A bit about Marketing, Recruitment and External Relations…

In the Directorate of Marketing, Recruitment and External Relations, we are responsible for the core range of activities that promote and engage with our external environment and stakeholders. This includes both prospective and current students, businesses and our local community. Made up of Marketing and Communications, Student Recruitment and Outreach and Ehenoxternal Relations teams, we work together to plan and deliver key activities that support the University’s ambitions for growth, diversity and an increased profile.

So what's on offer?

This is an exciting opportunity for a recent graduate to gain skills and experience to begin a rewarding career within the higher education sector. The role will give the post-holder the opportunity to gain an understanding of widening participation by way of their designated tasks, staff training and development opportunities.

The post holder will take primary responsibility for the administrative work supporting the Outreach & Widening Participation team. This will involve a wide variety of tasks which are crucial in the smooth running of the team. The role is customer facing and will be the first point of contact for queries from schools and colleges by both phone and email. The role holder will have responsibility for managing the team’s calendar of events, ensuring that information passed onto the outreach officers is accurate and up to date.

The successful candidate will take an active part in supporting on-campus events, taking a lead in pre-event organisation and providing on the day support including giving presentations about student life as a recent graduate. Attendee information will then be added to the HEAT database by the post holder following such events to enable the university to track impact and progress on an ongoing basis.

The post holder will be required to work flexible hours (including evenings and occasional weekend commitments).

You may be asked in the application process to submit a ‘cover letter’. What we are looking for is a detailed personal statement. It is not enough to simply state why you are applying for the role and why you think you are suitable. In order to fully meet the essential criteria candidates must show clear evidence of how they meet the criteria.  Simply stating that you have a skill or experience in an area is not sufficient, you must provide a clear example to show how you have met each of the criterion you address.
