Applications are invited for the post of Project Administrator to join us in the Network for East Anglian Collaborative Outreach (neaco) Central Team.

As the neaco Project Administrator, you will hold responsibility for the core administrative functions of the Central Team to July 2022 (and beyond pending future funding). You will take on a key role in underpinning and supporting our successes in East Anglia, and as part of a national project, to enable young peoples’ informed decision-making on, and progression to, Higher Education opportunities. Your primary responsibility is the administration of the Central Team’s operations, as well as providing or supporting the team’s key functions in finance, data and evaluation, communications and partner coordination. You will also directly support the Project Manager, and network partners where required. 

In this role you join neaco’s Central Team at the University of Cambridge, which leads the Office for Students (OfS) funded Uni Connect project in East Anglia. Nationally, Uni Connect aims to increase the ability of young people from low participation neighbourhoods to make informed decisions on progression to higher education pathways – whichever route, subject and pathway that may be. As the lead for neaco, we represent our partnership of the five Universities and nine Further Education Colleges in East Anglia. We have worked together since 2017 to deliver an unprecedented outreach programme, through which to effectively engage diverse audiences across East Anglia, and achieve the Uni Connect goals. More information on our partnership is available at www.takeyourplace.ac.uk, and on Uni Connect at https://www.ofsuniconnect.org/

You will work alongside seven colleagues in the central team, as well as being part of the larger Cambridge Admissions Office. We expect the role-holder to spend some time each week at our offices in the Student Services Centre in central Cambridge, but there is flexibility to work from home as well. There may be opportunities for occasional travel across the East Anglian region to meet and work alongside partner staff, dependent on Covid guidelines.

This is a fixed term post, the funds for which are available until 31st July 2022, though there is the potential for extension pending confirmation of further funding. We are happy to discuss flexible working requests – please feel free to discuss prior to applying, or at interview if your application is successful.

Closing date: 08.12.2021.

If you wish to make an informal enquiry about the post, please contact Jenny O’Hare, neaco Project Manager, at the University of Cambridge via jenny.ohare@admin.cam.ac.uk

Interviews are expected to be held Wednesday 15th or Thursday 16th December. We hope to offer in person interviews, but if you would prefer to interview online, please indicate this also.
