Nightlines provide an anonymous and confidential listening and information service, run by students for students at their university. They work to improve student mental health and wellbeing and are open at night when no other university welfare services are available. Nightline services now cover over 100 universities and colleges, or over 1.8 million students, across the UK and Ireland thanks to an incredible team of over 2,100 trained student volunteers.
The Nightline Association is the registered charity that supports, promotes and develops Nightlines. Nightline Association is run entirely by volunteers, who get to play a hands on operational and strategic role in the running of a national charity. By volunteering for the Nightline Association you will not only gain more awareness of the work of the Association and the charity sector, you will also gain transferable skills and make new friends.
Your primary responsibility is to support institutions who wish to establish a Nightline service, working with them from initial contact until opening night, and up to two years beyond. Setting up a Nightline is a complex process that opens up a valuable service to a whole new student population.
Setup advisors work with Universities, Student Unions and students as they set up new Nightlines. This involves following a gated setup process and drawing on the experience and knowledge of the team, which is generally formed of experienced Nightliners.
There is also scope to take on project work within the team.
You will sit within the Setup and Policy Team. Your line manager is the Team Lead. The team sits within the Development department.
