If you are passionate about shaping the lives of young people, this role is for you!
Nottingham College is one of the largest further education colleges in the country, creating opportunities for employment and progression to higher education for the people of Nottingham and Nottinghamshire; raising their prosperity and that of the local economy.
This is an exciting opportunity for someone to join the rapidly expanding Work Experience Team at Nottingham College. This is a fundamental role that supports our students, helping them to gain crucial work experience and begin their first steps in to their career. During work placements our students gain fundamental employability and self-management skills along with building on their confidence.
This role is employer focused, involving building strong working relationships with local companies and selling the benefits of supporting a young person on work experience. We are looking for a tenacious self-starter, who is dedicated to helping shape the future careers of our students at Nottingham College.
As well as account management there is a cross-college responsibility to work with a counterpart on the learner support side to source the appropriate student for the placements that this role generates. This role has a high level of autonomy and therefore self-management, organisation, reliability and professionalism are key at all times. Strong IT skills are required with a working knowledge of the full Microsoft office suite. Experience within this sector or a sales/account management background is not essential but would be beneficial.
