Kings College London
The university is creating a cross-institutional, faculty-based student support and wellbeing team, organised on a ‘hub and spoke’ basis with faculty-based staff who are supported and coordinated by specialist teams in Student Support & Wellbeing Services.
The Head of Student Wellbeing and Welfare will lead on establishing and strategically delivering a new service of high-quality support to students alongside a wide network of university colleagues. This includes the management of the team of wellbeing and welfare advisers based centrally and in faculty.
The purpose of the team is to triage on a variety of presenting issues, including wellbeing & welfare concerns, mental health support, fitness to study and fitness to practice as appropriate, student of concern, safeguarding, harassment and bullying. The team will also support the wider institution in embedding systems and practices that enhance student wellbeing. Wellbeing and Welfare Advisers will also be able to offer guidance to Personal Tutors and Senior Tutors, where students are experiencing difficulties, and to support signposting to specialist services.
The successful candidate will be responsible for designing, implementing, embedding and managing this new team, to ensure effective prevention, reporting, support and wellbeing / welfare training initiatives for colleagues both within and external to the service. Understanding the current context of pressures and concerns in relation to student engagement and participation will be key in underpinning this activity.
With the Covid-19 pandemic, the health and wellbeing of King’s College community, staff and students is our absolute priority, so our campus will be open for the new academic year with safety measures in place – informed by our leading researchers and academics and based on the latest UK government guidance. However, please apply on the basis that you might be working from home some of the time. You will need to be able to work in a secure environment, whereby all information will always be managed in a confidential manner.
This post will be offered on an indefinite contract.
