A Couple of Job Opportunities

posted on November 23rd 2016 in jobs & Mangorolla with 0 Comments

We have two vacancies at Mangorolla that will be very interesting and, indeed, exciting to the right sort of geek.

Widening Participation is a crucial part of what we do. We can reach the students that don’t often get reached. We can provide them with a diversity of engagement experience that isn’t often on offer. Already nearly 30% of students participating in I’m a Scientist and I’m an Engineer are from a WP or geographically remote school. We need to increase that proportion and work with university widening participation teams to help them reach these students. So if you, like us, believe that all children should have equality of opportunity and that the location of their school should not reduce the chances of inspiration and engagement, then you will be interesting in the Widening Participation Project Wrangler role.

TL;DR:

We’re leaders in online science schools engagement with a passion for reaching the schools missed by others. Our projects help students aspire to attend higher education. Our projects reach the schools that HEI can’t. Your role will be to ensure we are reaching more WP students and working with HEI WP teams to help them deliver on their objectives. In addition you will project manage other elements of the Mangorolla portfolio. Pay £27k. – £33k.pa. Based in Bath – immediate start. Email CV and letter to shane@mangorol.la.

Understanding what we do and the impact it has on others is critical to our projects. It helps us improve them, it helps teachers and scientists use them more effectively and it helps us find funding for the projects.  We are evaluation geeks. We publish everything we find out – check out our evaluation posts on I’m a Scientist. We need to step up to a new level though. We want someone who is equally fascinated by Science Capital, by the role that scientists and engineers play in forming young people’s views and by differences between online and offline engagement. And if you are good at it too, have a look at the part-time evaluation wrangler role.

TL;DR:

We love evaluation. We need to do more and do it better. We need an in-house evaluator to help devise and implement a strategy. It’s hands on. You’ll be doing the evaluation not managing contractors – from design to reporting. We’re leaders in online science schools engagement with a passion for reaching the schools missed by others. You’ll work across our portfolio of projects including I’m a Scientist and I’m an Engineer and assist on the international projects. Pay from £27k. – £33k. pro-rata – 8 days per month. Based in Bath or remotely – immediate start. Email CV and letter to shane@mangorol.la.

Feel free to call/email me or someone else in the team about the jobs.
