About Mentoring Plus


Mentoring Plus is an award-winning community charity supporting children and young people across Bath & NE Somerset who are struggling with education, family difficulties or emotional wellbeing. Our vision is a world where all young people feel safe, feel heard and feel hopeful for their future.


Since 1998, our charitably funded work has provided trained volunteer mentors and skills-building group activities to help young people feel happier, stay safe, engage with education and pursue positive interests.


About the role


Mentoring Plus currently raises about a third of its income through charitable sources, and with demand at an all-time high, we’re ambitious to deliver more support. The charity has a strong record of winning funds from grants and trusts and community sources. We’re now looking for an energetic community fundraiser keen to help shape our future.


As our Community and Relationships Lead, you’ll be responsible for planning and implementing key events, challenges and campaigns to build income from individuals, groups and businesses. You’ll be supported by our Fundraising Manager and working alongside communications professionals as part of a small and energetic team.


About you


You might have direct fundraising experience or want to put your proven communications, marketing or event management skills to use for the benefit of a charitable cause.


You’ll need to enjoy meeting people, understanding their motivations and winning their trust. Equally, keeping accurate records and reflecting on completed projects are important to maximise effectiveness.


You’ll be part of a supportive and rewarding working environment with regular supervision, attention to well-being, CPD budget and lots of opportunities for role development.


Hours can be flexible across the week and school year and will include occasional evening/weekend events, for which time off in lieu is taken. Some regular home-based work is possible within our hybrid working policy, but please note this is not a role which can be delivered 100% remotely.


How to apply


If you fit this bill and want to make a real difference to young people struggling with tough challenges, we’d love to hear from you. Full details and application form can be found here. Deadline for applications is Monday 4 March by midday.
