We are looking for an enthusiastic and experienced Project Manager to join our vibrant Student Support department in the undertaking of an externally funded project. The Project Manager is responsible for overseeing the Care Leaver’s Access, Support and Success (CLASS) project, including delivering interventions within the programme and evaluating the impact of the interventions. The Project Manager will coordinate focus groups with students and develop the Supporting Transitions Programme (STP), involving project partners in the development and implementation of the programme. Finally, the Project Manager will oversee the budget expenditure and prepare reports for dissemination.
The Project Manager will work closely with Professional Services, the School of Psychology and School of Health and Life Sciences to successfully implement an innovative STP. Additionally, the post-holder will collaborate with project partners and additional key stakeholders to ensure the project aims are achieved.
In addition to the role requiring a PhD in Psychology or a masters with significant relevant experience, we are looking for someone who is passionate, driven and proactive.
The externally funded CLASS project aims to empower care experienced students through the provision of a STP delivered across each stage of the student cycle, starting with their transition from school to University and onward to a successful career. This ambitious programme will bring together care leavers to collaborate with academic experts, student support services, clinicians, and national and local stakeholders to develop students’ personal and social skills, lifestyle management, academic skills, employability skills and succession planning to ensure a smooth and successful transition and progression at University and beyond. Finally, it will be a unique opportunity for all care leavers attending any London University to build a supportive network.
