This is a very diverse role, where you will work within a busy environment and liaise with lots of different staff and stakeholders with the student at the heart of the role.

We are looking for someone who is passionate about student’s achieving their potential and putting the facilities and support in place to make sure we prepare our students not only for life at the FRA, but the world beyond. You should be a positive individual with a focus on building and developing relationships, experience of supporting young people and working with a range of stakeholders in a pastoral and student support setting.  The ability to be creative and to think out of the box will be essential to success in this role.
