Faculty Student Wellbeing & Welfare Advisor
The university has recently created 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.
This sort of hub/spoke arrangement enables a model of supportive engagement, enhanced by faculty nuance, and providing a parity of offer for students notwithstanding the faculty they are in. It ensures seamless interaction with specialist SSWS services.
The post holder will provide an accessible point of contact to all students based in a particular faculty, offering professional and pastoral help and guidance if they are experiencing challenges or need support. This will include regular office hours & drop-ins, and complements the work of Personal Tutors and Senior Tutors.
The post holder will be active in ensuring students are appropriately signposted to specialist services in a timely manner, and will be a key conduit between central and faculty-based services supporting students.
