Analyst Programmer II

Analyst Programmer II: Information and Technology Services

Recognising that diversity is important in achieving excellence, Rhodes University especially encourages South African members of underrepresented designated groups to apply. Spouses and Partners of existing staff members are also encouraged to apply.

Please note that this appointment will be made in line with the requirements of the Employment Equity Act of RSA and the University’s recruitment and selection policies and equity strategies. The initial focus will be on equity candidates.

In terms of Immigration Legislation (Act No. 13 of 2002 & Regulations), international staff members (non-SA citizens) have to comply with the provisions of the Act. This therefore means that the period of employment to non-SA citizens will be guided by the validity period of the work permit. In line with legislation governing employment of foreign nationals, employment contracts will be offered on the basis that a development plan would be implemented for the transfer of skills to a South African resident. The onus is on candidates to ensure that they are in possession of a valid work permit before the commencement of employment at the University, failing which the employment with Rhodes University will be terminated.

Purpose:

To assist in delivering strategic management information to the University as well as the DoHET This involves assisting in ensuring systems and processes are in place to support accurate collection of underlying data for reporting purposes, systems analysis and development of queries to support such systems. The position also requires querying and analysis of the data to provide answers to ad hoc planning queries. Sometimes this work may involve working with databases and data sources other than the centralised administrative system but will usually be limited to data and databases that are critical to the University administration systems, housed in the University legacy system.

Requirements:

Bachelor degree with majors in Computer Science or Information Systems plus approximately 3 years’ relevant programming experience
