Greg and Rosie Lock Community, Outreach and Recruitment Fellow in Engineering

£51,799 to £54,943 per annum

3 year fixed-term appointment

Thanks to a generous donation from the Greg and Rosie Lock Foundation, Churchill College seeks to recruit a fixed-term Community, Outreach and Recruitment (CORE) Fellow in Engineering to strengthen the existing academic, outreach and admissions team.

The College is looking to recruit a Fellow with responsibility for the College’s Engineering community, outreach, and recruitment activities. They would liaise with the College’s existing Engineering Alumni, Fellows, graduate students and undergraduates to connect the engineering community, including establishing industrial partnerships and organising events (which may include outside speakers). Additionally, in conjunction with the Senior Tutor and Widening participation team, the CORE Fellow would develop bespoke engineering outreach materials and participate in events within schools. We would also encourage this work to support and complement the University’s Engineering Department’s outreach work. Finally, the CORE Fellow would help with recruitment events both within Churchill College and the wider university, encouraging applicants and assisting talented students through the application process. Initially, this would involve working within our existing Admissions Team but the CORE Fellow would be expected to develop an Engineering specific programme for prospective applicants to Churchill College and the wider University. The CORE Fellow would also be expected to assist in the development of industrial links and partnerships between the College and business, aiming to guide students interested in finding summer projects, year-in-industry placements, and complementary gap year appointments.

At different points in the year, this post involves a variety of human contact and travel to schools and industrial partners. We are hoping to recruit an individual with graduate level experience as well as industrial experience. We are also looking for candidates with very good communication skills as you will be working with schools, colleges, individual would-be applicants and their families. The post-holder may need to travel extensively and will likely have to stay away from Cambridge on a few nights.

This role would suit an outgoing, highly organised engineer with excellent communication, organizational and community-building skills. An understanding of engineering as a profession is essential, as is graduate education or equivalent industrial experience. There is no expectation that the CORE Fellow would deliver teaching within the College, though there may be some teaching opportunities for suitable candidates. There may also be some flexibility in the appointment and if a candidate wished to take this as a 0.8 FTE appointment to be combined with other employment or industrial involvement.

To apply please send an email to Katherine Shirley, HR Manager at hr@chu.cam.ac.uk attaching

Please note that shortlisted candidates will be asked to submit a proposal about how they would seek to develop Engineering with the Churchill Community.

The closing date for applications is 28 October 2021 

Please note referees will be approached prior to an offer of employment being made. Once an offer of employment has been accepted, the successful candidate will be required to undergo a health assessment and pass a basic criminal records (DBS) check.
