The University of Kent hosts the Higher Education Access Tracker Service (HEAT), which provides a member-based service supporting the targeting, monitoring and evaluation of activities delivered by more than 100 providers of higher education (HE) across the country. 

We are looking for a confident communicator with experience of project work to join our HEAT Service team to coordinate engagement activity with our members. 

You’ll be delivering communication campaigns and webinars, developing website content and evaluating the impact of activities on member engagement, as well as assisting smaller organisations to join the Service.

  • preparing and delivering standard and bespoke training sessions to member organisations on HEAT database functionality and wider strategic service

What you will bring to the role:

  • experience of project work and of providing excellent customer service
  • an ability to convey complex information effectively and to build good working relationships with a range of people with differing needs
  • good organisation skills and meticulous attention to detail

What we can offer you in return:

  • a friendly, open and collaborative working environment and support in your development and wellbeing 
  • if campus-based, hybrid working options allowing a flexible blend of office and home working (to be agreed in line with business needs)
  • 43 days' leave per year (personal leave, bank holidays and additional days allocated for the Christmas period, pro rata for part-time staff)
  • an excellent pension scheme with generous employer contributions
