Disability & Dyslexia Team Mentor (casual post)

Student Operations and Support

Location:  Brighton and Eastbourne
Salary:  £22,659 to £25,482 pro rata
£23.90 per session
Closing Date:  Sunday 19 July 2020
Interview Date:  See advert
Reference:  SOMENTOR-20-148

Join our team of specialist mentors offering individual support for students to gain equal access to their studies by providing guidance with non-subject specific study skills such as developing organisational skills, managing workloads and time management, as well as maintaining academic progress. 

You will have proven and demonstrable experience of working individually with adults with mental health conditions and Asperger syndrome/autism, as well as a high level of analytical and problem solving ability.

We require mentors at our Brighton (particularly Moulsecoomb) and Eastbourne sites and ideally mentors will be able to commit to a minimum of two days a week, providing regular and consistent support. Each mentoring session will consist of mentoring and preparation work.

Recently, like most University of Brighton staff, mentors have been working remotely and supporting students via video calls. This may be part of the role as we return to campus in the next academic year but usually mentors work one to one with students in person on university sites.

*PLEASE NOTE due to government legislation all mentors must have membership of certain professional bodies so we cannot accept applications from those that do not meet this criteria. 

Please check Pages 9/10 of the Mandatory Criteria for NMH registration document attached prior to making an application.

In addition, a DBS check will be required for this role.  Interviews will be held in August/September 2020.

This role has a sessional rate of £23.90 per session. This includes the hour spent with the student and pre and post session work such as arranging future sessions, writing up notes and communicating with the Disability & Dyslexia Team when needed.
