Staffordshire University is on a journey to become the foremost modern higher education institution in the UK, with an international reputation for excellence, and we are looking for inspirational and effective people to take us to the next stage.

Staffordshire and Keele universities have been awarded £750,000 from the Office for Students (OFS) to develop an integrated community approach to mental health and wellbeing for students in further and higher education, as part of a £2.2 million project.

The universities and their Students’ Unions will be working in partnership with local colleges and authorities, police and NHS providers, to effectively support students’ transition into, through and out of higher education, especially those that may be more vulnerable to mental health issues. It is hoped this will lead to new and innovative approaches that can be applied nationally in order to positively impact on student mental health, and as such a toolkit will be produced and shared across the further and higher education sectors. The funding is part of OfS’ major new programme to find innovative ways to combat a sharp rise in student mental health issues and spark a step-change in student support across the country.

The post-holder will be responsible for providing effective project support for the OfS Start to Success Project. They will also play a key role in developing and delivering an inclusive, connected programme of wellbeing support, initiatives and activity that will have a positive impact on the experience of Staffordshire University students and their supporters. The role will be predominately based at Staffordshire University.

We are looking for an individual who has experience of mental health and wellbeing within a community setting, ideally FE or HE; who has experience of delivering training a and experience of design and delivery of evaluation tools, i.e. surveys and focus groups. They need to have strong organisational and time management skills, with an ability to prioritise workload and meet deadlines, as well as be able to work constructively as both a member of a team, as well as under their own direction.
