Job Title: Student Adviser
Responsible to: Advocacy Manager
Salary: £25,818 per annum
Deadline: 5pm 30th July 2021
Interviews: Week Beginning 9th August 2021
We’re on the look-out for an enthusiastic and passionate Student Adviser who will support students through times of difficulty and help empower them to exercise their rights and make informed decisions. You’ll be comfortable working in a fast-paced and demanding role, which includes providing academic and housing advice to students in person, via email, via web applications and over the phone.
While you will be supervised by the Advocacy Manager, you will have responsibility for managing your own caseload and for accurately recording your notes and interactions.
You will come armed with experience of academic and housing advice provision, and will understand the importance of confidentiality, taking a client-centred approach, and dealing with cases empathetically. You will also possess excellent communication skills and be motivated by a desire to achieve great outcomes for students.
Experience of working in a Students’ Union is not essential. We are especially interested in candidates from under-represented groups, and those who have experience working with diverse populations. We encourage applications from black and minority ethnic candidates, who are currently under-represented within the Guild.
