We are recruiting: Mentoring Project Manager

Tuesday April 27th, 2021

WEN Wales is recruiting a full time Mentoring Project Manager to join our supportive team!

The ‘Equal Power Equal Voice’ Mentoring programme is an exciting new partnership programme that has the potential to transform public life in Wales.

It will recruit and mentor diverse women, BAME people, disabled people, and LGBT people to be involved in public life, whether standing for political office, serving on public boards, charity boards, or as school governors. It has the power to transform Welsh society by supporting diverse people into power so that our political and public institutions better reflect the diverse citizens of Wales.

This role is about managing all aspects of the mentoring scheme as well as four mentoring project officers across our partner organisations. You will also support the recruitment of mentors and mentees alike, liaise and report back to funders, and ensure we are hitting our targets.

The scheme builds on previous successful mentoring programmes run by both Ethnic Youth Support Team (EYST) and WEN Wales and aims to ensure that in the future, decision-makers, politicians, and Government better reflect our increasingly diverse society. This will reduce the likelihood of disproportionate negative impact of future pandemics on specific protected characteristics groups. With our project partners Disability Wales, EYST, and Stonewall Cymru, we want to be part of efforts to not only build back better but build back fairer.

With a proven track record of project management, you will be dynamic, organised, and have a strong network across Wales. You will be extremely motivated, able to work on your own initiative and be ready to join a high-performing yet fun and supportive team of feminists who are all committed to equality.

We particularly welcome Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) and disabled candidates, as BAME people and disabled people are currently underrepresented in our staff.
