Recruiting for 3 roles in North, West and East of Scotland

Are you searching for a position with purpose? A role to make a real difference? Where your time can be transformational?

Join an award-winning charity and passionate team dedicated to ensuring the country’s most vulnerable and disadvantaged young people are defined by their talent and never their circumstances. Our in-school mentoring has profound impacts on mentees in their confidence, wellbeing, achievement and post-school progression. MCR Mentors make and experience a life changing difference.

At MCR, our driving force is simple – that young people who are in, or on the edges of the care system, will have the same educational outcomes, career opportunities and life chances as any other young person.

In 2021 MCR were winners of a prestigious UK Centre for Social Justice Award CSJ award. The CSJ produced this film about MCR young person Emily and her mentor Elaine.
