Applications are invited for the post of Harassment & Wellbeing Adviser in the Student and Academic Services Department. 

This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced professional to act as our first point of contact for students experiencing and reporting harassment or violence, including through our RH Be Heard portal, and to provide specialist advice and support and co-ordinate referrals to internal and external services as needed.  

The Harassment and Wellbeing Adviser will support informal early resolution where appropriate and prepare referrals for cases where there has been a suspected case of misconduct working closely with the Conduct & Investigations Adviser and Student Conduct Officer. The role will also work alongside the Wellbeing Advisers to offer routine general student wellbeing support.  Working closely with professionals in Student Advisory & Wellbeing and the wider Student & Academic Services directorate, the successful candidate will contribute to the supportive and transformative university experience we strive to provide for our students.

Candidates should have experience of offering wellbeing support & guidance to those who have experienced harassment or violence and a good understanding of the dynamics of the impact of such behaviour.  A thorough understanding of the criminal justice system is desirable and candidates must be able to demonstrate a strong awareness and knowledge of the HE sector approach and response to the pursuit of zero tolerance of harassment and violence.  The successful applicant will also be able to demonstrate a high level of emotional resilience and be equipped to manage and respond to complex and emotive student issues. The ability to work at a fast pace in crisis situations and to pay close attention to detail will be important in the role.  

This is a full-time and permanent post, available immediately.

In return we offer a highly competitive rewards and benefits package including:

  • Generous annual leave entitlement
