I've always been interested in education but not teaching, more the theoretical side of things. I've seen some jobs advertised for data managers/assistants in schools.
Does anyone have any experience in one of these roles? What was your background and how did you get into it? What qualifications are essential? Any other interesting education jobs that are worth looking out for?
I am just about to finish a PhD in an analytical subject and looking for the next step as I don't want to stay in academia. Would be wanting to earn a starting salary around £30k ideally.
