This new, fixed-term role, will provide management and oversight of a team of Student Resident Assistants and will support their work in providing a signposting service to help residents with any difficulties they may encounter (from emotional issues, academic worries, disagreements between flatmates) and help coordinate and deliver a diverse calendar of events to help students settle in, make new friends, learn new skills and feel part of a supportive community. The role will also support processes relating to student support casework for student residents.

The successful applicant will have experience of delivering events/activities, preferably in Further or Higher Education (FE/HE) or in a residential environment. The successful applicant will also be able to demonstrate experience of leading teams and supervising/managing staff.
The successful candidate will ideally have experience of a similar role in a large organisation and will have excellent customer service skills and a welcoming and professional approach.
