Voluntary researchers wanted

Mentor UK is looking for volunteers to help maintain up-to-date knowledge of drug prevention and education

9 April 2019 | News

Are you passionate about helping children and young people in the UK lead healthy and harm-free lives? Do you think quality research can transform the way we think about substance misuse prevention and put this into practice? And are you interested in applying your skills in the charity sector and gaining valuable experience of how it works? If this is you, we could really use your help!

At Mentor, we’re looking for volunteers who can help us keep up-to-date with the latest research into alcohol and drug prevention and education in community, family and school settings. In a volunteer role, you will research and write briefs that will contribute to the ongoing development of our programmes and policy work. Because we are a small team, you will be able to work closely with staff to develop your areas of interest in line with Mentor’s mission and values.

This is a fantastic opportunity to work as part of a creative, dynamic and friendly team.  At Mentor, we are in an exciting phase of transformation and development. By volunteering with us as a researcher you can help shape the vital work we do with children and young people throughout the UK.

This role would suit recent graduates or postgraduates with an interest in work around substance use and alcohol and drug prevention in family, community and school settings.

Email elizabeth.hurst@mentoruk.org with details of your academic field and the area of research you are interested in. We look forward to hearing from you!
