Thinking of applying? Here's what some of last year's mentors had to say:
“I think that it’s a really great thing to be able to help other people and really make a difference.”
“I love the fact that this job is not mundane - you never know what you’re going to face when you walk into a flat!”
“Organising socials are great fun and a nice break from Uni work!”
“I feel really proud that I have gained people’s trust and respect over the year.”
“Being a Mentor to a number of students has certainly built my confidence levels. Mentoring has given me a lot in terms of problem solving and knowing when to escalate situations”.
