The Peer Mentoring Project Worker will complement therapeutic support within the Health & Wellbeing Team by recruiting and training volunteers to work along-side the therapists, increasing access to services. This includes setting goals specific to the young person’s needs relating to self-development, connecting with others, learning and work and physical health. Through weekly meetings, peer mentors will develop a positive, meaningful relationship aimed at improving the young person’s mental wellbeing, social confidence and reducing isolation.

We’re looking for a candidate with experience of volunteer recruitment, training and management, ideally related to peer mentoring, although training will be provided. The ideal candidate should have experience in the youth work sector (or related sector with a youth work focus). We need a personable, outward facing colleague who is comfortable working alone as well as part of a team.

We are an inclusive, equal opportunities employer and offer a range of great benefits.
