Collaborative Outreach Officer

Are you passionate about making a difference and improving access to higher education?  Can you work on your own initiative and take a proactive approach to organising events? Are you highly organised, and able to work collaboratively across a range of partners to coordinate activity, achieve results and meet targets?

Go Higher West Yorkshire (GHWY) is a consortium of 12 higher education (HE) providers in West Yorkshire.  Our aim is to act as the definitive source of information on our HE providers, and our ethos is that no one should be prevented from accessing HE because of their background.  As part of this work, across the partnership we undertake collaborative outreach and we are looking for a self-motivated and enthusiastic person to coordinate and drive this forwards on behalf of our partners.

You will be highly organised and methodical in your approach, ensuring a professional response for GHWY’s HE partners, as well as the schools, colleges and other bodies with whom we work.  A strong team player, you will bring your experience of working with young people – including a thorough understanding of the associated safeguarding and data protection issues – and of event organisation.
