Hired@UCB provides careers, employability and placement services to our students based upon 6 key themes: GET Started, GET Skilled, GET Experience, GET Hired, GET Enterprising and GET On. We currently have a vacancy for an Employability Tutor (Placements).

The role of the Employability Tutor is to support students undertaking courses which contain either a compulsory or optional placement element to gain valuable work experience and employability skills. Focusing particularly on the health and social care sector you will organise placements, mentor students on placement, provide CV assistance, maintain databases, support with open days and effectively promote the University through a variety of mediums. You will also develop strong links with UCB Schools and Departments regarding the service as well as engage directly with employers to source and develop partnership and placement opportunities.

The successful candidate will have knowledge of the health and social care sector through either experience or qualification, in addition to experience in a client-facing role. You will have excellent communication and organisation skills, the ability to work with a diverse range of clients, and proficiency in administration and the use of IT. In order to be successful in this application, you will possess a minimum level 4 qualification, preferably in a field relevant to the post.

Flexibility and a willingness to conduct placement visits off-site as required are essential. This role is intended as a job share arrangement, whereby both parties will work 21 hours per week, over 40 weeks per year (based around student attendance weeks).

University College Birmingham strongly encourages its staff to engage in continuous professional development in order to maintain skills and standards. Full support will be provided to the post-holder in respect of professional updating. Should we appoint a candidate who does not yet hold a level 5 qualification, it is expected that the post-holder will work towards a suitable qualification within an agreed timeframe.

Note for applicants:

All applicants for employment at the University will be expected to demonstrate an understanding of the principles of Safeguarding and the PREVENT agenda in the context of further and higher education.

Closing date: Monday 1 October 2018 at noon
