The Department and role purpose

The Colleges and Student Experience Division includes the 15 Maintained Colleges, Experience Durham, the Student Support and Wellbeing Directorate, and the Wider Student Experience Operations Directorate.

The postholders will join the senior management team of Trevelyan or Hatfield College as one of three College Officers. They will oversee the majority of the work of their College on student support and development, leading on individual student support cases and escalating complex cases as necessary. The postholders will also take a leading role in pro-active wellbeing and development initiatives within their College, in addition to conducting disciplinary interventions with students on the occasions this is necessary. They will work collaboratively with other College Officers, engaging with students and other members of the College as well as external stakeholders, contributing to the broader College life. The postholders will be expected to contribute to an aspect(s) of their College's student enrichment programme (sport, music, theatre, volunteering, intellectual curiosity) and to have complementary skills and expertise to bring to the College team. They will be integral and visible members of their College community, working some evenings and weekends to support the delivery of College activities and initiatives, including participating in rota duties for the provision of out-of-hours Emergency Cover.

Trevelyan College was founded in 1966 and named after George Macaulay Trevelyan, the famous historian and Chancellor of the University from 1950 to 1957. Trevelyan was originally a women's college. - It was the last purpose-built all-female college to be built for a British university. Men were admitted for the first time in 1992 and the College now attracts a wide diversity of students, both undergraduate and postgraduate, with a broad range of interests, experiences and backgrounds. The new College tagline "Explore without Limits" reflects the College's focus on providing students with the opportunities they need to challenge themselves and develop into well-rounded, future-ready graduates. Hatfield, which is Durham's second oldest College, combines a thoroughly contemporary outlook with pride in its historical roots and traditions. Originally an all male College, Hatfield has been mixed since 1988. The modern College comprises a diverse student community, both undergraduate and postgraduate, with wide-ranging interests, experiences and backgrounds, creating an enriching College life for all. Reflecting the College ethos, #AllOneHatfield, all students are encouraged and supported to take up opportunities, to participate, and to contribute to the wellbeing of a thriving community.

Both Colleges also have a Senior Common Room, comprising members from both within and outside the University, and thriving and supportive alumni communities.
