Are you an experienced Mental Health Advisor who ensures appropriate practical and psychological support is in place based on the Social and Recovery Models of Mental Health? Do you want to enable students to function more effectively and fulfil their personal and academic potential?

We are looking for someone with substantial experience of providing support for people with diagnosed or possible emerging serious mental health conditions. If you are able to evidence the capacity to assess, monitor and manage young adults living with mental health difficulties, including crisis response, we would be interested in hearing from you - especially if you have considerable experience of working with adults diagnosed with Neurodevelopmental conditions.

Essential to this role is effective, responsive liaison with community and university student support services and delivering mental health awareness training sessions to colleagues across the University, and flexibility of working hours, which may include evening hours.

Due to the current Government Coronavirus lockdown and social distancing measures, the interviews for this role are likely to be conducted remotely using Microsoft Teams or Zoom.
