Peer Mentor

Posted by For Jimmy

Location Lewisham, London, Greater London

Job Description

About Us

Following the murder of 16-year-old Jimmy Mizen in May 2008, the Mizen family has been determined to focus on two outcomes; that they will not be beaten by his death, and that something good will come from it. Since the charity was founded, For Jimmy has worked tirelessly to create a legacy of peace in Jimmy’s name; helping young people to fulfil their potential creating safer and peaceful communities. 

For Jimmy’s vision over the next three years is to make Lewisham a place of peace and safety. Through our Safe Haven Programme with socially and academically at risk pupils in schools, we teach young people about community safety, boost their skills and confidence, and get them involved in their local community; where they forge relationships and build a stronger sense of safety and belonging. The Safe Havens themselves then raise awareness locally about the responsibility of community members to help protect young people from crime.

About You

We are looking for exceptional individuals who can support our work by acting as mentors for the pupils on our programme. This involves facilitating group work with young people in schools, supporting them in their journey of personal development. We are seeking individuals who are passionate about working with young people, and who care about making communities safer in Lewisham and Deptford.

In the document attached, you will find more information about us and about the recruitment process, as well as a job description, person specification and the terms and conditions of employment.

Candidates are expected to submit a CV as well as a cover letter of no more than one A4 side, demonstrating how they meet the person specification and why they are applying for this position. The closing date for this round of applications will be Friday 21st September, although we will continue to accept CVs throughout the academic year 2017-18.

Please note, this is a term time role in line with Lewisham schools’ academic calendar.

The client requests no contact from agencies or media sales.
