The University is seeking to appoint an Outreach Officer to lead on the continued delivery of outreach activities as part of the University’s widening participation strategy, as well as to help navigate a university response to the Office for Students attainment raising agenda.

They will have highly developed communication skills and can easily establish and maintain relationships with key stakeholders, including target schools and colleges, parents/carers, external community groups and colleagues within the sector. 

The ideal candidate will have good knowledge of and experience within the widening participation and outreach sector.  In order to be successful in this role, the candidate needs to be an organised individual who is able to manage multiple projects with varying deadlines, and be flexible and adaptable to change.
