Job description

We’re an award-winning charity that runs local learning centres in the heart of communities where the young people we support live. Our centres provide an innovative education programme which includes practical learning support and motivational and confidence-building activities for children and young people aged 7-18. Our aim is to inspire students from the least advantaged neighbourhoods to broaden their horizons and achieve their full potential.

As the UK’s leading university access organisation, our staff team is helping thousands of young people each year to achieve their potential. We have thirty-five centres and extension projects across England and Scotland, with ambitious plans to scale-up our provision further over the coming years.

We are looking for people who will be committed to helping us to change the lives of young people by taking up permanent roles as Education Workers on IntoUniversity’s Graduate Scheme. We believe that our Graduate Scheme is one of the most exciting in the charity sector, providing exceptional training and experience, and the opportunity to work with young people and colleagues who will challenge and inspire you.

As a charity with social mobility as its core objective, IntoUniversity is wholly committed to equality of opportunity. We work with children and young people from a diverse range of backgrounds, and we believe that our staff team should be similarly diverse and representative. The more inclusive we are, the better our work will be, and we recognise that we have much more to do in this regard. We are committed to building a culture where students, staff and volunteers are valued for the unique people they are. We therefore encourage applications from candidates from as wide a range as possible of ethnic, cultural and social backgrounds. In particular, we actively and warmly welcome applications from Black, Asian and minority ethnic candidates, male candidates and candidates with a disability as they are currently under-represented within IntoUniversity.

If you believe that all young people deserve the chance to develop their talents regardless of their background and want to play a part in helping them succeed, then we would be delighted to hear from you.

IntoUniversity Insight Session

We are offering an online insight session on Friday 1st October at 2:30pm to provide an insight into the graduate scheme for some groups who are currently under-represented in IntoUniversity's staff team. Candidates will be able to find out more about the charity, its values and work culture. There will also be the opportunity to hear from current IntoUniversity staff members who have participated in the graduate scheme. Please visit the Graduate Scheme pages on our website for full details, including the eligibility criteria and the link to sign up to the session.
