In partnership with Fife Council Social Work’s leaving care team, we are delivering services designed to support young people who are in transition from leaving the looked after system and moving to independent living. Our role within the partnership is to provide advice and guidance to clients on employment, training or further education opportunities and the wider employability agenda.
If you would like to play a part in this exciting initiative, we now require a Personal Development Mentor to join our team based in Fife.
This post is based within the Levenmouth Community Enterprise Centre in Methil and works in close partnership with social work staff and other agencies. Experience of working with young people and an understanding of issues affecting young people are desirable, caseload responsibilities and a commitment to providing a professional service are essential. A driving license or access to a means of transport is essential due to the area covered. Knowledge of the Scottish criminal justice system and of working with care leavers is desirable. We have secured funding for this service to 31 March 2023 and we are hopeful of extension.
In view of the nature of this post, the successful candidate will be required to become a member of the PVG scheme.
