Insight to foresight

UCAS Media has launched a new consultancy service. Built on the power of UCAS data, our new team of consultants and data scientists is generating new insights to help our education clients to develop the foresight for future planning. 

Our vision is to become the go to consultancy in higher education, unlocking the value of data, driving business relevant insights and transforming the higher education sector. 

UCAS Consultancy and Insights launched last year, as part of UCAS Media (the commercial arm of UCAS) and is growing fast. The strength of our team combined with our collaborative approach is striking a chord with customers. 

They have genuinely felt like an extension to our team and have shown real commitment to helping us gain a comprehensive understanding." 

Director of Marketing and Communication 

We are looking for a number of driven and data-savvy consultants to help us drive our clients’ strategies.

Our consultants range from data scientists specialised in data mining, forecasting, and generating insights and knowledge, to customer-facing data consultants who work to define challenges and make meaningful recommendations in close partnership with our clients. 

So regardless of whether your passion is in the detail and discovery of secrets in the data, or being the face of consultancy and making a real difference to our clients, we have a role for you.
