Applications are now closed.
Residence Welfare Leads are inspirational volunteers who are either postgraduate students on an MA/MSc or PhD course, students undertaking a second undergraduate degree (having completed an undergraduate degree already) or are staff at King’s College London. RWLs are recruited for their dedication and enthusiasm for helping others and are then specially trained to live in the Halls and provide an out-of-hours wellbeing support service to our resident students. Being a Residences Welfare Lead in King’s Residences is an excellent opportunity for those wanting to get more involved with activities that directly impact student experience, as well as developing skills that will enrich their lives and CVs! This is a great opportunity for those looking to make a real different to students that would otherwise find life at university very hard.

Further information about the role can be found in these documents:
King’s Residences provides our RWL volunteers with designated accommodation rent and bills free. This is because living in the accommodation is a condition of service that Residences Welfare Leads must have for the proper performance of their duties.
In addition, Residences Welfare Leads receive extensive, accredited training at the start of their appointment in areas such as Mental Health First Aid, Suicide Intervention, First Aid at Work, Sexual Violence Awareness and many more. Being in the RWL team is like being a part of a large, supportive family - so this is a great chance to join a group of like-minded individuals who are all working together to make a positive difference to others.
Am I eligible to apply?
To be eligible to apply for an RWL position, you must be either:
- An actively studying postgraduate student on an MSc or PhD course at KCL, with enough course time left to cover the appointment period.
- A student actively studying either a second undergraduate degree or you are on the Graduate Entry Medicine programme with enough course time left to cover the appointment period.
- A full time employee at King’s College London with enough contract time to cover the appointment period (1st August 2023 – 31st July 2023). Please note: staff at King’s Residences are not eligible to apply.
All applicants must hold the appropriate Right to Work documentation that covers your right to work legally in the UK from 1st August 2023. If you are an international student planning to study in the UK from September 2023 onwards, your VISA may not allow you to work in the country until 1 month before your course start date (which is usually around 27th August), which would omit the compulsory training period for role. In these circumstances, you would need to ensure you had alternative Right to Work documentation.
Please note: 3 of our Residences – Julian Markham House, Moonraker Point and Canada Water operate on 40-week contracts only. RWLs at these sites will be on a shortened contract, ending 22nd June 2024.
It felt great to know I was helping students to navigate their various challenges throughout their degree. University can be really tough at times, and it was an amazing opportunity to make a positive impact on the students in King’s Residences– Julia Haas, Residences Welfare Lead
