About us

We are Student Support & Wellbeing Services (SSWS), a division that focuses on delivering specialist support, advice and guidance for our students. We also engage staff across the College through advice and training, enabling them to support and correctly signpost students to the most appropriate specialist services at the right time.

Our division is made up of three departments: Advice & Guidance, Counselling & Mental Health Support, and Disability Support & Inclusion.

We are now recruiting six new Faculty Student Wellbeing & Welfare Advisers. These roles will create a new Wellbeing & Welfare team. This new team will sit within our Advice & Guidance Department and report to a new Head of Wellbeing & Welfare. Each advisor will be based in one or more of our faculties working to support their students day to day.

About the role 

This role offers an exciting and significant opportunity to shape and co-create delivery of a new service to support student wellbeing and welfare, and to help embed a culture of continual service improvement.

Faculty Wellbeing & Welfare Advisors will provide an accessible point of contact for students in one or two faculties. For students experiencing challenges or in need of support, advisors will offer professional and pastoral help and guidance, including supporting students who have concerns about their peers. The mechanisms for delivery will include regular office hours and drop-ins and will complement the work of Personal Tutors and Senior Tutors.

Advisors will maintain a knowledge of support services available both centrally and specific to their faculty and be active in ensuring students are appropriately signposted to specialist services in a timely manner. Being a key conduit between central and faculty-based services supporting students, they will also be able to offer guidance to Personal Tutors and Senior Tutors, where students are experiencing difficulties, and to advise and guide staff on signposting to appropriate services.

As well as individual student support and staff guidance, advisors will work as a team to coordinate proactive communication, outreach and programming on student wellbeing and welfare, including working with themes such as mindfulness, stress management, and maintaining healthy physical and psychological balance.

This post will be offered on an indefinite contract.

This is offered as a full-time post but we are happy to talk about part-time, job-share and other flexible working options.
