L8 Peer Mentors Trainee (young people)

Contract Term: 12 months

Hours: 10 hours per week (possible increase in hours if further funding is secured)

Training Salary: Minimum wage according to age

Place of work: The Florence Institute Trust

These trainee posts are open to young people aged (16-23 years) who live in the L8 postcode area and who are currently not in education, training or employment.

In February 2020 the Florrie were awarded funding via the ‘Community Cashback’ scheme to create two paid trainee places for young people to act as ambassadors/peer mentors in our community, help shape future activities and services for young people and work with our partner organisations across L8 to bring young people together.

Unfortunately as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic we had to postpone advertising these posts. We are currently making preparations to re-open the building and look at how we can deliver this project with young people while still observing the Government guidelines on social distancing and staying safe. We are now in a position to start the recruitment process, although at present we do not have a definite start date. We are also seeking further funding to increase the hours and further develop the trainee role.

Peer Mentor – The Role
Do you want to work for a great charity, make new friends, learn new skills and help develop and support new community initiatives for young people in The Florrie and across L8?

Please don’t worry if you have few or no formal school qualifications or have not completed training courses or have no work history, this is a trainee position and we will work with you to help you further develop your skills and identify any training to help you with your aspirations, your talents and your career goals.

How To apply:

To apply, you DO NOT need to submit a formal CV, just tell us why you would make a great L8 Ambassador for young people in our community. There is no right or wrong way to answer, we are looking for young people who show passion, drive and commitment and want to help make a difference in our community and our city.
