Job Description

Every young person should be able to fulfil their potential, regardless of their background.

Delivering 60 online mentoring projects each year in partnership with universities, business and charities, we give young people across the UK access to support networks, online careers information, and high-quality mentoring.

Our work helps young people to succeed. We believe young people are best equipped to make confident and informed decisions about their futures if they:

  • Have hope and a growth mindset;
  • Are confident and know their strengths;
  • Can deal with difficulties in a positive way;
  • Have knowledge and skills for the career they are interested in;
  • Know who to turn to for advice and support.

We pride ourselves on our friendly, professional and supportive culture, with 100% of staff recommending working for Brightside in our most recent staff survey. Our mission and the team are valued highly by all. We embrace new ideas and we are always looking to improve how we work.

We plan to expand our work with universities and to launch new products in the corporate market. And we need to attract brilliant people to help us achieve our ambitious goals.
