington Campus.

Imperial College London employees enjoy a range of benefits, including generous annual leave, subsidised leisure facilities and an excellent professional development programme.
