The Wellbeing Service is an umbrella term used to describe our various teams, Counselling, Disability & Mental Health, Welfare and Faith. We provide a holistic approach to student support to ensure students' individual needs are fully met to enhance their academic success, aid student experience and develop each student as an individual. The Wellbeing team is a busy and in-demand service. We are a tight knit team who help and support each other. We work hard and most importantly have fun along the way.

The Role

You will be required to produce Individual Support Plans (ISP's) for students recommending appropriate reasonable adjustments to support them during their studies. You will provide reflections around student's disability needs and make appropriate referrals, both internally and externally. At times you will also be expected to support colleagues in the Mental health team by supporting students with a wide range of mental health conditions.

The Person

We are seeking an enthusiastic individual to join our expanding team. You will be self-motivated, proactive and well organised person, who can work equally well as a team member and on an individual basis using your own initiative. You will be experienced working with individuals with different disabilities and able to offer specialist 1:1 advice to support their needs and help them in their studies.
