At Volunteering Matters we use volunteering’s unique power to bring people together and build stronger, more
resilient communities across the UK.
We bring people together to resolve some of society’s most complex issues. From social isolation and loneliness;
improving health and wellbeing; building skills, confidence, and opportunity; to ensuring young people can
become change makers in their community, the impact that we make is great. And we won’t stop until everyone in
the UK has the opportunity to thrive.
People-led and impact driven, we are a national charity that is deeply embedded in local areas across the UK. We
operate in five regions: London and the South East; Wales and the West of England; East of England; the Midlands
and North West England; and Scotland and North East England. We also have an Employee Volunteering Team with
over 25 years’ experience, acting as a broker to provide tailor-made solutions to employers. We turn local
knowledge and energy into action and progress, building stronger communities and a better future for all.
This is an exciting time to be joining the team. We’re changing the way we work to meet new ambitions and make sure
our impact continues to grow alongside out business.
ProjectScotland, part of the national charity Volunteering Matters, supports people to get on in life through the
power of volunteering. We are looking to recruit a talented, dynamic, and professional Mentor Project Worker, to
join our team in West Lothian. The right candidate would be someone who can work flexibly, and can demonstrate
an understanding of, and commitment, to our organisational values.
Young people we support include those facing multiple barriers or disadvantage. Our support helps them to achieve
positive outcomes for their future. As our Mentor Project Worker, you will work closely with our partner
organisations locally to deliver a high quality, impactful mentoring service across West Lothian.
