IntoUniversity Graduate Scheme
Graduate Education Worker Scheme

We’re looking for outstanding graduates, who are creative, innovative, self-motivated and have a passion for the mission of our charity.

Applications for our January 2018 Graduate Scheme intake are now open.

We are looking for high-calibre recent graduates to deliver our widening participation programme to children and young people aged 7-18. Education Workers will be based at one or more of our education centres and will have responsibility for working with their Team Leader to plan and deliver the IntoUniversity programme.

What can you expect?

Our Graduate Trainee Education Workers are based at one of our education centres and will have responsibility for working with their IntoUniversity Centre Leader to plan and deliver the IntoUniversity programme of Academic Support, Mentoring and FOCUS (specially-devised study weeks and days) to children and young people aged 7-18.

The starting salary is £21,000, plus a London contribution of £600 (for staff based in London only). In addition to all UK bank holidays we offer 25 days’ annual leave (plus a discretionary 3 days at Christmas), a generous pension scheme, a loan towards travelcard costs (subject to completion of probationary period) and a comprehensive training programme for which we are seeking accreditation. The initial training period will take place in London.

The role will be fast-paced and challenging. Each day you will be contributing directly to the success of the charity and transforming the fortunes of young people from disadvantaged backgrounds.

Who are we looking for?

You will need to have some paid or voluntary experience working with children and young people, be ambitious to progress within our charity, have excellent written and verbal communication skills, and have passion and enthusiasm for the mission of our charity.

These are graduate-entry posts, ideal for people seeking to gain a broad range of experience in the charity and education sectors. We seek to provide future career opportunities for our employees and as our charity grows there will be clear prospects for Graduate Trainee Education Workers to seek promotion to Senior Education Worker or Centre Leader posts.

You will need to have a genuine passion and enthusiasm for working with young people and be up for leading a class of 30 secondary school students from the front, working with small teams of children and providing occasional one-to-one support.

If you believe that all young people deserve the chance to achieve their potential regardless of their background and want to play a part in helping them succeed, then we would be delighted to hear from you.
