This role supports the establishment of our new Brilliant Tutoring Programme, for which we are currently bidding for funding as part of the Government’s National Tutoring Programme. We will only make final offers for this role if our funding is confirmed, which we will know by the end of October. If like us, you’re passionate about helping students to make up the learning lost as a result of school closures this year, we’d love to hear from you.
In line with government guidelines, we are working from home at the moment. This role will, however, be partially office-based in London, Leeds or Birmingham, when this becomes possible.
The Brilliant Club is an award-winning charity that exists to increase the number of pupils from underrepresented backgrounds progressing to highly-selective universities. We do this by mobilising the PhD community to share its expertise with state schools. We recruit, train and place PhD researchers to work with state schools: either part-time as tutors through The Scholars Programme or full-time as classroom teachers through Researchers in Schools (RIS). In 2018/19, The Brilliant Club worked with over 700 state schools and 13,000 pupils across the UK.
The Brilliant Club is planning to be a provider for the National Tutoring Programme to support the national catch up effort in England following school closures in response to COVID-19 and have submitted a bid to the Education Endowment Fund. If successful, The Brilliant Club is looking to recruit for a School Partnerships Officer role. This new role will work on school partnerships and business development across The Scholars Programme and our new Brilliant Tutoring Programme (BTP). The successful candidate will enable the national team to effectively utilise our CRM (Salesforce) for building school partnerships. They will work closely with the External Affairs department to plan external communications, social media campaigns and website content to support school partnerships. They will project manage the development and delivery of our school partnerships strategy. The role requires a driven and dynamic team player who has experience of success in school partnership management systems. To manage and deliver key responsibilities they will need to be confident using Excel, Salesforce (or other CRM systems). A successful candidate will be detail-orientated, well organised and enjoy solving complex problems. They should enjoy being creative (through written and visual communications) and working collaboratively with designers to produce high-quality materials.
The Brilliant Club exists to increase the number of pupils from underrepresented backgrounds progressing to highly selective universities. We think it is important that our charity reflects the lived experience of our beneficiaries, and we want to be an organisation where employees from any background can thrive. We particularly welcome applications from disabled, Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME), Lesbian, Gay, Bi, Trans including non-binary (LGBTQ+) candidates, and candidates from low-income families. These groups are currently underrepresented at The Brilliant Club and we are committed to increasing representation and diversity at the charity.
