Wrexham Glyndwr University wishes to appoint an experienced Project manager to lead and manage a £430k HEFCEW funded project that seeks to transform access to wellbeing support for students studying in higher Education.  This bold, innovative and student centred project aims to enhance student wellbeing, build resilience and promote new ways of working using a replicable model of social prescribing. Co-created with key partners to benefit the university within its local community, this project is seen as part of a whole systems approach to wellbeing and will create a blue print that can be replicated across the HEI sector in Wales.

Working as a part of the student and campus life team, the post holder must have the experience, knowledge and skills to coordinate the various stages of the project, engage multiple stakeholders and partners and have the ability to report accurately against key outputs.

We are therefore looking to appoint an experienced project manager who is qualified to degree level or above and who can demonstrate strong organisational and planning skills. The post holder must also have effective networking and partnership building skills, together with the experience of managing budgets/deploying resources effectively.

Knowledge of Social Prescribing and/ or a background in mental health and wellbeing would be desirable.
