Graduate Project Officer – Mansfield and Ashfield Development Programme

In the role of Graduate Project Officer – Mansfield and Ashfield Development Programme, you will be required to generate innovative ideas contributing towards the regeneration and transformation of the local area.

Department: Directorate
Location: City Campus
Salary: £23,500 p.a.

An exciting opportunity presents itself for two Graduate Project Officers within the Directorate, working on the Mansfield and Ashfield Development Programme. This role will require you to work within a small team focused on the Mansfield and Ashfield programme of work, whilst liaising with internal departments and external stakeholders. The role is to support in the delivery of a programme of work and contribute to the overarching goal of regenerating the Mansfield and Ashfield area.

The successful candidate will enjoy working in unfamiliar contexts, consistently adapting to the changing demands and scope of the project. The ideal candidate will be self-sufficient, able to manage their own workload whilst supporting in extra tasks, and be highly motivated. Whilst not essential, candidates who have a keen interest in and passion for the Mansfield and Ashfield areas will be beneficial.

In this role you will be required to generate innovative ideas contributing towards the regeneration and transformation of the local area. You will also be asked to contribute to a variety of streams of work, including supporting in administrative tasks, planning and delivery, both with internal and external stakeholders. This ensures that you will need to have strong communication and networking skills.

The majority of the role will be based in Mansfield; however, the role entails some travel to University sites and other local areas.

This role is part of NTU’s Graduate Development Programme, offering you an extensive range of development opportunities. The programme is personalised and tailored to your skill set to help you:

  • improve your workplace skills
  • advance your leadership skills
  • build your confidence
  • provide you with employment experience.

Please refer to the job description and person specification when completing your application to demonstrate how you meet the requirements for the role.

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-European Economic Area (EEA) candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the University is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the Resident Labour Market Test.

UK Visas and Immigration, part of the Home Office, requires employers to complete this test to show that no suitably qualified EEA or EU worker can fill the post.
