About the role

University Access Officers manage the day-to-day running of the programme in The Access Project’s partner schools. They work closely with students, staff at all levels, tutors, and with the rest of The Access Project’s team to ensure that the delivery of the programme is optimised. The programme has been carefully designed with the intention that all interactions have a positive impact on a student’s chances of getting into a top university. It is the responsibility of the University Access Officer to deliver all the activities which make up our programme. This includes managing tutor and student pairings as well as delivering and recording in-school activities.

Successful candidates will have the opportunity to work on the front line of addressing educational disadvantage, as well as benefiting from opportunities to become involved in the wider work of The Access Project as it continues to expand.

This is a challenging role, which involves a high level of organisation. It is well-suited to resilient individuals looking to pursue a career in education and/or the social enterprise/charity sectors. UAOs are the sole representative of The Access Project in school and therefore must be comfortable working alone (although they will build relationships and work closely with school staff).

All University Access Officers are line managed by a Programme Manager from The Access Project, who visits the school once per week for line management meetings, as well as being available via email and phone. Each school also nominates a Programme Supervisor, who focuses on the performance of their in-school programme.
