Leeds International Summer School (LISS) Social Assistant

Grade 2 (£19,898 – £20,333 p.a. depending on experience)

Available to University of Leeds students and University of Leeds graduates only

Do you want to help new students feel welcome at the University? Would you like to be part of a team delivering high quality support and activities for new students from all over the world?  

Leeds International Summer School (LISS) is a four week programme that provides a taste of British University life and culture to international students from a wide variety of educational and cultural backgrounds. The programme includes academic study, module-related field trips, day trips to places of historical and cultural interest and regular social activities. 

As a Social Assistant, your role will involve orienting students to their new environment, helping them to settle in and feel welcome, offering help and guidance where appropriate, providing a point of contact outside of class time, facilitating their social interaction, maintaining a friendly and responsible presence throughout the Summer School, and acting as an ambassador to the University of Leeds.  

You will be expected to maintain close contact with other staff (both academic and non-academic), work as a team to organise and deliver two to three social activities a week, and participate in module-related field trips and cultural excursions. You will also be required to carry out some administrative tasks before and/or during the Summer School.
