Purpose of the role:The Workers` Educational Association is a unique charity and the UK`s largest voluntary sector provider of adult education. With a clear vision and a strong social purpose, we bring great teaching to local communities, with life-changing courses held in clubs, pubs, workplaces, schools and almost anywhere else you can think of. Since 1903, we have been giving disadvantaged people the opportunity to return to learning - inspiring them to realise their full potential and become active, engaged citizens. We see education as a tool for social justice, not just self-improvement, and we pride ourselves on making learning egalitarian and accessible. Volunteers play a central role in everything we do, from governance through to classroom support, helping us deliver courses to 50,000 people in 2,300 locations - and enabling us to reach 80% of the population.

Providing comprehensive administrative support to our local educational teams, you will enjoy involvement in student recruitment, publicity and marketing, course delivery and policymaking. Depending on your background and interests, you could find yourself specialising in facilities management for a key location, classroom ICT provision, volunteer and member development or regional communications. Wherever you fit in, we`ll give you everything you need to stand out - and make a measurable difference every day.

Our students come from every walk of life, and we want to be as diverse as they are, so we are keen to hear from candidates from minority backgrounds. However, it`s not about where you`ve come from so much as what you can contribute: we need someone with great organisational and event management skills, a strong administrative background and the highest standard of IT literacy. Needless to say, you will be self-motivated, team-spirited and very flexible, and you will share our passion for education as a tool of transformation.

To apply for this role, please submit your CV together with a covering letter showing how you meet the essential and desirable criteria within the person specification.

Please note this is a fixed term position until 31 July 2020.
