Want to help people with learning opportunities, job prospects or feel connected with their community? This role is at the centre of our Community and Continuing Education Service. You will be helping adult learners with their enquiries about courses and opportunities, maintaining a reception service, ensuring learner data is kept up-to-date and liaising with tutors and visitors to the Open Learning Centre.
We’re proud of our community. The care we give. The services we provide. The spaces we create. But we’re always looking to do more. Which is why we give our people the time, support and resources they need not only to do their job well, but also to help define the way we do things more broadly. There’ll always be room for your ideas here. This is about taking ownership. And having the opportunity to learn, develop and progress. Together, we make big things happen (the Lexicon is just one example). But we’re also focused on the smaller things that make all the difference. And that’s as true for our employees as it is for our residents. So we have a car park with plenty of spaces (you won’t need to worry about where you’re going to park – which means more time to focus on your work). We have strong teams and excellent manager relationships. Expert advice is there whenever you need it. Put simply, a career with us means having everything you need to build on your skills. To build better relationships. To build even better communities. This is your chance to make a lasting impact
We help people through learning opportunities. Whether that is helping them move in, or closer to, work or volunteering, improve their physical or mental well-being or simply strengthen their connection to our communities, we’re here to help. We provide a friendly and flexible environment at our Open Learning Centre, where we welcome people to collaborate and learn.
Because we’re Bracknell Forest.
