The University of Hull is looking to recruit a Collaborative Outreach Officer (Outreach and Engagement) to take a leading role in the delivery of the National Collaborative Outreach Programme (NCOP) for the collaborative consortium, the University of Hull Federation of Regional Colleges for Engagement (FORCE).

NCOP aims to rapidly increase the progression rates of young people entering higher education in areas where current progression is low and lower than expected given Key Stage 4 attainment levels.

You will have responsibility for the delivery of engaging and effective outreach activities to young people in schools and colleges. You will be responsible for designing or creating new activities aiming to support and encourage young people to progress to higher education, as well as delivering them. You will manage a team who will support you with the design and delivery of these activities.

You will need experience working with young people and to be able to deliver engaging activities in schools and colleges. You will be highly professional, representing the University and the FORCE consortium when working with schools and colleges in the Humber area and building relationships with them. You will need to be able to manage and motivate a team and work closely with partners in the consortium.

This post is fixed term until 31 December 2018. The National Collaborative Outreach Programme funding is confirmed until this time, however it is intended that it will continue for a further two years if reasonable progress is made towards national goals.
