Do you have experience of providing mental health and/or wellbeing support? Can you manage a complex caseload? Do you want to provide support to students experiencing emotional distress?
The University is committed to delivering excellent and inspirational learning and teaching, research degree supervision and an exceptional student experience to all those who can benefit. The Student Education Service has been established, which brings colleagues from central teams together with colleagues from faculties and schools into a single integrated service.
As part of the Student Operations Directorate within the Student Education Service, the Student Counselling and Wellbeing Service provides a wide range of excellent and innovative support to help students manage psychological, emotional and psychiatric issues whilst at University.
You will work as part of a multi-disciplinary team of mental health advisors, counsellors, psychotherapists and wellbeing practitioners, providing professional, confidential assessment, triage and wellbeing support to undergraduate and postgraduate students who are experiencing emotional distress or difficulty.
Using your professional training and drawing on your experience and knowledge in mental health and wellbeing, you will manage a varied and complex caseload of students, provide initial assessments and appropriate interventions and deliver focussed group sessions.
