The Carnegie Trust for the Universities of Scotland wishes to appoint a professional, highly motivated and organised individual who will be responsible for developing and strengthening its support for undergraduates. The post of Undergraduate Student Funding and Engagement Officer will be based at Andrew Carnegie House in Dunfermline with occasional travel across Scotland.
This new role aims to support and administer the Carnegie Trust’s portfolio of grants for undergraduate students in the fifteen Scottish universities, Glasgow School of Art and the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. The post holder will be responsible for the full grant lifecycle of the following funding schemes: Carnegie Undergraduate Tuition Fee Grants; Carnegie Study Support Grants (offered to students in receipt of undergraduate tuition fee funding from the Trust) and Carnegie Undergraduate Vacation Scholarships.
An important aspect of the role will entail extending and maintaining a network of contacts in the student funding, registry and finance departments of Scottish HEIs, finding opportunities for partnerships with relevant stakeholder organisations as well as developing effective resources and methodologies to raise awareness of the Trust’s schemes. In addition, the post holder will be responsible for developing and implementing a framework aimed at increasing engagement with the Carnegie Community of beneficiaries with an emphasis on current students and alumni helping each other and ‘giving back’.
The ideal candidate will have relevant administrative experience – acquired in a University, college, or charitable environment – an understanding of the Scottish higher education sector and an interest in engaging with undergraduates from a broad range of backgrounds. The successful candidate will have excellent communication and interpersonal skills and be required to take initiative and work independently to advance the Trust’s grant making and student engagement activities.
The post is available to suitable candidates who wish to work either full-time or part-time, with a minimum requirement of 25 hours a week. Interviews will be held on 26th March in Dunfermline.
