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. From Autumn 2021 we will have thirty-seven centres and extension projects across England and Scotland, with ambitious plans to scale-up our provision further over the coming years.
At this exciting time in our evolution, the Partnerships Officer will play a key role in ensuring the charity maintains and develops some of its key relationships with universities and independent schools. This role will also be key in creating a multi-year strategic plan of challenge and event fundraising, and increasing event fundraising income.
You will be a confident networker who will enjoy dealing with a wide range of internal and external stakeholders. The role will require excellent interpersonal skills and the capacity to interact with a very wide range of people at all times projecting a positive image of the charity. You’ll be meticulous, organised and work to high standards, with a sharp eye for detail. You’ll also be keen to develop your skills and be proactive in helping us to improve and innovate.
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.
