The Organisation

The Brilliant Club is an award-winning university access charity. We work with schools and universities across the UK and mobilise the PhD community to support less advantaged students to access the most competitive universities and to succeed when they get there. In pursuit of our mission, The Brilliant Club runs two core programmes, The Scholars Programme and The Brilliant Tutoring Programme.

The Opportunity

We are excited to be recruiting for tutors to join our Researcher Development Programme, which offers PhD and Early Career researchers a meaningful, paid professional development opportunity.

Tutors working with us will:

  • Support local pupils from less advantaged backgrounds
  • Get expert training and real experience to develop their teaching and other transferable skills
  • Join a nationwide community of researchers making a significant impact on university access
  • Develop competencies compatible with Vitae’s Researcher Development Framework’

Please see more detail here about both The Brilliant Tutoring Programme and The Scholars Programme.

The Brilliant Club exists to increase the number of pupils from less advantaged backgrounds progressing to the most competitive universities. We think it is important that our charity reflects the lived experience of our beneficiaries, and we want to be an organisation where employees from any background can thrive.

We particularly welcome applications from disabled, Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME), Lesbian, Gay, Bi, Trans including non-binary (LGBTQ+) candidates, and candidates from low-income families. These groups are currently underrepresented at The Brilliant Club and we are committed to increasing representation and diversity at the charity.
