We are recruiting for Student Mentors to work between November 2019 and November 2020, therefore you must be a current student for the academic year 2019/20. As this contract is for a year, students due to graduate in December 2019 are not eligible to apply.

As a Student Mentor you will be a casual worker for the University, working as part of a large team and will gain access to a host of benefits, including excellent training. 

Students who are successful in joining the Student Mentor team will benefit from:

  • Paid casual work assignments 
  • Unpaid voluntary opportunities
  • Full training
  • Continuous Professional Development training
  • Reference to reflect the work carried out throughout the year
  • Opportunity to represent the university and the North East Collaborative Outreach Programme at local and national events
  • Uniform (t-shirt and zipped hooded sweatshirt)

You must be available for at least 5 hours per week, and be able to attend a compulsory training session on 7th – 8th December 2019. An Assessment Centre will take pace for shortlisted applicants 11th and 12 November 2019.
