Full-Time, Permanent

Applications are invited for the post of Academic Adviser in the Disability & Neurodiversity team within the Directorate of Student Life (Wellbeing & Experience).

The role will work alongside the team of Academic Advisers in supporting students with disabilities at the College.  We have seen an increase in the number of neurodiverse students, so a large part of the role will involve providing one to one study skills support which will require the post holder to meet the DfE mandatory requirements to deliver DSA funded support.  The role also includes carrying out Specific Learning Difficulty (SpLD) screenings and delivering a range of workshops to staff and students.

In return we offer a rewards and benefits package including:

  • Generous annual leave entitlement
  • Training and Development opportunities
  • Staff support through our Employee Wellbeing Programme and access to Togetherall.
  • Pension Scheme with generous employer contribution
  • Schemes including Cycle to Work, Season Ticket Loans and help with the cost of Eyesight testing.
  • Free on campus parking.

With this role there is a need for some campus-based working required to enable in-person student appointments (based on student preference and need) but there will be some opportunity for working away from campus.   

The post is based in Egham, Surrey where the university is situated in a beautiful, leafy campus near to Windsor Great Park and within commuting distance from London. However, the post holder may be required to work at any of the locations where Royal Holloway’s business is conducted, including our central London sites.

Interview Date: To be confirmed

Please note that it will not be possible for the College to issue a Certificate of Sponsorship for successful candidates as this role does not fall into one of the standard occupational codes deemed eligible for sponsorship by UK Visas and Immigration. Successful candidates will therefore need to be eligible to work in the UK or have limited leave to remain in the UK and associated right to work for the duration of their employment with the College, in accordance with the Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Act 2006.

The university has adopted hybrid working for some roles therefore some remote working may be possible for this role.
