The selection process
We are delighted that our centres are reopening in line with government guidelines.

Nevertheless, we recognise that the circumstances may change and bring additional challenges for how we recruit and train new staff. The structure and timeline of the selection process, start date and training programme are therefore subject to change. We’ll keep you updated during the selection process.

The first stage is to complete our online application form here.

Please ensure that you submit your application before 9am on Monday 10th May 2021.

If you successfully pass through the first stage of shortlisting, we will be in touch with you with details of a very short video presentation for you to complete, to help us with the second stage of shortlisting.

Applicants who are shortlisted will be invited to one of our online selection days. All those invited will participate in a series of group and individual activities. Candidates who most clearly demonstrate the right qualities for our graduate scheme will then be asked to return for an online panel interview during the following week. You can read about the qualities that we’re looking for on the following pages of this job description.

Please note that in line with our Safer Recruitment practices, successful candidates will be subject to an enhanced DBS check (for English centres) or a PVG scheme membership check (for Scottish centres) if selected for this role. The charity's policy on the recruitment of ex-offenders can be found here, and you can find full details of DBS’s code of practice here and Disclosure Scotland’s code of practice here.


Accessibility and Adjustments

We are committed to providing reasonable adjustments through our recruitment process. Please see our Accessibility FAQs page here for further information.

We also recognise that during the current crisis, some applicants may not have access to a computer to complete the online application form. If that’s the case for you, please do get in touch with us on or call 020 7243 0242 to speak to our HR team, and we’ll work with you to receive your application in another format.

Diversity and Inclusion

As a charity with social mobility as its core objective, IntoUniversity is wholly committed to equality of opportunity. We work with children and young people from a diverse range of backgrounds, and we believe that our staff team should be similarly diverse and representative. The more inclusive we are, the better our work will be, and we recognise that we have much more to do in this regard.

We are committed to building a culture where students, staff and volunteers are valued for the unique people they are. We therefore encourage applications from candidates from as wide a range as possible of ethnic, cultural and social backgrounds. In particular, we actively and warmly welcome applications from Black, Asian and minority ethnic candidates, male candidates and candidates with a disability as they are currently under-represented within IntoUniversity.
