Current Residential Advisors

Residential Advisors (RAs) are an in-house team who help students to settle in and make friends, as well as offering advice about living in Manchester Metropolitan accommodation and information about accessing support across the University.

Recruitment for these RA roles are now open to second, third-year and postgraduate students living in halls of residence in the 19/20 Academic Year.

If you have experience of living in student accommodation and are a returning student with previous customer service experience, we would love to hear from you.  

The role is a unique experience and will provide you with skills that will make you stand out to employers and prepare you for life after university. You’ll also be paid!

Ashleigh Ralph, Residential Advisor Alumni:

“I would always recommend the RA role to current students as you develop useful and vital skills to prepare you for life after graduation. You get the chance to plan and run events, provide pastoral and welfare support to students and network with professionals.

“I joined the team in my third-year and was able to balance the demands of the role and my degree, but if you feel like you need some advice and are currently living in halls, please pop down to the daily RA drop-in between 6pm-7pm in reception. Or you can come to the Accommodation Office and have a chat with me!”

How to apply:

Ensure that you are registered with the Jobs4Students, complete an application form and then upload this to the “My CVs” area. The deadline for this is Sunday 12 May 2019, 23:59pm.
