We’re currently looking for a talented and enthusiastic student, currently in either Post-graduate or Undergraduate study, with a passion for research and a desire to help us learn more about the experiences of students who have accessed professional services to gain support around mental health. Our expectation is that this will be a piece of anonymised quantitative research, but it may also require some face to work interviews or focus groups. This is a one-off opportunity to play a vital role in LUU’s desire to lobby for improved mental health services for students in Leeds. The successful candidate will work closely with our elected Welfare Officer, and colleagues from our project partners in the University of Leeds and Student Minds. Whilst we are looking for someone who has already undertaken some research, we have support available from experienced researchers, so this is also a fantastic learning opportunity.
Approximately 60-70 hours over the next 3/4 months, flexible around your University hours and studies, with working hours being integrated into the teams office hours of 10am-4pm at a rate of 8.45 an hour.
Support will be available, but the successful candidate will be able to demonstrate a proactive approach to work and an ability to manage their own time in order to meet our project deadlines around any study commitments.
If you have excellent communication and organisational skills with a positive attitude and an ability to deliver data and research findings in an interesting and engaging way we can’t wait to meet you.
