Current opportunities

Would you like to support a young person on their journey to gaining new skills and experience, becoming more self-confident and achieving their goals? Mentoring with ProjectScotland is a unique opportunity to help a young person make the most of their voluntary placement and to support them to work out their next steps. The support the mentor offers is dependent on what the volunteer finds useful and might include: helping your mentee to identify their skills and strengths, reflecting on their placement and working with them to develop their CV and interview skills. If that sounds like something you'd like to get involved in, the best way to proceed is to fill out a brief form on our website: https://www.projectscotland.co.uk/mentors/apply/. If you have any questions please email our Mentor Manager Kasia at kasia.czarnecka@projectscotland.co.uk or give us a call on 0777 52 59 059.

Are you looking for a rewarding way of sharing your experiences and life skills in order to make a positive impact in your community and help tackle child poverty? This is the opportunity for you! Part of the Parental Employment Support (PES) programme, Project Scotland is now recruiting volunteer mentors to support an individual in their community to overcome barriers they face in sustaining jobs or progressing in work. Our PES mentors offer one-to-one support to a local parent (mentee) they are matched with for 1 hour every 1-2 weeks. This role will involve getting to know your mentee and the challenges they may face, discussing their future goals, sharing your own experiences or skills and ultimately champion them to progress in life and work. Our volunteers do not need to have any specific career experience or qualification – just a positive and empathetic mindset and a passion for helping others to succeed.
