The Student Money Advice Service is looking to appoint a part time year-round Student Money Adviser.

The successful candidate will provide a highly professional and proactive student money advice service, offering advice, guidance, and support to all students. You will be responsible for the promotion, administration and monitoring of the University Hardship Fund and other available University funding located within Student Services.

You will proactively manage and resolve a wide range of student-focused case work, requiring advocacy skills, liaising with colleagues within the University alongside those in external organisations such as the Student Loans Company and banks etc. In addition, you will collate and disseminate information on sources of funding and support, both internally to staff and students, as well as externally to prospective students, parents and outside agencies via a range of channels including social media and presentations. 

Our ideal candidate will be a solution-orientated and self-motivated individual, who will adapt their way of working to meet the needs of the team and students. You will join a proactive team to develop and enhance service provision. At times you may be required to support extra curricula activities such as the University open days. 

You will possess excellent communication skills and be able to manage a complex workload where attention to detail is paramount. You will also be expected to have good time management skills, with the ability to work effectively to a variety of deadlines, working on your own initiative but also as part of a team.

The successful candidate will be expected to complete a full, satisfactory DBS check.                                                       

Due to the current COVID-19 situation Student money Advice is temporarily working from home, with occasional on-campus appointments and activities. While this is likely to remain the case for the immediate future, it is anticipated that the role will return to on-campus working. Therefore the post holder will need to be located, or willing to relocate, so that they are able to commute to campus.

This role is part time working 21.9 hours per week (0.6 FTE).
