About Us

The King’s community is dedicated to the service of society. King’s Strategic Vision 2029 sets out our vision for the future, shaped around five priority areas: educate to inspire and improve; research to inform and innovate; serve to shape and transform; a civic university at the heart of London; and an international community that services the world. Our ambitious Education Strategy sets out the actions that we must take to transform how we teach, how and where our students learn and how we support them during their time with us.

Within the Social Mobility & Widening Participation Department we believe all young people should be able to have high expectations for their future. This means equal access to education and career opportunities. We run programmes that aim to empower young people from under-represented backgrounds to access and succeed at university.

We are part of the wider Students & Education Directorate, a collection of wide-ranging professional services in place to support King’s students and their education. As a directorate we manage the student lifecycle from application to graduation and beyond, to ensure a coherent and seamless student experience and effective administrative processes, working closely with King’s faculties to do so.

About the Role

This is an exciting opportunity for candidates looking to support young people from underrepresented backgrounds to access and thrive in higher education. The role supports students applying to university and aspiring to study medicine, dentistry or healthcare courses. This includes navigating the additionally complex application process required for medical and dental schools.

The role involves leading the development of clinical skills sessions within our Year 7 – 9 King’s Scholars programme, working with colleagues to project manage the K+ Year 12 – 13 Medicine and Dentistry streams, and co-leading outreach for medicine & dentistry work experience support and summer schools. This role is an opportunity to grow your skills in project management, event delivery and collaboration.

We encourage applications from candidates who have experience from both within and outside of the Higher Education sector where they can demonstrate the skills needed to succeed in this role.

This post will be offered on a fixed-term contract for 18 months.

This is a full-time post, but we welcome applications from candidates seeking a flexible work pattern within our 10am to 4pm service operating hours.

Key responsibilities

  • Lead the project management of K+ Year 12 - 13 Medicine and Dentistry and clinical skills sessions for Years 6 - 9.
  • Co-lead the project management of work experience and admissions support for prospective medicine and dentistry students.
  • Maintain good working relationships with a range of colleagues and partners including schools, academics, local hospital Trusts, medical and dentistry schools, admissions and current students employed as ambassadors.
  • Collect and analyse data to report annually on programme effectiveness.
  • Manage project budgets.
  • Support with the organisation and delivery of the Department’s summer schools.

The above list of responsibilities may not be exhaustive, and the post holder will be required to undertake such tasks and responsibilities as may reasonably be expected within the scope and grading of the post.
