The Social Programme Coordinator will manage a team of College Mentors to deliver a vibrant, high-quality and smoothly-run programme of activities and events. A high level of communication, delegation and organisational skills is essential, as is experience working with, and supporting young people.

The Welfare Coordinator will liaise with staff and the Oxford College Principal through daily meetings, communicating with parents over issues of welfare, take a key role at all meal times, and look after all issues of student welfare including offsite medical appointments, and general support in the summer school office.
