The Vale of Glamorgan Council are seeking up to 2 Mentors on a temporary basis until at least 31/3/22 to help manage the increase in workload due to the impact of the Covid crisis on the local employment market and the resultant increase in the number of people looking for work in the Vale of Glamorgan area.
