Job description

The Accessibility & Disability Resource Centre (ADRC) invites applications for a Disability and Neurodiversity Adviser for its new Non-Matriculated Student (NMS) Service.

Non-matriculated students are students studying for award bearing courses but who do not have membership of a Cambridge college.

You will provide specialist advice, guidance and support to current and prospective disabled and neurodiverse non-matriculated students (including students with Specific Learning Difficulties, ADHD and Autism Spectrum Conditions), and staff who support disabled and neurodiverse students. You will also work closely with academic and support staff within university departments and institutions (such as the Institute of Continuing Education), as well as with other professional services staff within the University's Student Services Centre. The post-holder will report to the Senior Adviser for the Non-Matriculated Student Service.

You will be qualified at degree level (or equivalent relevant experience) and a disability-related post-graduate qualification or a qualification in specific learning difficulties or Autism spectrum conditions would be desirable, as would a professional accreditation (such as membership of PAToSS, BDA, or NADP accredited member status, for example). You should have recent relevant experience of advising disabled and neurodiverse students and have an up-to-date and comprehensive knowledge of legislation, regulatory guidance and debate in relation to disability equality in a tertiary education setting. An understanding of, and commitment to, the principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) would also be an advantage.

You will need excellent verbal and written communication skills, and be able to work with people from a wide variety of backgrounds, experiences and expectations, demonstrating a commitment to equality of opportunity. The ability to work to deadlines in a busy support service environment is essential.

Information for disabled applicants is contained within the further particulars document.

Additional information regarding the role can be found within the Further Particulars. When applying, please upload your CV and cover letter which clearly sets out how you meet the criteria listed in the person specification along with relevant examples. Candidates will be shortlisted and invited to interview based upon these criteria.

Informal enquiries are welcome and should be directed to John Harding, Head of the ADRC at [email protected]

Closing Date: Midnight of Sunday 8th October 2023
