One year internship starting April 2018

We are looking for a bright, enthusiastic and extremely well organised recent graduate to help support our current Head of Harris Experience with running the Harris Experience and Harris Experience Advanced most able programmes as a one-year internship.

The Harris Experience is a well-established Russell Group application programme spanning five years, from Year 9 to Year 13. This cultural and academic programme aims to support our most able students across the federation in gaining places at the very best universities. The programme is embedded into all of our secondary schools (currently 22) and sixth forms (currently 18), beginning in Year 9 and going through to Year 13.  

What we are looking for:

This job would suit a recent graduate with a strong interest in education and events management. We are looking for someone with a minimum of a 2:1 in any academic degree. The right candidate will have an absolute commitment to transforming the lives of young people and have a strong interest in Higher Education and current academic events.

It is highly desirable that applicants have attended a Russell Group university so that they have the necessary experience for the role. Candidates should also have a strong interest in the potential of university education for young people and be knowledgeable about all Russell Group universities, including Oxford and Cambridge.

Details of the programmes can be found on at www.harrisfederation.org.uk/64/harris-experience

This role will be based at the Harris Federation head office near East Croydon station; however, much of your time will be spent visiting our academies in and around London.

Why work for the Harris Federation?

  • A supportive and inspiring team 
  • The opportunity to be part of a Federation that is giving children the freedom and opportunities to choose their own futures
  • Outstanding personal and professional development opportunities
  • Generous benefits and rewards package
