Peer Mentor Role

Are you a good listener? Can you empathise, support and encourage new students while they settle into their first term at University? Are you willing to share your own experiences of settling in and guide other students to available information and help?  Starting at university is an exciting time but it can also mean big changes. Moving from school or college to university involves learning in new ways, making new friends, possibly even moving away from home for the first time. This is why we have Peer Mentors. As a mentor you will be a friendly face who can welcome new students to the university, answer their questions and reassure them. You will usually work with three to four first year students, keeping in touch on a regular basis and meeting up for a chat or a coffee. Peer mentors can help new first years in different ways. You might be using your experience to help your mentee get the most out of their first year at university, offering reassurance about concerns, supporting your mentee to develop their own revision or essay skills, or be someone who will listen in a non-judgemental way.

This is a rewarding paid role which offers excellent experience for your CV and full training. For more information on the role, please see the additional information.

The application deadline is 12 noon on Friday 24th April 2015.
