The Counselling & Mental Health team is seeking to recruit a Mental Health Advisor, with a registration to a professional body (e.g. HCPC, SWE, NMC), and preferably with experience in Higher Education setting and population. 

Student Support and Wellbeing Services combine a range of teams to deliver holistic support for students, including the Counselling & Mental Health team.

As a Mental Health Advisor with the Counselling & Mental Health team you will undertake clinical triages and assessments, manage an ongoing caseload supporting students living with longer-term mental health conditions, assist Student Support and Wellbeing on emerging complex mental health issues and crisis in students, provide clinical consultation for safeguarding and other university staff, and assist in developing the team’s student service-user participation and peer-support initiatives.

ALL criminal convictions, cautions, reprimands or final warnings, even if they would otherwise be regarded as spent under this Act must be disclosed, as well as any other information that may have a bearing on your suitability for the post, including pending prosecutions.

The University will apply for a DBS certificate before your appointment is confirmed.
