careers and volunteering

Working for MAP means living MAP’s values every day. It’s important to us that we demonstrate these same values to each other as well as to young people.

The young people we work with are at the centre of every decision we make. We recruit staff and volunteers from a wide range of backgrounds with different experiences to make sure we offer the best service possible.

Always improving and preparing for the future

Our staff and volunteers are given support, freedom and flexibility so they can work in a way that’s best for young people. Regular feedback and our training and development processes help us continually improve in the work we do now, prepare for work we’ll do in the future, adapt to the changing needs of young people and maintain our high level of professionalism and expertise.
It’s these things that make MAP a unique place to work.
