Wiltshire College & University Centre is the main provider of further and higher education in Wiltshire and is fast on its way to becoming outstanding having achieved a good Ofsted grade in June 2018. Based across the county on 4 main campuses, the College offers an extensive range of courses at all levels and has ambitious plans for growth in a region with exciting potential.
We are currently seeking an additional Residential Wellbeing Advisor to join our Residential Accommodation Services Team at our Lackham campus on a permanent all year-round basis.
You will need to be able to work a combination of twilight shifts (15.00-00.00) and night shifts (22.00-08.30). The shift patterns operate on a 4 on 4 off rolling shift.
As post holder you will be responsible for providing a safe and secure living environment in which all our Further Education (FE) and Higher Education (HE) residential students on campus can work, study and enjoy College life. As one of our new Residential Wellbeing Advisors, you will be an integral part of the ‘out of hours’ team and during ‘out of hours’ hold the most senior position on duty. It is an important role but also a very varied one. Depending on your shift, you may be involved in activities such as checks of accommodation and residential areas, enforcing curfew rules for under 18 students, ensuring that student behaviour complies with the code of conduct. You will also be involved in supporting student activities and providing pastoral support. At times, you will need to liaise with parents / carers and external clients / organisations. You will therefore need previous experience of working with young people, have a ‘can do’ attitude and be able to demonstrate strong communication skills and an ability to develop and maintain professional relationships.

Early in 2017 the College was awarded more than £20million of government Local Growth Fund money via the Swindon and Wiltshire Local Enterprise Partnership (SWLEP) to invest in its Salisbury and Lackham campuses.
