The Higher Education Progression Partnership South Yorkshire Plus (HEPPSY+) is part of the National Collaborative Outreach Programme, a government funded widening participation initiative to work with a wide range of external partners and young people to improve progression to higher education from socially disadvantaged areas in the Sheffield City Region.

HEPPSY+ and partners have an excellent reputation for delivering high quality outreach and widening participation activities.

This is a great opportunity to be part of a dedicated team working on an initiative that will make a real difference, ensuring that significantly more people in the region progress into higher education, and improving the lives of young people from underprivileged backgrounds.

You will:

  • provide administrative support to the HEPPSY+ team
  • provide administrative support for events and preparation of materials, stakeholder management, data input and maintenance, general office administration duties and some meeting support

You will have excellent communication, interpersonal and organisational skills, a positive and flexible approach, and be able to work independently and as part of a team. You will need to be able to demonstrate excellent team working and communication skills and a strong stakeholder focus. Experience of working proactively in an administrative environment is essential for the role.

Working within a small project team, there will be opportunities to contribute to the further development of the partnership.

Our aim is to increase the number and proportion of students progressing into higher education from across the Sheffield City Region

We strongly believe that higher education should be an option for anyone who aspires to go and we want to ensure that all students have the knowledge and confidence to progress into higher education regardless of their background, gender or ethnicity.

What better way to do this than to provide students from our region's schools with relatable role models and real life examples that individuals from similar backgrounds can progress and succeed in higher education and beyond! You could be an integral part of a team that inspires the next generation to progress into higher education.

For non-EU applicants, we won't be able to provide a certificate of sponsorship / visa for this job.

We particularly welcome applicants from underrepresented groups

Sheffield Hallam welcomes applications from all candidates irrespective of age, pregnancy and maternity, disability, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, race, religion or belief, or marital or civil partnership status
