Student Services works in collaboration with the University’s faculties and other professional services departments to provide a comprehensive range of support to all our students. From the first point of contact to graduation and beyond, our team of over 300 professional service staff is committed to enhancing the student experience and ensuring that every student is able to make the most of the extensive opportunities available for academic and personal development. This involves working closely with all those who influence the student journey and includes supporting University staff in updating and expanding their own skills and knowledge. We operate Information Points around the University campuses, where dedicated staff provide advice and access to support from specialist teams on a wide variety of emotional and practical issues – from money management, fees and funding, to course-related issues, faith, spirituality and general wellbeing. Our services also provide essential support for students with disabilities and learning difficulties, improving the quality of experience, smoothing the progression through the University, and ensuring that everyone is able to realise their full potential. We play a vital role in promoting real-world engagement, providing an integrated approach to careers, student enterprise and placement activities to prepare our students for successful futures. This ranges from assisting with opportunities for volunteering and arranging workplace experience and internships with partner organisations, to supporting leadership, creativity and innovation in those students who are aspiring entrepreneurs.

You would undertake face-to-face appointments as well as offering advice by telephone and e-mail. You will have significant experience of 1:1 advice work in a complex organisation.
