We have an exciting opportunity to join AoC as Research Officer
The Association of Colleges is seeking a Research Officer to support its research and lobbying functions. The purpose of this post is to support the research, policy and senior management teams. It is an exciting opportunity for a highly numerate, literate individual able to work independently and as part of a team. An ability to analyse and handle quantitative datasets will be essential, including a proficiency in using Excel, as well as other data analysis software. The successful candidate will also need to be able to carry out and analyse large-scale online surveys, using relevant software to this end.
The person to take on this role will need to have a good understanding of the role of colleges and be able to show evidence through research, internal and external, to allow us to articulate and deliver outcomes so we can better engage with policy makers and influence government policy and ultimately improve the education sector.
Some travel will be expected to attend meetings either in London or at college locations across England, which may include overnight stays.
AoC has a culture of high performance and commitment, and we expect and get a lot from our staff. We offer trust and autonomy in a highly flexible working environment with a great package of rewards that includes a generous holiday entitlement, final salary pension scheme, opportunities for professional development including sponsorship of professional qualifications. We also know that our passion for the further education sector, and our focus on enabling colleges to help people realise their talents and ambitions, act as a great motivator for working at AoC.
