Current Vacancies

Multiply Coordinator

We currently have a very exciting opportunity for a Multiply Coordinator to join our existing Adult Learning team.

Multiply is a new three-year government-funded programme to help adults across the UK to improve their numeracy skills. The ‘Multiply’ scheme allows for a more flexible and innovative approach to be used where it is most needed, enabling adults across the country to take that first essential step on the ladder towards qualifications, jobs, and a wealth of other opportunities.

As the coordinator you will lead the project, engaging with Buckinghamshire residents, communities and employers to raise awareness of this programme and working with Adult Learning, community groups and subcontractors to develop workshops and courses to recognise the role that basic numeracy plays in supporting individuals’ everyday life, and to boost number confidence and provide the skills to help unlock new job opportunities or progression at work.

This role is initially a fixed-term role until end March 2023, with the intention to extend through 2024 to March 2025 for the duration of the Multiply project.
