Volunteer Student Warden 2022-23

Student Services

Location:  Newport, Shropshire TF10 8NB
Post Type:  Part Time
Closing Date:  23.59 hours GMT on Sunday 30 January 2022
Reference:  SS-2021

We are currently reviewing the warden support model for future years and the current lower than expected number of applications has provided us with the perfect opportunity to pilot a new approach by opening up the 2022-23 application process and invite applications from all students of all years. We usually draw on mostly final year students but have decided to extend the opportunity to all current students in other years, recognising that we have a diverse student body with much to offer to the wider student community, so we want to hear from you too!

Student Wardens are an integral part of the Student Services Team and crucial to helping our new students settle in to Harper life. We are welcoming applications from anyone wishing to give back to the Harper Adams Community in return for greatly reduced on campus accommodation, excellent experience and skills for your CV and most importantly some unforgettable experiences with a great team.

We are also pleased to be able to head back to some normality and offer face to face interviews to those who are able to attend, aiming to hold interviews in the last week of term. If you are not available then, we will try to schedule a Teams interview at a mutually convenient time.

What do our current wardens think of the role?

“It is rewarding to in a position of responsibility that helps you give back to the university. You also tap into a large network of support and sector links.”

“Being a warden has offered me a wide rang of training and positive experiences that will help me in my future career.”

“I have made lasting friendships within the warden crew from working together and effectively as a team.”

“Being a warden comes with many benefits such as significantly cheaper rent for 42 weeks, being close to the Library, lectures and other amenities. A great help for my finances and my studies!”

“It is an eye-opening experience with a good depth of positions and opportunities to understand how the university protocols work as well as to understand the overall student experience.”
