Work for us

Life can be tough for young people. Navigating their way through sexual exploits, mental health crises, financial woes, and job hunts can leave them feeling lost. That's why we're here.

We're a small charity with huge goals. We want every young person to feel supported and empowered with the decisions they have to make, and you can be a part of that. You'll be surrounded by passion, creativity, and determination. Sounds good, right?

Fancy joining our wonderful team? Do you want to support young people with their issues in a fun, chilled, but fast-paced environment? We want to hear from you!

Case Studies

Louise Jones, Content Officer
I've been writing online since I was a teenager and have always had a determination to represent and support young people. I actually started at The Mix as a volunteer, a similar story to quite a few of us! I took on a Relationship Advisor role after I finished university, and then saw a permanent role of Editorial Assistant advertised. I'm now Content Officer and have been working at The Mix since 2015. I feel incredibly lucky to be working for such a supportive and progressive charity.
Mike Stuart, Youth Support Officer-Community
About six months into joining the community, I started volunteering as a general chat moderator. I quickly started to realise that volunteering with The Mix was something I loved doing, and also that I wanted to make a career out of this kind of work. After taking part in some face to face workshops and doing a work placement at Mix HQ, I was approached and asked if I was interested in a nine-month apprenticeship. I jumped at the chance. Once that came to an end, I applied for a job and here we are.
Jane Scaife. Chat Expert
Hi! I’m Jane Scaife. I’m 35 and live in Bristol. When I’m not working for The Mix, I’m a freelance marketing copywriter. How did I come to work for The Mix? I used to be a chat moderator for CyberMentors, a service run by BeatBullying. I loved getting to know young people in the chatroom and being a positive influence, helping them to get peer support online.
