Mentoring student one to one

Our committed mentors can help you find your feet, ensuring you have the confidence to take your next steps to a successful future career.

How will you benefit from taking part?

This is a fantastic opportunity for you to be matched with an experienced industry professional to gain skills, advice and knowledge about the world of work. Having a mentor can help you:

  • develop a solid foundation of skills to launch or further your career

  • understand the professional world of the sector you have chosen or wish to enter

  • reflect on your existing experience and motivate you to reach your potential

  • grow your network of contacts

All our mentors are experienced professionals who work in a variety of roles and industries. They can help you to reach your personal and professional goals and objectives by providing you with realistic advice, support and opportunities to learn from their experiences.

Examples of industries that our mentors come from include:

  • Accountancy, Banking and Finance

  • Architecture, Property and Construction

  • Business and Finance

  • Charity, Voluntary and Non-Profits

  • Civil Service and Government

  • Computing and Information Technology

  • Education and Teaching

  • Health and Social Care

  • Law and Legal Services

  • Marketing, Advertising and PR

  • Media and Publishing

  • Sciences and Research 

What are the commitments?

To take part, you will need to be able to commit to a minimum of five mentoring sessions over the six-month period between April and October. These sessions can take place at your mentors’ workplace – although sessions can also be arranged via telephone or Skype, especially if you are based internationally or matched with an international mentor.

How can you apply?

The application process involves an online form submitted through Engage, and if successful, attending a group interview and training session which will take place in March.

Applications for Cycle 2 (April - October) are now open and close at midnight on 23 February.

We hope you make the most of this opportunity and feel inspired to develop your career!
