  • Lead on specific project elements, to include a mentoring programme and accredited learning programmes.
  • Line managing staff and volunteers and developing them to be their best selves.

This is very much a relationship building and project management role, and the successful applicant will also need to demonstrate:

  • Experience working with young people aged 16-24, supporting them into employment or similar outcome.
