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 individual affiliated Nightlines in developing training, specifically relating to equality, diversity and inclusion. This can be achieved through researching practices used by Nightlines and other similar organisations, creation of resources that can be shared amongst Nightlines and answering member Nightlines’ questions. It is a really exciting time within the department at the moment as we have a number of interesting projects to get involved in. Diversity Training is a project that runs collaboratively with the Impact team, which will explore how Nightline services can redesign training to provide a greater emphasis on diversity.
You will sit within the Training Team, whose role is to provide support to Nightlines developing their training practices, and provide options and advice to any member Nightlines. Your line manager would be the Training Team Lead. The team sits within the Nightline Development department, headed by the Head of Development.
