Uppingham School is a registered charity that relies on philanthropic income to support pupils from all backgrounds to study here through the Bursaries Programme. The Outreach Manager will create partnerships between Uppingham School and community figureheads, philanthropists, charities, community groups, and statutory funded projects who support or represent underserved communities within 20 miles of the School.

Excellent communication and customer service skills and the proven ability to develop relationships with a diverse range of individuals is equally important.
