Job description:

The Role

As a member of SHWS, you will report to the Student Wellbeing Adviser Team Manager, under the day-to-day direction of School colleagues. You will work collaboratively with central SHWS colleagues (e.g. Disability Practitioners, Wellbeing Consultancy, Counsellors) and a wide range of School colleagues (e.g. the Director of Education, Senior and Personal Tutors, Degree Programme Directors and Professional Support colleagues), to provide a local, comprehensive and professional point of contact for both incoming and registered students who need advice and assistance with health and wellbeing concerns, either from transition to higher education or during progression through study.

As a Student Wellbeing Adviser, you will act as an initial point of contact for students and colleagues within your designated School and as such will play a vital role in connecting central Student Health and Wellbeing Services with the wider University community.

You will offer confidential support and signposting for students experiencing any wellbeing related issue, and, when appropriate, a ‘follow-up' service to ensure suitable support and advice is being provided and acted upon, ensuring that students have the optimum opportunity to fulfil their potential and gain the best experience from their time at university.

You will also offer guidance to School based colleagues on matters relating to student wellbeing and you will collaborate closely with colleagues to deliver proactive activities and events to support students with improving and maintaining their wellbeing.

Please note we have two positions available. One full time (37 hours) position to start asap, and one part-time position (29.6 hours) position to start on 1st August 2024.

A Disclosure and Barring Service Check is needed for this role.

Interviews will likely take place on 29th/30th May. Candidates wishing to discuss the post may contact Nicky Cooney, Student Wellbeing Adviser Team Manager, on [email protected]
