The University of Lincoln is seeking to appoint an experienced Project Manager to help deliver a significant new project, funded by the Office for Students, entitled “Transitioning Students Effectively: a student-led approach to mental health support”. The aim of this project is to develop and enable a peer-to-peer approach to enhancing and supporting student mental health and well-being particularly in relation to transition from school to university. 

Taking a city-wide approach, the project will involve collaborative partnerships with other local educational institutions and support organisations and with Students Unions and student representatives. A cross-disciplinary project team will be formed with the aim of developing processes, procedures and tools to enable students to support each other and themselves. Students and recent graduates will be central to the project, helping to steer and deliver it, alongside experienced professionals and academic experts. Working with external partners, the project will also involve the development of a set of digital tools and content to underpin this self-sufficient approach, which will also be integrated into a school outreach programme and embedded in the curriculum.

The Project Manager will be responsible for ensuring that the project progresses to plan, coordinating activities and leading on the evaluation and measurement of its impact on students. In addition to liaising with student representatives, partner organisations and other stakeholders, the role will also include responsibility for ensuring that key activities of the project can be shared and replicated nationally across the sector if required.

The post holder will be responsible for monitoring and reporting project outcomes whilst also controlling, monitoring and reporting the budget spend to the University, line manager, and the OfS. The role will involve working to tight deadlines, accurate record keeping and reporting, whilst also engaging effectively with key strategic stakeholders and participants to both generate the opportunities and effectively evaluate and monitor the outcomes and impact.
