Residence Life Are Recruiting

Filed under: Southend Bulletin — Danielle Karanicholas @ 8:08 am

Residence Life Recruitment for next academic year opened on 18th January 2021. Residence Life is a service which aims to help students have a positive experience of living and learning at Essex and we are recruiting students to join our dynamic and supportive team of Residents’ Assistants (RAs) and Senior Residents’ Assistants (SRAs). The RAs and SRAs are student staff who help our students to settle into university life, answer any questions they may have, organise fun events so they can meet new people and help them solve flat issues by organising flat meetings. Our RAs and SRAs are also trained to support students with low level wellbeing struggles by providing a listening ear and signposting them to the appropriate services. Every flat in University Square is allocated an RA or SRA who assists the residents and helps them resolve any issues. You can find more information about Res Life and what we do on our webpage:

Any current University of Essex student (UG and PG) can apply to both roles on as long as they are still a student next year and are willing to live in University Square. The roles are great opportunities for students to gain a range of skills and valuable work experience so please let students who might be interested know. Residence Life will hold Zoom Information sessions for anyone interested in applying and finding out more about the team and the RA/SRA roles. Details for the Information sessions are outlined below and on the University What’s On page:
