Aspire to HE Senior Projects Officer
This position is temporary until 31st December 2018
This is a new and exciting opportunity to play a leading role in the new Aspire to HE consortium that is part of the HEFCE-funded National Collaborative Outreach Programme (NCOP). NCOP aims to increase the number of young people from disadvantaged backgrounds in higher education by 2020. Inspiring and addressing any unfounded pre-conceptions that university is ‘not for them’ is crucial to this goal.
Responsible to the Director of Aspire to HE and as a collaborative member of the Aspire to HE team, you will manage and oversee key Aspire to HE sponsored projects. In doing so, you will ensure that projects are delivered on time, to budget and make a significant positive impact in ensuring the informed, ambitious decision making of targeted young people.
Demonstrable skills and experience in project management aligned with the ability to provide support and hold service providers to account are essential to this role. You will work closely with key staff in faculties of the University of Wolverhampton and a number of external organisations to oversee delivery of significant and high quality Aspire to HE projects targeted at Aspire to HE cohorts of young people.
The University of Wolverhampton values a diverse workforce and welcomes applications from all sections of the community.
