School Liaison Officer

July 2, 2021

Schools Liaison Coordinator

You will be joining us at an exciting time in our development. We are proud that we adapted quickly during the Covid-19 pandemic, evolving our offer and working hard to ensure we reached the young people who most need our support despite the circumstances. Now, we want to extend our work to all young people who, especially since the pandemic, have fallen further behind and whose stories continue to go unheard – and we need your help.

Speakers Trust works with over 700 schools and 20,000 young people every year, as well as partners and supporters from across the third-sector. You will be part of our central office team, supporting us to manage these relationships and build new ones. The purpose of this role is to recruit schools to participate in our programmes (both face-to-face and digital) and coordinate workshops and events in schools and with other third sector organisations.

In addition, the post holder will be expected to support general office management duties.

The key responsibilities of this role are set out here.  The tasks are not a comprehensive list and other duties may be required as directed by the Line Manager. It is not expected that the post-holder will be doing all of these tasks at once.
