Role: Young Person Support Mentor

Starting Point is a local project that mentors young people aged 15 – 25 into education, employment and training.

This is an exciting opportunity to mentor a case load of young people and to assist our Mentoring Lead in the referral and matching of the young people to their mentors.  We are looking for an excellent communicator with experience supporting young people primarily from disadvantaged backgrounds.

The relational and holistic approach of Starting Point’s one to one support has caused our programme to experience rapid growth. The support focuses on both the practical support (e.g. CV writing, job applications and interview prep) and social-emotional support (e.g. growing in confidence, self-belief and personal presentation).
