Are you passionate about creating a vibrant and supportive community within a university setting? Do you enjoy working with young adults guiding and nurturing their personal and social development? If so, our Residential Wellbeing Coordinator role might be the perfect position for you to shine and make a meaningful difference in the lives of our students.

We are seeking 2 x Residential Wellbeing Coordinators to support and shape our Residential Life programme:

About Us: The Residential Wellbeing programme is a strand of the Student Wellbeing Service and forms a key part of the welcome and support network for students living in university accommodation. At its core is a mentoring programme based on senior students living and working in the University halls of residence providing support to their peers. The programme aims to create a safe and supportive living environment to enrich the student experience, develop a sense of community and foster a sense of belonging through the delivery of co-curricular activities.

Key responsibilities: As a Residential Wellbeing Coordinator you will support the recruitment, training, and management of a team of Student Residential Advisers and the delivery of a planned programme of social events. You will welcome and engage proactively with students living in halls of residence creating a smooth transition into university life by providing pastoral support, guidance, advice, and onward referral where appropriate. You will work 121 with students with complex mental health concerns or students in crisis by working with internal and external services to manage the level of risk.

Why this role is so rewarding: As the Residential Wellbeing Coordinator you will have the unique privilege of shaping the student experience outside of their studies. You will have a lot of autonomy in the role and freedom to develop and help deliver engaging social events and wellbeing initiatives. There is the freedom and budget for creativity. You will also work directly with students and develop a close relationship with both the Student Residential Advisers and residents, which is not only encouraged but a cornerstone of the role. You will develop friendships, witness students grow through their university experience, impact their lives and at the same time cultivate your own leadership and communication skills. An enjoyable element of the role is working with staff across the University from Estates, to Security, to the Accommodation Office and other strands of the Student Wellbeing Team.

To be successful in this post you will:

  • Be pro-active, with a flexible, collaborative approach to working in a team.
  • Have experience of having worked with and supported young adults in a variety of settings.
  • Have strong interpersonal skills and the ability to work collaboratively with a range of different support staff and students.
  • Be capable of identifying individuals that are of concern or have mental health difficulties and experience of support and risk management.
  • Show a commitment to and ability to create or get involved with a range of social events and activities with a focus on building a sense of belonging for all students.
  • Possess a good understanding and ability to respond to wellbeing and diversity issues facing students in Higher Education.
