The successful candidate will be joining a large service which is committed to working together to combine the skills, insights and experience of teams working directly with students, academics, employers and other stakeholders, with those of our enabling teams to develop and deliver a consistently high level of service and professional standards.
The Employability Officer will be central to engaging students in careers and employability services and events via various channels of promotion and liaison. The post holder will also arrange workshops, employer events, information presentations and work with relevant student societies and clubs, including engaging with the Students’ Union.
The Employability Officer will deliver general high-level administration and will be encouraged to contribute to the development of new initiatives and developments. This would give the post holder experience of communicating with students in a specific faculty as well as students from any discipline involved in extracurricular activities. The role also involves some one-to-one work with students and liaison with employers and so flexibility will be required to handle the variety of activities involved. Candidates should be flexible and innovative, seeking to empower students and engage proactively with service, academic schools and professional services across the university.
The successful candidate may have a background in career development, or other roles that have involved engaging groups of students in positive ways.
