A Master's degree in HRM or related programme.



Skills

We are seeking applicants who wish to gain first-hand experience of conducting research in management, and who have an interest in communicating research to non-academic stakeholders.



 



This part-time role is intended for an individual who is currently on the PhD program or finishing MSc HRM (or equivalent) and who is thinking about doing a PhD.

Languages at Queen’s, in collaboration with NICILT, will be running a mentoring scheme between September 2024 and January 2025 for school pupils in year 12. The aims of the scheme will be to support GCSE pupils in French, Irish or Spanish; to help them build oral skills; to support them with areas of language learning that they find challenging; to enthuse them about language learning; to build confidence such that those who might consider taking a language at A level feel empowered to make a positive decision. Mentors will act as ‘role models and ambassadors’ to programme participants, providing potential students with an enthusiastic insight into life as a languages student at Queen’s, including the experience of studying/working abroad or in the Gaeltacht.     



 



The mentoring will be ‘one-on-two’ (one mentor to two pupils). Mentors will receive training, including in relation to the Safeguarding Children and Vulnerable Groups Act. They will also give talks to cohorts of pupils in the school and will help with a taster day for Languages at Queen’s. Materials for mentoring and for the talks will be provided. This will involve a total of around 12.5 hours work.  Travel expenses will be reimbursed.
