Role Description

Could you help University of York students discover their strengths?

York Strengths is a sector-leading professional development programme designed specifically for York students. York Strengths helps our students gain further clarity on their personal strengths and how they can apply them in future careers.

The Careers and Placements unit at the University of York is seeking to engage experienced professionals to act as observers as part of the institution’s innovative York Strengths Programme.  You will help to deliver a series of one day assessment centre style events to our first year students, equipping them with a greater sense of where their potential work related strengths lie.

Working with groups of up to six students you will:

  • Launch and manage the timings of the component exercises
  • Observe and record significant behaviours over the course of the day's exercises
  • Record your observations and prepare around five minutes of individualised feedback for each student on a one-to-one basis

You will have some experience of line management and in developing people. Familiarity with selection techniques and assessment centres would be an advantage as would be an appreciation of trends in the current graduate labour market.

The York Strengths assessment days will take place on the 17 and 24 Feb, 3 March and from 4 - 23 June (Monday - Saturday). We are looking for Observers who can ideally join us for 10 to 20 days including Saturdays.

The University of York is committed to promoting equality and diversity
