Schools and Colleges Engagement Co-ordinator, Health & Social Care
Directorate of Corporate Affairs
Professional & Business Support
Grade 5 - £22,659 to £26,243 dependent on experience (fixed term until 31/07/19)
The UK Recruitment Team plays a significant role in delivering the Sheffield Hallam University's student recruitment strategy by providing aspiration and awareness raising events, activities and initiatives which support the institution's recruitment objectives. This includes organising the delivery of institutional recruitment events and activities; establishing and building effective relationships and delivering engagement activity to potential applicants at feeder Schools and Colleges; and supporting the institution's commitment to delivering against Widening Participation agendas.
You will be working as part of a dedicated team of School and College Engagement Co-ordinators, responsible for establishing and developing mutually beneficial relationships with feeder school, colleges and/or partner organisations - both within the Sheffield City Region and within wider allocated geographic regions. You will be required to develop and deliver exciting and innovative engagement activities that meet the needs of local schools, colleges and partner organisations whilst supporting the University's recruitment objectives.
Please note: You do not need to be from a Health and Social Care background or have experience within the sector to be considered for this role. This role, developed due to the recent changes within NHS recruitment, includes building key relationships with Trusts and Health and Social Care providers and supporting potential applicants interested in the Health and Social Care sector.
Successful candidates will be able to demonstrate an understanding of the higher education sector, and share a commitment to raising the aspirations, awareness and highlight the opportunities available at university to potential applicants and to key influencers. You will possess excellent communication skills and are confident speaking to potentially large groups of pre-university students; and are equally comfortable liaising with staff from schools, colleges and partner organisations.
You will also be able to work occasional evenings and to independently travel around the country as required - you will be provided with a hire car to fulfil the requirements of the role which will require occasionally driving at night and on motorways.
Please note - all applicants are required to complete and upload the Supporting Statement document below
If you are offered this post you will be subject to an enhanced check by the Disclosure and Barring Service.
