Following an extensive strategic review of our mental health and wellbeing provision for students across the collegiate University, a Mental Health Change Programme is to manage the implementation of the review's recommendations.

We are seeking a Project Associate to join this team and transformation project. This exciting role will require the application of a wide range of skills to lead and support workstreams of varying scale and complexity; from conception and set up right through to delivery and evaluation.

Implementing the Review will be transformative to student mental health and wellbeing services across the institution, affecting change at micro and macro level.

This position offers an exciting and challenging opportunity to join a newly- formed and ambitious department as we embark on delivering a strategic transformation programme that aims to make a real and tangible difference to students' lives.

This is a time-limited post (2-year fixed term contract) to coincide with implementation of the review. The role is advertised as full time but we welcome applications from individuals who wish to be considered for flexible working arrangements.
