This is an exciting opportunity for a highly motivated and enthusiastic individual to join our busy Engagement team. Working as part of the Brand and Communications Directorate, you will develop, encourage and maintain close working relationships with schools, parents, communities, local authorities and other stakeholders. You will create and deliver sessions/workshops in classrooms to school pupils, college students and community groups; topics will range from a recruitment-based focus on careers, apprenticeships and college options to sensitive subjects such as sexual health, drugs misuse and online grooming, so you must be comfortable delivering these sessions to young people in particular.
You should have the ability to work with both young people and adults, to help and advise them regarding further education opportunities and choices. You will assist with the development and maintenance of a broad range of internal and external activities and services to promote the college and further education options including: taster sessions, career events, open evenings and community events.
You must be able to drive and have access to a vehicle as the role requires you to undertake substantial travel across Derbyshire. In addition, you will need to be highly flexible as there is an element of working outside of normal office hours (evenings and occasional weekends). Experience in a classroom environment, with the ability to deliver sessions on a wide range of topics (including sexual health, drugs misuse etc.) is vital. You will be engaging with Year 9, 10 and 11 pupils in schools, in the college, online and at events.
