Database Administrator

Confetti Institute of Creative Technologies (CICT) is a forward thinking centre of learning, home to the very best technology, studios, equipment and industry-connected tutors. Now in our 25th year, we provide a vibrant and professional learning environment for over 2000 passionate and committed students studying for careers in the creative industries. In 2015 the Confetti Media Group was acquired by Nottingham Trent University, increasing the opportunities for growth and success over the coming years. We have recently undergone an exciting campus transformation, part of a £12m development programme.

We are looking for a self-motivated, organised and enthusiastic Database Administrator to hold overall responsibility for our FileMaker data management system, which tracks all aspects of the student journey.

You will be responsible for running, developing and updating our FileMaker system, whilst also producing KPI reports and other on-demand data requests to support our education management team. With strong numerical and analytical skills, you will be confident in interpreting and analysing results using a variety of statistical techniques. Although specific experience in the use of FileMaker is not essential, the ideal candidate will have proven detailed experience in designing, managing and running other database systems. Proficiency across MS Office is vital and the ideal candidate will hold qualifications in Mathematics and ICT at a minimum of Level 2 or equivalent.

We are looking for someone with excellent attention to detail, who thrives under pressure and can demonstrate the ability to prioritise their workload effectively and efficiently, whilst working as part of a growing team.

With Metronome still in its first year, and CICT celebrating its 25th anniversary of delivering education for the creative industries, there hasn’t been a better time to join CMG.

In return you will receive a generous holiday allowance, starting at 28 days per year, plus bank holidays and Christmas closure, as well as access to a range of other employee benefits, including our travel discounts and our healthcare cash plan.

Confetti is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of young people and vulnerable adults and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. The post is subject to an Enhanced Disclosure application to the Disclosure & Barring Service.

CMG consists of Spool, our post-production, film and TV company, our live event venue, Metronome, our creative business centre, Antenna and our furniture design and installation company, Constellations. We are a key partner in Nottingham’s TV channel Notts TV and are at the forefront of developments within the Creative Quarter.
