Programme Officer, South of England
The Scholars Programme is excited to be recruiting for a Programme Officer role, to be based in London to support the programme across the South of England. As a member of The Scholars Programme Team, this role will play an important part in delivering The Brilliant Club’s Path to Outcomes strategy, managing programme delivery in their region. They will manage a cluster of placements, working with teachers and university widening participation staff to arrange programme logistics, and managing a team of PhD tutors to design and deliver their courses in schools. This role will include frequent travel across the UK, which may involve early starts, late finishes, overnight stays and occasional weekend working. Full expenses are paid for work away from the main office, and time off in lieu is given in line with the charity’s HR policy.
The role requires a driven and dynamic team player, with experience of success in school teaching, academia or programme management. To manage their placements, they will deliver aspects of our provision directly (e.g. PhD tutor training, university trips) and will support PhD tutors to deliver others (e.g. course design, in-school tutorials). They will build and maintain excellent relationships with teachers and university staff, which underpin The Brilliant Club’s collaborative model.
The successful candidate will champion the charity’s values and embody them in interactions with colleagues and partners. They will be comfortable in building relationships with a wide range of stakeholders and managing logistics through our online CRM system. They will co-ordinate programme activities, track progress and deliver results. They will be positive and proactive, with a commitment to delivering excellent standards.
We think this is a great opportunity to join The Scholars Programme at a time when the charity is expanding its provision across the UK and growing its capacity to deliver outcomes for pupils. We look forward to receiving applications from candidates who meet the job requirements and who are committed to the charity’s mission.
