The Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust is a specialist mental health trust with a focus on training and education alongside a full range of mental health services and psychological therapies for children and their families, young people and adults.

We are committed to improving mental health and emotional wellbeing, believing that high quality mental health services should be available for all who need them. We bring a distinctive contribution based on the importance we attach to social experience at all stages of people’s lives, and our focus on psychological and developmental approaches to the promotion of health and the prevention and treatment of mental ill health

We contribute to the pool of ideas through our own research and development, but are also committed to bringing together the best ideas of the time, old and new, from inside and out, together with the most gifted and able professionals in our fields of endeavour. We aim to share our ideas and practice through as many routes as possible.

As a Trust we aim constantly to be evolving in nature and form in relation to the environment in which we work, to ensure that our contribution remains relevant.


The Trust

The Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust has a national brief for training in the mental health professions, social care, education and forensic services across the age range from infants to adults.

Education and Training accounts for approximately half of the Trust’s activities and remains a key priority for the organisation. The primary objective of the Trust’s education and training strategy is to train professionals, and to develop the skills, competencies, resilience and capacity of the mental health and wider care workforce. The Trust is committed to developing new training initiatives to meet the needs of a modern health and social care sector, and is responsive to policy and initiatives from government and other relevant agencies. It is committed to the expansion of training opportunities for professionals from all communities and social classes and to their continuing personal and professional development.

The reputation of our training programmes is very high. Feedback from students is consistently positive and highlights the impact of our courses in enhancing the skills of practitioners (professionals in health and care settings as well as in schools, criminal justice) to deliver their roles.

The Role

Courses within the Department of Education and Training are arranged across five portfolios (Social Care, Management and Leadership, Psychological Therapies, Psychoanalytic Clinical, Psychoanalytic Applied and Systemic). Our courses are aimed at those working in a wide range of roles and settings with children, adolescents, families and adults struggling with emotional, behavioural, educational and mental health difficulties.

The Student Recruitment Advisor will be part of the marketing and communications team working alongside a second Student Recruitment Advisor to achieve the Trust’s targets for student recruitment on our long, Postgraduate level courses.

We are looking for someone that will have responsibility for the daily activities of student recruitment from the first enquiry until the student enrols on the course. The post holder will be expected to support pre-learners in making choices as to the suitability of courses to meet their specific needs. The role is target driven within a supportive environment and multi-functional marketing and communications team.

Candidates are requested to use the section "Supporting Information" on the application form to set out their reasons for applying and their suitability, referring to the person specification, for this post.

THIS IS NOT A Human Resources ROLE. Please read the person specification and job description carefully before applying.
