About the role

Based at the University of Leicester the role will work closely with colleagues across the Future Students Office specifically with the the wider Schools and Colleges Outreach Team. You will work with colleagues employed to work on the Pathways project but based across organisations as one collaborative, enthusiastic and supportive team.
