You will be required to work closely with school staff to ensure targeted provision is relevant and successfully delivered, monitored and evaluated.

The role also requires the Project Officer to liaise with other HE and FE providers in the consortium.

The successful candidate will have the following skills:

•Creative approach to problem solving

•Adaptable and flexible attitude to work

•Ability to work well in a team environment and independently

• Excellent communication skills and an ability to interact with a wide range of people.

The role will require you to embed the college’s values; working with Professionalism, taking Responsibility for your actions, and giving Respect to clients and colleagues alike.
