The Role

The University of London is seeking to appoint a Student Wellbeing Manager within its newly formed Student Life Team. This is a rewarding opportunity to join an innovative team and engage with a worldwide community of 45,000 online distance and flexible learning students.

The Student Life Team sits within the Online Education Directorate and its purpose is to help students succeed in their studies at the University of London, improving student outcomes and maximising the advantages they derive from their time with us.

The Student Wellbeing Manager will contribute to providing an exceptional student experience with a focus on promotion of positive mental health and wellbeing, prevention of and early intervention of ill health, which also contributes to suicide prevention work. A key requirement will be to create and develop new wellbeing focused projects and to support and augment work already initiated within departments, and work closely with a range of colleagues from across the stakeholder community. The Student Wellbeing Manager will be key in the practical implementation and integration of wellbeing within all Student Life initiatives, to enhance reaction, engagement, support, retention and completion.

The University will be unable to sponsor candidates for a visa for this role. Successful applicants must be able to demonstrate their right to work in the UK for the duration of their employment.

The University reserves the right to close the vacancy earlier than the published end date should it receive sufficient applications to warrant earlier shortlisting.

The University currently operates a Hybrid Working framework involving a mix of working from remotely and in the office. Typically, the majority of employees will be able to agree to work remotely for up to 60% of their working week, role dependent, however, will be required to attend on specific days for training or team meetings.

The University of London is committed to promoting a diverse and inclusive working environment where we can all be ourselves and succeed.
