You will work effectively as part of a wider Student Wellbeing team and be comfortable and competent in risk management, safety-planning and decision making. You will be expected to operate in a highly professional manner and build effective relationships across both the University and wider community, particularly statutory and other support services.

· A degree or equivalent qualification in either nursing, social work, occupational therapy, counselling, psychology or related field.

You will be joining a multidisciplinary dynamic and committed Student Wellbeing team where there will be opportunities for development, collaboration and creativity.
