We have an exciting opportunity to appoint a Mental Health and Wellbeing Adviser to join the Student Support team. The successful candidate will hold a therapeutic qualification and will be registered with a recognised body such as HGI, BACP or UKCP.

The Student Support Team provides information, advice, guidance and interventions to students on mental health, wellbeing, dyslexia and disability, money and funding, and accommodation. Our students are mainly young undergraduates aged 18-23, with over 30% disclosing a specific learning difference or other physical or mental health disability. Over 13% of our students identify as Black, Asian or from another minority ethnic group.

This role will be working directly with students on a one to one and group basis to deliver mental health and wellbeing interventions, providing information, advice and strategies. The role will also support the Mental Health and Safeguarding Manager in overseeing and working with risk assessment and in supporting staff in the team. Offering a confidential service, working to effective personal and organisational boundaries will be important.

The post will require the successful candidate to build a good working knowledge of the University systems and courses to provide a holistic service within the University context. Working flexibly across campus you will find ways to effectively promote mental health and wellbeing to our diverse student body, through a range of delivery methods and in differing locations. Building positive relationships with University colleagues and external partners will be essential to the success of this role.

The successful candidate will have excellent interpersonal and communication skills with experience of delivering a person centred, needs led, confidential service. You will have substantial experience of working with young adults on a one-to-one and group basis and thinking creatively to identify options.

The post requires a flexible approach, and the working pattern may vary slightly in response to changes in demand throughout the academic year. You will be highly organised and able to plan and prioritise work effectively in an environment with multiple deadlines and concurrent tasks.
