About The Access Project ("TAP"):
The Access Project is a groundbreaking charity that helps students from disadvantaged backgrounds win places at top universities. This is an issue that matters: at present the most affluent young people are 7 times more likely to attend a highly selective university than their less privileged peers. Unsurprisingly this is a significant factor in the decline in social mobility in the UK in recent years, and we are working to fix it.
The main way we address this issue is by helping students from less affluent backgrounds to achieve better grades: we match our students with a volunteer graduate who tutors them for an hour a week. We also have a team of talented University Access Officers who work directly in schools to deliver university support that enables our students to progress to competitive universities.
The Access Project is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and will expect the University Access Officer to share this commitment.
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. They enjoy a significant degree of autonomy. They may also take responsibility for managing senior stakeholders at our corporate partners.
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 is well-suited to resilient individuals looking to pursue a career in education and/or the social enterprise/charity sectors.
