International Student Guides

Introduction

About the roles

Queen’s University Student Disability and Wellbeing Service requires up to three International Student Guides to play a leading role in the planning and delivery of a truly exceptional and enriching international student experience. Through communication and engagement with new and current students throughout the academic year, these posts will be responsible for organising, delivering, and evaluating events and initiatives that align with the various stages of diverse international student journeys.

These posts are available from an anticipated start date of week beginning Monday 22 August, working up to a maximum of 15 hours per week to support the planning and delivery of the Pre-Semester Engagement Programme and International Student arrival.

Thereafter, hours will vary per week, on average between 8-10 hours per week.

The post holders will play a key role in the delivery of the arrival and pre-semester engagement processes for new and returning international students. After this time, the Student Guides will be available on an ongoing basis to assist with term time delivery of student focused events and responses to day-to-day international student queries.

Due to the nature of these roles, we are only able to accept applications from International Students only.

Details on the major duties, essential criteria, desirable criteria, application process, and other key information is below.

Please Note:

These roles are office-based / campus-based. However, the department may be able to implement a remote induction for successful applicants should they not be physically in Belfast at the time of induction. This would be a short-term measure until you arrive in Belfast, and thereafter, successful applicants should be expected to be on-campus for the full duration of the posts.

Deadline to Apply:

Applications close at 11:59PM (Belfast time) on Wednesday 27 July 2022. Late applications will not be accepted.

Anticipated Interview Date: 

Interviews are currently anticipated to take place at the beginning of August via Microsoft Teams (you may wish to hold time in your schedule on this date if invited to interview). 

Queries about the Roles?

If you have any informal queries about these roles, your queries can be directed to studentwellbeing@qub.ac.uk 

  • Due to the nature of the post, we are only able to accept eligible applications from students who are available between the end of August consistently through to 23 June 2023. Although the hours will vary, unfortunately we are unable to accept applications from students who are expected to graduate from the University in December 2022. 
  • Anticipated start date: The anticipated start date for these posts is week beginning Monday 22 August 2022. While these posts will primarily take place on-campus, we would be willing to support successful applicants to work remotely (virtually) for the first few weeks in order to allow time to travel to Belfast. 

 

Important Notice for International Students

 

National Insurance Number

If you are creating a new QWork account, and do not currently have a National Insurance Number, you can add a Temporary number in format TN 010101 M ('TN' followed by your Date Of Birth, Male/Female).

Please visit NI Direct or Gov.uk on applying for a NI number. As soon as your NI number is available, please send it to QWorkAdmin@qub.ac.uk.

 

UK Bank Account

If you are an international student who does not yet have a UK bank account, you can proceed with your application and leave Step 3 (the part that asks for bank details) blank. This will allow you to apply for the job.

Whenever you do get a UK bank account, you will then need to log into QWork using the email address and password you registered with. This will bring you back to the incomplete profile, and you can add in your bank details then.

Please note that while it is fine for you to apply for the job without a bank account, if you are successful and are appointed to the role, you will not be able to complete any work until you have one.
