The advice service sits in the wider advice and policy team. You’ll work with policy colleagues to help identify and solve recurrent issues affecting both specific demographics of students and the whole UAL community.
You will provide face to face advice appointments/drop-in sessions at the various UAL Colleges across London. Your work will be supervised by the Advice and Policy Manager however College outreach will often be undertaken alone and you will take responsibility for managing your own caseload.

We’re looking for a positive, enthusiastic and determined individual, preferably with experience in the higher education sector, to join our team.
The ideal candidate will have experience of advice provision (either academic or housing). You will understand the importance of confidentiality and possess excellent communication skills.
