Head of Mentoring

  • Full time
  • £27,000 – £30,000
  • Edinburgh and the Lothians
  • Closing 11th August 2019

  • Advertised from 9th July 2019


Are you also passionate about redressing social inequity, and do you view education as one of the most effective ways of achieving that goal? Would you like to join a supportive, inclusive, collaborative team? If so, Light Up Learning (LUL) is looking for someone who is enthusiastic and driven, to be its full-time Head of Mentoring.

This is an important and new role at LUL, with a focus on the quality of mentoring and the safeguarding of young people. You will act as our lead child protection officer and be responsible for delivering the Mentoring strand of our new strategy, which includes the establishment of a new youth forum.

The charity is in an exciting growth phase: in December 2018 we appointed a new full time Director and we are about to approve our future strategy for 2019–2022. Your role will be essential in helping us to grow the organisation and deliver on this strategy: including expanding into new schools, developing our mentoring model, running our evaluation process and being part of the leadership of the organisation. We are looking for the newest member of our small and friendly team, who is as passionate as us about achieving these ambitious goals.

We have a commitment to diversity and challenging all forms of inequality and are particularly keen to receive applications from Women, Black Minority and Ethnic, LGBTQI, disabled, migrant, and other backgrounds currently underrepresented within leadership roles in the third sector.
