Our client, The Open University is a public distance learning and Research University, and one of the biggest universities in the UK for undergraduate education.  

The staff are committed to putting their students first and to supporting them to realise their potential. Study with the OU is more than just education – it is life changing learning, do you want to be part of this team?

The OU is looking to recruit an experienced Stabilisation Project Manager to work within Student Services.

The project objectives are:

1 To stabilise the IT components of the Post Liability Programme (process to send information to and from the Student Loan Company)
2 To provide tuition fee liability and tuition fee loan information at the student level
3 To update and strengthen our ability to process new loan products
4 To reconcile the fee and loan income and cash receipts via a cashbook and sub-ledger

We are delivering solutions in 2 phases.
• Phase 1 will update, stabilise and de-risk the business and IT systems that exchange files with SLC and update student records delivering benefits around automation and risk mitigation. The development work will be carried out by an off-shore team, and plans for on-boarding this team are already underway.

• Phase 2 will deliver new functionality, a student loan account with cash book and sub-ledger and deliver financial benefits from account processing, automation and cost avoidance. This phase is less advanced, but we are working with a third party supplier exploring whether their off the shelf product can meet our business requirements.

If this role is of interest, your available immediately and ongoing, please call Sophie Holmes or Megan Evans-Evans on 01908 660057 to discuss the role further.
