Merton College is looking for an enthusiastic, effective communicator with a passion for outreach to join us as our Schools Liaison and Access Officer.

We offer an excellent benefits package, including:
- membership of the OSPS pension scheme;
- 38 days' holiday including Bank Holidays;
- private medical cover;
- free lunch in Hall; and
- car parking.
The College will pay for membership of the relevant professional body, HELOA (Higher Education Liaison Officers’ Association).
