Apex Scotland is the leading employment and training organisation specialising in work with people with convictions.
Apex Scotland offers a diverse range of services for young people and adults to help them remove personal barriers to employment and engage in education, employment or community activities. We also work in partnership with many organisations and employers.
We have secured Phase 2 funding through European Social Fund’s National Third Sector Fund and are now looking to recruit a Personal Development Mentor to strengthen our exceptional team in Aberdeen.
The successful applicant will have the drive, determination to succeed, ability to motivate self and others, excellent communication skills as well as passion to help our client group change their future.
Knowledge and experience of working in employability would be an advantage, as would knowledge of the criminal justice system, however a comprehensive training package will be given to the candidate with the relevant personal attributes.
The postholder will be based in Aberdeen but will cover services in Aberdeenshire so a driving licence and own transport is essential.
If you want to join a great team, working for an exceptional organisation, doing a job that will bring personal satisfaction and a sense of pride then please apply now.
Due to the current Covid-19 restrictions, we will be conducting interviews mainly remotely through either Microsoft Teams or Zoom video conferencing. We will make suitable alternative arrangements for anyone who is deemed suitable for interview but does not have the required ICT facility.
In view of the nature of this post and the requirement to work with vulnerable adults, this post holder will be required to join the relevant PVG scheme.
