These programmes aim to support underrepresented groups at the university, and are designed to retain students and support engagement, success and progression for all.

You will have knowledge of the higher education environment, student engagement mechanisms and have experience of capturing student voices through a variety of successful and meaningful ways. Robust and effective use of evaluation frameworks will also be central to this role. In addition, you will understand the importance and have experience of working in partnership with students and be able to use your excellent ability to communicate to develop relationships across the university. A strong team player, we are looking for a positive, pro-active individual who can be flexible and responsive as well as creative and innovative.

Key Working relationships: Students from across the University, Connectors in co-creation roles, Head of Student Engagement and Enhancement, all academics and professional services within schools, Division of the Student Experience, Student Union, external partners including OFS, NEON and other Universities.
