This is a part time role for 28 hours per week

The London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) is one of the foremost social science universities in the world, with a global reach and an international student intake. The Student Wellbeing Service is central to the student experience: we aim to ensure that every student feels that they belong to a welcoming, inclusive, supportive, caring, scholarly community. SWS encompasses the provision of direct services to students which currently includes student disability, mental health and counselling support, proactive outreach to students to promote timely engagement with services, the development of effective peer and self-help, and community building activities to promote cross School student wellbeing (including trainings, workshops, and other engagement activities).

We are seeking a Wellbeing Adviser to join our new Wellbeing team. The Wellbeing Adviser will proactively work with students across the School to support their wellbeing. The Wellbeing Adviser will provide and deliver non-therapeutic support aimed at enabling study for students with wellbeing issues, mental health difficulties and disabilities. This will be in the form of one-to-one support, trainings, workshops, and other engagement events. Wellbeing Advisers are crucial to ensuring that students are directed to the most appropriate support in a timely manner. The Wellbeing team will be students’ first point of entry into the Service. They will triage students, signposting them to services within the wider SWS team, the School, or appropriate external services. The postholder will work with other teams within the service to ensure an integrated range of services to students.

The successful post-holder will be an individual with excellent communication, organisational and problem solving skills, personal resilience in managing conflicting demands and implementing change, and experience delivering workshops or training sessions to large groups. The ideal candidate will have previous experience of working with university students and/or experience working with individuals experiencing mental health difficulties.

We offer an occupational pension scheme, generous annual leave and excellent training and development opportunities.

As an equal opportunities employer, we welcome applications from Women and Black, Asian, Minority, Ethnic (BAME) backgrounds as they are currently underrepresented at this level in this area. All appointments will be made on merit or skill and experience relative to the role.

All successful candidates must be able to work on a Wednesday.

This position will be subject to an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check. Any offer of employment made is conditional on receipt of a satisfactory DBS check.”
