Job description

The Student Life Centre is looking to recruit a part time Student Life Advisor to join a well-established and experienced team.

We are seeking an experienced advice professional with excellent communication skills, who is deeply committed to working with students to actively promote wellbeing, equality of opportunity and support diversity.

You will have significant experience of delivering information, advice and guidance in a professional capacity and a good knowledge of the education sector. You will be confident working with crisis and complex and sensitive issues.  You will need to be passionate about helping others develop life skills, confidence and insight.

For this role it is vital that you are a committed team player who can consistently exercise empathy, kindness and good judgement in all your dealings with others. You will work to follow procedures and care pathways and undertake liaison with other University departments to ensure students’ support needs are appropriately addressed.

As an equal opportunities employer, we welcome applications from all suitably qualified persons, however, as Student Services currently has an under-representation of BAME and LBGTQ staff we would particularly welcome applications from people who are members of these groups. All appointments will be made on merit.

For full details please see the Person Specification and Job Description.

For an informal conversation about this role, please contact Rachel Leah Gould on 01273 678423
