The newly created Careers, Employability and Student Enterprise is an energetic and welcoming division of the University, with ambitious plans to grow. This is a very exciting time to join us as we seek to develop the Careers Fair and Events Programme that we offer to our students.
Careers Fairs and Events give students the opportunity to develop their employability skills, to network with employers, and to begin conversations about work experience and graduate positions. This position is at the heart of making these opportunities happen.
This is an exciting and diverse role within our Employer Engagement team. Working closely with the other Employer Engagement Co-ordinator (Events), you will be actively involved in the design, delivery and promotion of our Careers Fairs and Events.
This post presents a fantastic opportunity for an efficient and motivated individual who enjoys working in a fast-paced supportive environment.
You will provide comprehensive, effective, and efficient planning and delivery of central University Careers Fairs and events. You will be expected to build successful working relationships with key partners both externally and within the university.
Strong written and verbal communication skills, interpersonal skills, and the ability to work well within teams are essential. You will be able to apply good judgement and take a creative approach to problem-solving and continuous improvement. Time management, organisational skills, data analysis and a good working knowledge of Microsoft products are also requirements.
Candidates should be able to commit to occasional evening and weekend work as a requirement of the role.
What we can offer you
We are committed to supporting our staff and students, we are open to a flexible and hybrid working approach. We consider applicants that wish to work flexibly and those who have taken a career break.
As well as additional benefits that will make your life easier, such as a generous holiday allowance and additional university closure days. We will support your long-term future too, with access to the Universities Superannuation Scheme (USS), subsidised health and fitness facilities and a range of discounts.
As a university, we aim to create an environment where everyone can thrive and are proactive in fostering a culture of inclusion, respect, and equality of opportunity. We believe that we can only truly meet our objectives if we are reflective of society, so we are passionate about creating a working environment in which you are free to bring your whole self to work.
