Following the successful return of students in London at Boston University this Fall, we currently have opportunities for a further three live-in Residence Life Supervisors (RLS) to help support our undergraduate students in university housing initially for the Spring 2022 semester starting early January through to mid-April 2022. We usually have over 300 students each semester, and the RLS team support students at nights and weekends to help staff ensure the safe and professional running of the programme.

The Residence Life Supervisor is usually part of a small team of 7- 8 RLSs and it is essential that this team works together as a close-knit unit, both for backup and support to students. The RLS team are the first point of contact for students and act as the backbone of the on-call emergency team. They work closely with: students, the maintenance and housekeeping teams, security and the Student Affairs staff. As the first point of contact every RLS should be able to respond well in difficult and emergency situations and have the patience to deal with more minor but sometimes challenging demands.

The RLS will be part of the on-call team which provides out of hours support on a 7-day basis when students are in residence and will be expected to be available during evenings and weekends on a pre agreed rota basis. The RLS role allows flexible working where you may have additional employment or are studying elsewhere on weekdays during the daytime.

You will need recent experience of a similar role, and to be good at communicating with students and creating a welcoming atmosphere whilst being able to maintain discipline. You should demonstrate a mature approach and the ability to make sound judgements, and you will be required to understand and abide by our current rules and codes of conduct.

The RLS team live in single en-suite rooms in our residences in South Kensington with access to shared student kitchens, and all associated bills are covered by the university. You will receive a competitive salary for your variable hours, and full training will be provided. You must have the unrestricted right to work in the UK, without a limitation on working hours.

To apply, please send your 2-page CV with a covering letter of your suitability for the role to Meg Cullen - Application deadline is Monday 15th November @ 3pm. Successful candidates must be ready to start by Tuesday 4th January 2022 but preferably and, if available sooner, will be able to move in and start from Wednesday 1st December 2021.
