Role Description

Could you help University of York students discover their strengths?

York Strengths is a sector-leading professional development programme designed specifically for York students. York Strengths helps our students gain further clarity on their personal strengths and how they can apply them in future careers.

We have a number of exciting opportunities for current York postgraduate students to support the York Strengths programme. Acting as an Observer you will identify the students' levels of competence and energy that they bring to each of the exercises, providing a personal summary to each member of the group.

Working with groups of up to six students you will:

  • Launch and manage the timings of the component exercises
  • Observe and record significant behaviours over the course of the day's exercises
  • Record your observations and prepare around five minutes of individualised feedback for each student on a one-to-one basis

You will be a current York postgraduate student and have experience of facilitating discussions and group work and be an excellent communicator. You will be familiar with some of the techniques used to assess individual's contributions to group activity, we are particularly interested in hearing from individuals that have, or are working toward, engagement as a Graduate Teaching Assistant, or similar roles.

The York Strengths assessment days will take place on the 17 and 24 Feb, 3 March and from 4 - 23 June (Monday - Saturday). We are looking for Observers who can ideally join us for 10 to 20 days including Saturdays.

The University of York is committed to promoting equality and diversity
