This vacancy is only open to those currently employed by the University.

Student Wellbeing is an area of vital importance to student life: providing information and guidance on how to proactively maintain physical and mental health & wellbeing to make the most of the student experience. This varied and interesting maternity-cover role is a great opportunity to start working within this area. It involves:

  • Working in partnership with key members of Student Experience and Students’ Union staff to design and ensure the effective delivery of an innovative programme of activity across the academic year to promote student health and wellbeing.
  • Managing teams of volunteers and providing Comms and administrative support to the Wellbeing Manager – it’s also a great opportunity to gain valuable experience and training.

You’ll have:

  • Great organisational skills and be able to run both recruitment and promotional campaigns on a variety of media.
  • Excellent communication skills and an ability to work independently and with initiative are essential.
  • An interest and some experience in wellbeing issues such as mental health, substance dependency, sexual health, sexual violence/harassment and equality issues are highly desirable although there will be some opportunity for training.
  • A keen eye for detail is also essential to help maintain our constantly changing website and to help us deliver a high-quality service.
