Communities and Partnerships Assistant

Would you like to help raise the aspirations of adult learners through supporting the organisation of events and activities?  Do you have strong communication and interpersonal skills?  Do you have excellent IT skills and the ability to use databases confidently? 

The Lifelong Learning Centre (LLC) promotes programmes, pathways and support for adult, part-time and foundation level students especially, although not exclusively, those from disadvantaged and under-represented groups.

The Communities and Partnerships (C&P) team at the LLC seeks to create opportunities and develop projects in order to raise the aspirations of adult learners and encourages them to consider university as a realistic option.
A large proportion of the C&P team’s work is centred on organising and running events such as campus visits, study days, seminars and summer schools.  These events are targeted towards a range of participants including adult learners, prospective and current mature and part-time students, University of Leeds alumni and members of the public.

The C&P team are seeking to appoint a dynamic person who will play a key role in the organisation and evaluation of these events. You will work across a range of C&P activities and take the lead in supporting the organisation of certain events.  You will have excellent IT skills and good numeracy skills, supporting the team’s evaluation processes by extracting, collating and presenting data from existing information systems including Microsoft Access databases.  Ideally, you will be able to use social media to promote and disseminate the work of the LLC.  Some evening and weekend working will be required for this role.
