This is an exciting time for the Access and Outreach team as we expand to support the University's renewed focus on widening access, building on our founding principles of social purpose, equality, diversity and inclusion.

In this new role, you will support the development and delivery of programmes, events and activities both locally and across the UK, to support widening participation in higher education and at the University of York. This will involve the delivery of existing programmes and the development of new innovative initiatives that meet the objectives set out in the University vision, our Access and Outreach strategy and our Access and Participation Plan. You will have the opportunity to contribute new ideas and gain significant experience in impactful access and outreach work.

Your particular focus will be on project coordination including the initiation of new pilot projects including market analysis, audience testing and proposal development. You will be key to the delivery of our evaluation strategy, ensuring good data collection methods. You will also work closely with senior leaders to facilitate rapid improvement to the systems and processes that underpin our work.

We expect to appoint at £25,941 which is on grade 5 of the University’s salary scales ( £25,941 - £30,942)

Interviews will be held on Tuesday 28th July

We have a strong commitment to equality and diversity across all areas of the University community, both in our people and the services we provide to staff and students.
