This is an exciting time to join London South East Colleges. Following a number of mergers we are now one of the largest and fastest growing Colleges in London. As a result we have a number of new positions available across the College.

We are currently recruiting for a Work Experience Advisor who will play an important role in ensuring students have the opportunity to gain a high quality work experience placement and work related experience.

The role will involve liaising closely with employers to source placements, with students and curriculum staff to match placements suited to their aspirations and course requirements. The suitable candidate will provide an excellent learning experience to ensure students and employers are suitably prepared for work experience and will co-ordinate and monitor their progress.

The ideal candidate will have an understanding of further education and preferably some experience of working in a college environment. The candidate must hold an Assessor qualification, or have a strong background within Care. Previous experience of working with employers would be desirable.

To be successful in this role, you'll need to have excellent interpersonal and communication skills and be able to effectively liaise with employers and other external stakeholders to source new placements and build new relationships. You'll also have exceptional organisational skills combined with good IT knowledge and sound administration skills.

As the College supports a number of children and vulnerable adults, all staff are exempt from Section 4(2) of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974. Accordingly, most staff will be subject to either a 'Standard' or' Enhanced' DBS (formerly CRB) check.

Closing Date: 26 July 2017
