Senior Education Outreach Officer

Do you want to play a key outreach role in recruiting the best students, irrespective of background? Do you have the skills to lead on a developed outreach programme of engagement, inspiring and preparing young people for the transition to Higher Education?

In the Education Outreach team, we work in partnership with teams and services across campus, promoting the University of Leeds to enable us to recruit the brightest and the best students regardless of background. We are instrumental in leading and supporting a co-ordinated and focussed approach to outreach and engagement including the sharing of best practice and representing the University at on and off-campus events (including UCAS /Higher Education (HE) fairs and campus visits). 

You will work to co-ordinate our successful Research and Study Skills programme, focussing on the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) and the Extended Essay in the International Baccalaureate (IB). You will be responsible for delivering workshops in schools across the country to support students with these qualifications. You will also take an active role in developing the existing EPQ and IB programmes of engagement; promoting, co-ordinating, monitoring and assessing engagement, as well as assisting in the management of a trained team of Education Outreach Fellows (EOFs), who assist with the delivery of the Research Skills programme.

You should be highly organised and able to meet changing deadlines in a dynamic work environment. Effective networking skills and an ability to build and sustain productive working relationships both internally and externally is essential to the role.

You will be required to travel to schools and colleges across the country and will be expected to undertake evening, weekend work and overnight stays when necessary.
