Join our pool of mentors

We're looking to build a small pool of Mentors to support our project Gender Budgeting from Theory to Action and work with local authorities.

This role will involve working with local government departments to support them to embed intersectional gender budget analysis within decision making processes. Mentoring support will be provided to Council officials following training as a way to embed learning and provide practical support in day to day work.

We're looking for people with a good understanding of gender budget analysis and thematic areas such as housing, transport or care services as well as knowledge of local government budget processes and Equality Impact Assessments.

Projects will be agreed on a case by case basis, by joining our pool of mentors you will receive an introductory session on the project and the role of mentoring before potential projects are shared.

The rate for freelance mentoring is £350 per day (pro-rata). We envision each opportunity will take 3-5 days over the course of a number of weeks, including pre and post-session work.

We envisage delivery online, unless otherwise agreed.
