Advice and Counselling Service
Post title: Student Wellbeing Advisers Post ref: QMUL25773
About the Role
The Student Wellbeing Adviser roles are two new positions based in our long established and highly regarded Advice and Counselling Service, although they will work closely with other colleagues within Student Wellbeing, particularly the Disability and Dyslexia Service. The post holders will act as a first point of contact for students experiencing problems with their mental health and will triage queries from both students and staff in our Schools, Institutes and Professional Services departments to ensure that these students get the most appropriate appointment. In addition to supporting students via appointments, they will also be required to make supportive calls on the phone or via online platforms like MS Teams.
We are seeking graduate level candidates with experience of working in a wellbeing setting, ideally within an educational institution, with knowledge of providing support, advice and guidance to people experiencing difficulties with their mental health. We require people with knowledge of referral pathways within the NHS for students with mental health difficulties.
About the School/Department/Institute/Project
The Advice and Counselling Service is a multidisciplinary student support service offering counselling, mental health support, psychiatry clinics, welfare advice, financial advice and immigration advice. Alongside the Disability and Dyslexia Service and the Student Life team, it makes up one third of the student wellbeing division within the Student and Academic Services directorate.
