The Role:

The Welfare and Liberation Coordinator acts as the Students’ Association’s key staff contact for issues relating to student welfare, liberation, and inclusion. This involves maintaining an awareness and understanding of both student-led and University work in these areas.

Alongside colleagues in the Representation and Democracy team, they will support our five Sabbatical Officers – and particularly the Vice Welfare – to pursue their objectives, with a particular focus on issues of mental health, sexual violence, and diversity, as well as broader issues relating to student welfare and wellbeing.

They are also the key staff support for the Students’ Association’s five Liberation Officers who represent Black and Minority Ethnic (BME), disabled, LGBT+, trans and non-binary, and women students. Their role is to provide administrative support, advice and guidance to help the Liberation Officers pursue their objectives, while liaising with the Sabbatical Officers and colleagues in the Students’ Association’s Marketing and Communications team to ensure that our work is effectively communicated to our members and other key stakeholders.

They will deliver training to upskill and empower the Liberation Officers, and educate other student representatives and student groups about topics relating to welfare and liberation.

The Person:

You will be a confident and enthusiastic individual, with excellent organisational and interpersonal skills, who has experience of working alongside and supporting diverse communities to achieve change.

You will have the ability to lead projects independently and work collaboratively, responding sensitively to the needs of our students, and engaging a range of stakeholders in our work with your passion and commitment.
