The Brilliant Club is an award-winning charity that exists to increase the number of pupils from underrepresented backgrounds progressing to highly-selective universities. We do this by mobilising the PhD community to share its expertise with state schools. We recruit, train and place PhD researchers to work with state schools: either part-time as tutors through The Scholars Programme and the Brilliant Tutoring Programme and full-time as classroom teachers through Researchers in Schools (RIS). In 2018/19, The Brilliant Club worked with over 700 state schools and 13,000 pupils across the UK.
We are looking for someone with drive and determination to join our School Partnerships team. Your job will be to raise awareness of our programmes and transform expressions of interest into school partnerships. If you are passionate about communicating with different audiences, quickly building relationships and meeting challenging targets that have a huge social impact, this could be the perfect role for you. This role will require you to quickly become an expert on our Scholars Programme and Brilliant Tutoring Programme so you can confidently discuss its features and benefits with key stakeholders. You will become comfortable in winning the confidence of head teachers and senior school leaders of prospective schools who have expressed an interest in partnering with us. This isn’t just about administering a process; it’s about understanding the needs of individual schools and how our programmes can support their priorities. You will be tenacious and empathetic in equal measure. You will be working alongside a growing school partnerships team, supporting the work of the delivery teams across the England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. Working closely alongside the Head of School Partnerships you will aim to build on the strength of over 800 school partnerships and grow our presence in line with our strategic and mission led goals.
