Mental Health. Disability. Wellbeing.

We’ve all heard of these terms.

But how many of us can talk about it from a position of informed authority? Perspective?

You certainly can.

After all, you have actual experience working with individuals with mental health conditions and other disabilities with a knowledge of the Mental Health Act, Equality Act and Mental Capacity Act that backs up your professional insight and knowledge.

Here at The University of West London, we don’t treat these issues like buzzwords.

We’re seeking a self-motivated, proactive and organised individual to effectively work in the Wellbeing Service, a team within Student Services, offering students specialist one to one advice and guidance to ensure their mental health and disability requirements are fully supported throughout their studies.

You will be required to produce Individual Support Plans (ISP’s) for students recommending appropriate reasonable adjustments to support them during their studies. Providing front-line assessment, support and if appropriate make internal and external referrals for students with mental health difficulties.

We have a duty of care for our students, and as such we’re looking for the very best to join us in facilitating that care.

This is a busy role requiring excellent interpersonal, communication and IT skills. You will need a comprehensive knowledge and proven experience of working with people with mental health conditions and other disabilities.

At times you may need to support students who present in crisis and will be experienced at supporting students/people in distress.

Applicants must have good I.T. skills with proven experience of working with IT systems to record, monitor and report on a wide range of confidential matters together with attention to detail. Due to the nature of the work, this position is not open for current UWL students.

When it comes to Health and Wellbeing It can sometimes take just one person to change someone’s life for the better.

Join us on that mission.

 

Please note, this role will require an enhanced DBS check. Our policy is attached.
