Senior Mentor in Nuneaton, Warwickshire

Great fun
Lovely to interact with the young people and get to know them, but management is often poor due to the lack of organisation. You often end up doing way over your paid hours.

Nice fun easy summer programme
If you’re looking for a some summer work I’d recommend friendly people fun activities and decent money for a 3 week programme. I would do it again as a wave leader.

Good
I had fun working for them. Good team, good part time job for the summer. Can be tiring at times but the rewards are worth it and the pay is quite alright.

Productive and Fun workplace
It is a fast paced and ever changing work environment. Extremely target driven and motivated company whom kept young people at the heart of everything they do. I loved each and every second of it.
