Employability Officer

Are you a well organised and adaptable individual, committed to delivering an excellent student experience? Do you want to support students within the Faculty of Social Sciences to succeed after graduation by providing high quality Employability support during their time at Leeds?

Your role will be to develop, support and deliver employability opportunities for students which enable them to succeed both as student and once they have graduated. You will also provide effective administrative support for a range of employability interventions such as placements, events and workshops. Initially you will be assigned to support the School of Sociology and Social Policy and the School of Politics and International Studies, however as we develop our service provision, it is expected the scope of the role may change and grow, so you will need to have a flexible approach to work.

You will be well organised, with excellent attention to detail and are able to demonstrate a strong team ethic in relation to supporting both careers and academic colleagues. You will also be able to multi-task in order to work effectively within and across Schools to support their employability priorities and deadlines. 

You will work collaboratively with team members within your School, Faculty, Student Careers and other services, sharing information, making connections and improving the service we deliver. At all times, you will be sensitive and supportive in relation to the student experience and ensure that student voice and inclusive practice is at the centre of all we do.
