BE PART OF SOMETHING AMAZING! JOIN THE BREAK TEAM!
Here at Break we love delivering amazing services for children and young people. Our team are committed to providing care, support, and a brighter future for the children, young people, and families who need us, for as long as they need us.
We are very proud of our team of volunteer mentors, who provide invaluable support to some of our most vulnerable young people and families. Each young person has very different needs, so the type of contact a mentor has with their mentee will vary. Their contact may include casual activities such as going out for lunch or walks; helping young people access local community activities; or providing support with finding employment or educational opportunities. No mentor relationship is the same. A supportive relationship with a mentor – who is not family or a close friend – can encourage a young person to make positive changes in their life.
About the role and you:
We are seeking a candidate who is passionate about delivering amazing services to our young people, and would embrace the opportunity to be a part of this dynamic and evolving service.
Typical duties of the role will include:
- To hold regular recruitment and awareness raising events in the community
- To carry out appropriate checks, references, interviews and be available to assist the service to offer and deliver appropriate training for all potential mentors
- To assist in the matching of suitable mentors to young people/families
- To maintain accurate and up-to-date records – including agreed outcome measurements so that the service may be monitored and evaluated
- To supervise the mentors allocated and carry out an annual review
- To oversee the smooth running of mentor/mentee relationships and provide guidance to mentors and mentees to ensure that both have an enriching mentoring experience
What can we offer?
We are proud of the fact that we are a supportive employer who rewards you for your hard work and involvement in our life-changing charity. There are multiple benefits of this role, such as:
- A competitive holiday allowance
- Enhanced pension contributions of employer 5% and employee 3%
