The University of Law (ULaw) is one of the world's largest law schools. With an impressive history dating back to 1876, we employ over 1,000 staff and have over 14,000 students studying on our undergraduate and postgraduate programmes, along with an alumni network in excess of 100,000. We were the first-ever independent institution to be granted degree awarding powers and in 2012 we gained university title. With a rich heritage and a reputation for innovation and contemporary teaching practices, we continuously focus on developing the best legal and business minds. In 2016, we opened our leading Business School, further enhancing our reputation as a full service legal, business and educational training specialist, operating from campuses throughout the UK, Berlin and Hong Kong and an Online campus.
We are seeking an experienced Study Skills Advisor to join our growing team. In this role, you will provide study skills tuition and support to students to increase their chances of completing their course successfully and/or improving their academic attainment and employability prospects. This includes, but is not limited to, assisting with writing skills, reading and note taking, critical thinking, revision and exams, presentation skills, numeracy and time management. You will also design, create, and maintain and where relevant deliver online study skills materials, resources and webinar content in line with current pedagogic theories and university policies, vision and values, and to liaise with relevant staff within the university to promote the service and ensure the best possible alignment with student needs.
We are particularly interested in hearing from candidates with a numeracy, mathematics and statistics background to enable us to enhance support in this area, and from candidates with an academic background and/or professional experience in Law, Business or Psychology.
The role is home-based, with occasional travel to our campuses in the UK.
What do we offer?
We offer an excellent range of competitive benefits including a generous annual leave allowance, private medical scheme, contributory pension scheme, life assurance, training and qualifications, and travel loans.
