Churchill College seeks to recruit a Widening Participation Officer to strengthen the existing Admissions team.
Churchill is one of the thirty-one Colleges of the University of Cambridge. It was founded in 1958 as the national and Commonwealth memorial to Sir Winston Churchill. Situated just outside the city centre on a superb 42-acre site, it is an academic community of c. 490 undergraduates, 300 graduate students and 140 Fellows. Its foundation specified a particular mission in mathematics, science and technology but it also has many students in the arts and humanities, and academic performance is outstanding across the board. Its student body is notably diverse, including a high proportion of students from UK state schools and colleges, and from under-represented backgrounds.
The position involves three primary duties, all of which will be completed under the direction of the Senior Tutor and in co-operation with the Admissions Tutors and Admissions Officer. The first is to build and maintain the College’s links with schools and colleges with a view to recruiting high-quality undergraduate students, especially from among under-represented groups. The second is to assist with the administration of the undergraduate admissions process and the admission of new students. The third is to lead the development of digital recruitment material to be deployed via social media and the internet. At different points in the year this post involves both a good deal of routine administration and a great variety of human contact and travel. Close liaison with academic and non-academic colleagues in Churchill and Cambridge is required, as well as very good communication with schools and colleges, and with individual would-be applicants and their families. The postholder will need to travel extensively and is likely to have to stay away from Cambridge on a number of nights.
It might appropriately be filled by an outgoing, highly organised and capable graduate with excellent administrative, IT and communication skills. The hours of work may make it especially appropriate to someone whose personal situation makes time off during school holidays an advantage. An understanding of university admissions, ideally but not exclusively in Cambridge, and possession of a current driving licence, are highly desirable.
The closing date for applications is 1 February 2018. Interviews will be held on Wednesday 7 or Thursday 8 February.
