About the Role

Student Services plays a crucial role in ensuring that students have an enriching and fulfilling experience during their course of study.  The remit of the department is to support students with many of the aspects of student life that impact on their studies and student experience.  This includes provision of wellbeing and counselling; student insights and student voice; inclusion and disability support; student communications; financial support and money advice; student induction, activities and opportunities; student support and continuation of studies; multi faith and community; and support for disadvantaged groups such as care experienced students. 

Over recent years there has been an increase in the legislative and regulatory requirements that relate to areas of work that are led and managed by Student Services.  This role holder will support the department to meet these requirements, taking responsibility for the administration of key activity.  Providing professional support to panel meetings will be another important part of this role, as will monitoring and reporting on the activity within the service, analysing data and using this to make continuous improvements to the Student Experience. 

This new role will not deal directly with students but will provide essential administrative support to ensure compliance with the various internal and external reporting, procedural, legal and regulatory accountabilities in Student Services.  

NB: Some of the topic areas which will be covered by this role will be on sensitive subjects such as Safeguarding, Mental Health and Suicide, Sexual Misconduct, and Terrorism.
