Nottingham Trent University
About the Team
Student Support Services is looking to appoint a ‘Consent and Sexual Violence Development Officer’ within our newly created Prevention and Development Team. We are looking for an enthusiastic and motivated individual to contribute to our award-winning and sector-leading sexual violence prevention work. Upon winning the Times Higher Education Award in 2020 for Outstanding Support to Students for our innovative sexual violence training platform and the NTU Team Award for Empowering People for our collaborative work with Nottingham Trent Students’ Union on creating consent workshops for students, we are looking to expand and maintain our development work around preventing sexual violence from happening to our students.
About the Role
The Consent and Sexual Violence Development Officer will manage projects and campaigns that support the prevention of sexual violence impacting NTU students. Much of this role will be managing NTU’s award-winning, innovative and wide-scale ‘Consent is Everything Programme’ – consisting of the management, delivery, and evaluation of approximately 300 90-minute face-to-face workshops each academic year. In 2020, NTU students voted on NTSU’s ‘Big Idea’ platform for mandatory consent workshops for 1st year students. Working closely with NTSU, Student Support Services launched the programme in 2021-2022, with a team of nearly 100 student and colleague volunteers, a full-time coordinator, and part-time administrator. More information about our innovative programme can be found here: https://www.trentstudents.org/support-advice/sexual-health-consent/consent-workshops .
Working collaboratively across the University, Students’ Union, and Nottinghamshire, the post will maintain and develop strategies, programmes, projects, and campaigns that are student-led, evidence-based, and preventative, such as Bystander Intervention training, Sexual Violence Awareness Week, and Alcohol Awareness Week. This post will work closely with the Health Promotion Development Officer and our team of Sexual Violence Liaison Officers to ensure best practice, partnership working, and embedding projects within the NTU’s Whole University Approach to wellbeing.
Educated to degree level, with a relevant professional or postgraduate qualification or equivalent, the successful candidate will have a sufficient understanding of consent education, context of sexual violence impacting students, and the benefits of primary prevention to implement culture-change. The successful candidate will have impeccable project-management and team-leading skills, with the ability to organise one of the largest face-to-face prevention programmes within the U.K. In addition, you must have experience in project-work related to sexual violence, consent, or behaviour-change initiatives and be able to develop and deliver training, campaigns, and workshops around this content.
A commitment to diversity, inclusion, and student safety is essential for this role.
