An exciting opportunity has arisen for a responsive and professional Mental Health Coordinator to provide advice and support to students to help them successfully engage and thrive in their studies.

We are looking for someone to deliver individual support to students, especially those with complex needs. The post-holder will also provide expertise and guidance for members of the wider team on the management and positive response to the mental health challenges of students. They will work closely with staff to enable a breadth of support and provide appropriate training and develop an inclusive and collegiate approach to the promotion of student wellbeing.

The Royal Agricultural University (RAU) has been at the forefront of agricultural education for over 175 years. One of the UK's smaller universities, the RAU has 1,100 students and we pride ourselves on our supporting our students. We have links with industry and all courses are designed to meet the demands of the employment market for land-based expertise, both in the UK and worldwide.

You will need to hold an appropriate professional qualification in mental health nursing or social work, with post-qualification experience. The role will be based in the Student Services team but you will work closely with academic staff to support students and you will be involved in work across the remit of the Academic Services department.

The RAU is set in beautiful surroundings and offers a range of staff benefits including 30 days annual leave entitlement plus bank holidays (pro rata for part time posts), pension scheme, free parking, employee assistance programme, occupational health and counselling services.
