Project Support Officer


Job Description

As a small collection of members of the King’s community, we are asking what it means to belong to King’s College London.

COVID has changed the way we work. It has changed the way we study. It has changed the way we live. As we settle into a new normal, many are searching for ways to connect, to build strong relationships and seek out life-affirming experiences. Should the university environment meet these needs? Can King’s?

Universities are always changing. Our community is in constant flux, welcoming new students and celebrating graduations. Being a student is itself a process of change, embarking on new learning, striving towards a new career. There are opportunities to make new friends and explore passions and interests.

As our university never stands still, we all have an opportunity, even a responsibility, to shape our community.

Our Principal, Professor Shitij Kapur, has provided us with a rare opportunity, an open invitation to suggest ways to strengthen the community at King’s. All ideas and suggestions are welcome.

We are looking for current PhD students or research staff who can support the BE @ King's project on a part time basis (one day a week) over the academic year. Successful candidates will support the development and dissemination of information about the BE @ King's project, working to engage students and staff across King's in our discussion of what it means to belong at King's. You will encourage students and staff at King's to submit ideas for improving the community. You will support the review of submitted ideas and curation of resources around these ideas. You will work with partners at the King's Business School, Students Union and IoPPN to put together a programme of events to run in the spring semester 2024, to support enthusiastic students and staff to develop their ideas into viable initiatives that could be implemented at King's. 

This role will report to Dr Nicola Byrom, within Uni-SMaRT, the university and student mental health research team. 


It is expected that the successful candidate will have a degree, and be working towards a post-graduate qualification. 


The following skills and experience would be helpful: 

  1. Confidence using social media, including Instagram. 

  2. Connection with student and or staff networks within King's. 

  3. Experience developing podcasts. 

  4. Experience with event organisation and delivery. 

  5. Working collaborative. 

  6. Working independently. 

  7. Effective personal time management. 

  8. Teaching and / or experience supporting student engagement. 

  9. Experience with qualitative and / or quantitative research. 

  10. Strong copy-writing skills. 

  11. An understanding of theoretical concepts around loneliness, belonging, community cohesion and / or public mental health strategy. 

This is a diverse and varied range of skills and experience. We appreciate that one candidate may not have experience in all these areas. Please tell us about your experience.
