The Wessex Inspiration Network (WIN) is looking for a creative Project Officer to deliver and enhance a programme of outreach for school and college students from years 9 to 13. A team player, with experience of working with young people in formal and informal settings, you will be part of a team of project officers delivering activity to support students in their progression post-18.

About the role:

You will work as a member of the WIN team, which aims to increase progression to higher education in areas where fewer than average numbers of qualified young people continue on to further study. The WIN is one of the UniConnect consortia funded by the Office for Students (OfS) and covers Bath, North Somerset and Wiltshire. You will also support the WIN Project Manager and project team in the overall management of the project especially in delivering activities such as residentials, workshops, subject specific trips and talks.

We can be flexible on hours for this role, either:

18.25 hours (0.5FTE) per week all year or

19.70 hours (0.54FTE) per week term time only

This is a fixed term post with an expected end date of 31/07/2023, however, there is a possibility of an extension to this date depending on further funding from the Office for Students.

The appointment will be made subject to a Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) clearance being obtained.

About you:

Educated to at least first-degree level (or equivalent) you will have excellent interpersonal and communication skills along with the ability to engage with a wide variety of stakeholders including parents/carers, teachers and youth and community groups. A positive attitude and a strong commitment to building good working relationships and developing collaborative projects with the WIN partner schools and colleges is imperative.
