Coventry University Health and Wellbeing Services are seeking to recruit a suitably qualified and experienced individual to provide practical assistance and advice to students and staff in relation to students who are experiencing mental health difficulties.

The University Group has several campuses in the UK and students from all campuses can access Student Services.

The successful applicant will have extensive experience of working in a Mental Health and Counselling setting. You will be required to manage a team of Mental Health Advisers and Counsellors and provide psychological support on a one-to-one basis for students with mental health difficulties or learning difficulties with associated behavioural issues. You must be confident in managing students at immediate risk of self- harm and/or suicidal behaviour whilst also being able to support other members of staff.
