Welfare and Wellbeing Coordinator
Hertford College invites applications for the post of Welfare and Wellbeing Coordinator to provide individual welfare support and guidance to students, to support the wider welfare and wellbeing team, and to promote wellbeing and resilience amongst the student body.
The Welfare and Wellbeing Coordinator leads the college’s welfare provision for students and promotes wellbeing in the college. They are available as a first point of support and guidance to undergraduate and graduate students and provide second-line support to the Junior Deans (normally doctoral students who live in college). They also support the College Officers in the handling of acute situations and provide ongoing support for students in difficulty or in need of advice. They provide administration for welfare and support for students with disabilities.
The Welfare and Wellbeing Coordinator contributes to decision-making and implements new initiatives to ensure that the college supports and enhances the welfare and wellbeing of all its students in the best ways possible and informed by best practice. In performing these functions, the Welfare and Wellbeing Coordinator works with the Fellows and other academic and support staff. There will also be frequent contact with colleagues in other colleges, with the College GPs, and with the University’s central administration, especially the Student Welfare and Support Services (including the Counselling Service and Disability Advisory Service).
The part-time role is weighted towards term-time working, and will involve some flexibility, depending on the weight of the cases.
