As a member of the SSGT team you will be managed by the Student Wellbeing Team, in the Student Operations and Support Department. The successful candidate will work with students in the School of Business and Law. This role is based at our Moulsecoomb campus.
This is a full time position, available from 30th October 2023. We welcome applications from job sharers.

We embrace equality and diversity in our working, learning, research and teaching environment and are committed to maintaining a supportive and inclusive community.
