An exciting opportunity for an experienced individual to create and deliver outreach activities that will raise the aspirations of young people and have a potentially life changing impact.     

The role will have the autonomy of building and maintaining strong relationships with a key list of account schools and colleges throughout Shropshire and Staffordshire, creating tailored activity plans to suit the needs of the students within each school and college.

With direction from the Hub Manager and the central team at Keele University, the Uni Connect Hub Officer will contribute to collaborative outreach activity in conjunction with partner universities, the collection of participant data and evaluation, and the management of small to medium sized budgets. Managing competing workloads and working to deadlines, the Hub Officer will be expected to make meaningful contributions to targets set by the Hub Manager, the central team, and the Office for Students.

The role offers a great opportunity for an inventive thinker to input and create concepts to generate new pioneering outreach events that will help challenge the barriers that young people may face in the progression to higher education.

Educated to degree level. Must have experience of working with schools and colleges as well as experience of working on widening participation and outreach projects. There is a requirement for good project management skills, as well as communication skills and the willingness to work flexibly.

The Uni Connect programme is currently running until 31st July 2022 and so this will be a fixed term post until this date. There is the potential for an extension, however this will not be decided until next year.
