Join our dedicated team at the University of Surrey and make a significant impact on student lives as a Student Wellbeing Advisor.

Your expertise and passion for student welfare will be instrumental in nurturing a supportive university atmosphere. This brand new role will be integral to the proactive and whole university approach to wellbeing that Surrey has in it’s strategic direction. 

Role & Responsibilities:

As a Student Wellbeing Advisor at the University of Surrey, your core objective is to provide holistic support and guidance to students, promoting their mental health, emotional wellbeing, and overall resilience.

You will play a vital role in fostering a culture of wellbeing across the university community by offering personalised advice, resources, and interventions to help students navigate the challenges they may encounter during their academic journey.

Responsibilities include: 

  • Provide confidential and non-judgmental support to students facing mental health, emotional, or personal challenges through one-on-one meetings, actively listening to their concerns, and offering practical advice and resources.
  • Respond promptly and effectively to students experiencing crises or emergencies, providing immediate support, referrals to appropriate resources, and follow-up care as necessary to ensure their safety and well-being.
  • Develop and facilitate workshops, training sessions, and awareness-raising activities on topics related to mental health, stress management, resilience-building, and self-care to promote well-being across the university community.
  • Engage in outreach initiatives and awareness campaigns to promote mental health literacy, reduce stigma surrounding mental illness, and encourage help-seeking behaviours among students.
  • Establish and maintain collaborative relationships with internal and external stakeholders, including academic departments, other support services and community organisations.

Your dedication to promoting wellbeing will contribute to creating a supportive and inclusive campus environment where all students can thrive academically, personally, and socially.
