We're looking for a Youth Mentor Project Officer to join the Saracens Foundation Inclusion team. This is a role which we hope will match the Charity’s aims for growth in the coming months as we aim to achieve the key milestones set out in our vision and strategy.
Since its inception in 2000, the Saracens Foundation has worked in the surrounding areas of Hertfordshire and North London delivering more than 30 projects in these local communities where sport is used as a tool for empowering social change in behaviour to lead active, healthy and rewarding lives.
The role will report directly to the Development Manager within the Inclusion team.
Saracens Group is an inclusive, people first organisation. A core part of achieving our mission is that our workforce is diverse and reflective of the community that we serve. There will be no discrimination in our recruitment and selection processes, nor when considering pay and benefits. We encourage people from all backgrounds to apply for the position and join us on our mission to enrich lives through sport and entertainment. (You can read more about diversity and inclusion here).
The project will aim to bring an improvement in protective factors and a decrease in risk factors in young people whose lives have been shaped by poverty, crime, family dysfunction or learning disabilities. The project will offer a package of one-to-one (1:1) support and incorporate group workshops and follow up discussions. It includes specific focus areas identified by the PRU, young person and their families, with a holistic and tailored approach to build resilient, adaptable young people.
If you are excited by the idea of working with our Foundation team, we’d love to hear from you.
