Jobs

Opportunity 1: Become a Residence Welfare Lead

Recruitment is now closed for 21/22.

 

Residence Welfare Leads are inspirational volunteers who are either post-graduate KCL students on a Masters or PhD course, students undertaking a second undergraduate degree or are staff at King’s College London. RWLs are recruited for their dedication and enthusiasm for helping others and are specially trained to live-in the Halls and provide an out-of-hours wellbeing support service to our residents. 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 on the 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 difference to students, who would otherwise find life at university very hard.

Perks of the role

King’s Residences provides these volunteers with rent-free accommodation, as “living-in” 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.

Eligibility

You must be a postgraduate KCL student on a Masters or PhD course, be a student studying a second undergraduate degree or you will be a full time employee at King’s College London with enough course/contract time to cover the appointment period (1st August 2021 – 31st July 2022). Staff at King’s Residences are not eligible to apply.

If you were unable to attend the information sessions and you have any questions regarding the Residence Welfare Lead role please email us: welfare@kcl.ac.uk.
