We are a world-ranking University and endeavour for our support services to match. Student Support and Wellbeing comprise of a team of expert disability advisers, mental health coordinators, mentors and study skills tutors. The Disability Adviser post provides information, advice and support to disabled students; both prospective and current. These individuals may be affected by wellbeing and/or mental health conditions. The disability adviser’s core duty will be to provide information on reasonable adjustments at UCL, as well constructive and supportive advice on the implementation of reasonable adjustments. The implementation of reasonable adjustments will ensure we enable our students to access their teaching and learning, removing barriers that may impact upon their potential to succeed. The Disability Adviser will be responsible for supporting UCL students with disabilities, finalising reasonable adjustments within the higher education setting and fully completing the administrative processes necessary for this supportive role.

Applicants should have knowledge and understanding of the Equality Act 2010, as well as why this is relevant within a public sector setting. Applicants should be experienced in working in a setting that removes barriers for people with disabilities. When considering the removal of barriers, a solution-focussed response should be given, for example, the removal of physical barriers or the recommendation of assistive technology to support the individual. A general understanding of confidentiality and GDPR is necessary, particularly when thinking about our main service-user. Further training will be provided. Applicants should have an aptitude for problem-solving, able to see the bigger picture, as well as delivery of focussed support for an individual. Ideally, applicants should have knowledge or an interest of the complexities around the medical and social models of disabilities. We particularly welcome applications from individuals who have worked in wider support work with young people, for example, those waiting for an ADHD and/or Autism diagnosis. Experience or knowledge of the mental health difficulties experienced by young people is desirable. Current or previous membership of to the National Association of Disability Practitioners is desirable but not necessary.

Following the DfE guidance, we need to offer our students face-to-face provision. The present demand for this is minimal and therefore it is likely you will be able to work from home for 60% of the time.
