POSTED: 13 July 2016, CLOSING: 26 July 2016
Magdalen College is seeking to appoint a Student Mentor, if a suitable candidate applies, to provide practical and informed advice to students at the College regarding welfare matters, and to work closely and sensitively with the wider group concerned with the welfare of undergraduate and graduate students within the College.
The successful candidate will have relevant experience, which might include providing pastoral care in an academic setting, dealing with a range of psychological, emotional, and practical problems, and helping students to develop their independence and to build resilience. Familiarity with health and disability-related issues, and with ways of providing study skills support, would also be desirable. It is envisaged that the appointee could combine this position with an existing research, teaching, or other professional role, but no particular arrangement is expected, and the College welcomes applications from a wide variety of professional backgrounds.
This fixed-term post runs from 1 October 2016 to 30 September 2017.
Further details and the application form can be found below.
