Workplace Mediator, Mediation Service

**INTERNAL to University of Leeds Employees Only**

Do you have the personal skills to provide confidential support to those who are experiencing working relationship problems? Can you help colleagues to find their own solutions to their issues? 

As a workplace mediator, you will work confidentially as part of the mediation service to support staff members to resolve workplace relationship issues – enabling them and their colleagues to develop their own solutions to challenges they face.

Trained by one of the UK’s leading Mediation Training providers, leading to nationally accredited mediation status, you will be supported in your role through regular supervision sessions with the entire mediation team. You will develop a range of skills in managing interpersonal relationships and conflict resolution that will benefit you and your colleagues in your work outside the mediation service.

University mediators are unpaid roles and requires a commitment to workload remission of 5% to enable fulfilment of the training, supervision and time to support mediation cases. You will need the support of your line manager to progress your application.
