We are excited to be recruiting a Programme Coordinator to join The Scholars Programme. In our 'Join The Club’ strategy we have set out our ambition for university access, focusing on the two goals: working with more pupils than ever before and extending our support across the student journey; this will only be successfully delivered by working together with our key stakeholders. Ensuring that we continually deliver high quality placements to schools while the programme grows is key to this strategy. The role of Programme Coordinator will be crucial to support the delivery of The Scholars Programme and ensure the best possible pupil outcomes by providing excellent team support.
There are currently two Programme Coordinator roles within the Programme Management team. They work closely together to support the team, helping to ensure all strategic priorities are effectively delivered and that schools and tutors received a high-quality service. This role will lead on several administrative processes and will include regular document creation, data input and management, liaising with stakeholders and supporting Scholars Programme events.
The role requires a driven and dynamic team player, with excellent organisational skills. The successful candidate will champion the charity’s values and embody them in interactions with colleagues and partners.
This is a great opportunity to join The Brilliant Club team as we become the UK’s largest university access movement. We are looking forward to meeting great candidates who are excited to join us as we help more young people progress to university and thrive when they get there.
We think it is important that our charity reflects the lived experience of our beneficiaries, and we want to be an organisation where employees from any background can thrive. We particularly welcome applications from disabled, Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME), Lesbian, Gay, Bi, Trans including non-binary (LGBTQ+) candidates, and candidates from low-income families. These groups are currently underrepresented at The Brilliant Club, and we are committed to increasing representation and diversity at the charity.
