All placements will give you an opportunity to gain experience in a range of software packages and administrative tasks.

Mentoring Project Officer (part of the Equal Power Equal Voice’ Mentoring programme)

£16,645 per annum (£27,741 pro rata)

The ‘Equal Power Equal Voice’ Mentoring programme is an exciting new partnership programme delivered by WEN Wales, EYST, Stonewall Cymru and Disability Wales which 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.


It builds on previous successful mentoring programmes run by both Ethnic Youth Support Team (EYST) and WEN Wales. We therefore already have a fantastic framework from which to start the project.  Both schemes have resulted in mentees becoming Senedd Candidates, MPs, Councillors, public board members, trustees, and school governors. This programme aims to ensure that in the future, decision-makers, politicians, and Government better reflect our increasingly diverse society.


The project is a 3-year project intended to run from July 2021 to June 2024 and is funded by National Lottery and Welsh Government. We are recruiting four part time Project Officers, one will be based at each partner organisation. The posts will be managed by the Mentoring Project Manager, based at WEN Wales and will be matrix managed by the employing organisation too.


As a project partner, EYST is seeking to employ one part-time Mentoring Project Officer working 21 hours per week for a salary of £16,645 per annum (£27,741 pro rata). See attached Job Description and Person Specification. To apply please complete and return the attached application form to by 6pm 2nd July 2021. Interviews will be held week commencing 12th July 2021.
