Contract, 1 year contract (extension subject to funding), Part-time
Job description

We are seeking a coordinator for our educational mentoring programme for young refugees and asylum seekers. The coordinator will oversee our West London mentoring hub by recruiting and training volunteer mentors, and matching them to young people needing additional educational support.

The successful candidate will need to demonstrate a strong approach to administration alongside being skilled at building relationships with a variety of stakeholders, including vulnerable young people, further education colleges and social workers.

As we look for new team members, exam grades and job titles are not the full picture - the context in which achievements were gained also matters. We actively seek to recruit with the right mix of talent, skills and potential, considering the impact of the context in which a candidate has worked or studied. We are an equal opportunities employer, and welcome applications from a wide range of candidates, including those with lived experience of forced migration and from other backgrounds that are currently underrepresented at REUK. 

Please refer to the job applicant pack (below as a PDF) for full information about this role and how to apply (please note that we ask you to address particular questions in your cover letter). If you’re unsure about whether or not this role is right for you, please feel free to get in touch to arrange a call before applying.
