If you are currently in a social impact career and would like to mentor someone that hopes to enter one then please do get in touch. We are particularly interested in those who are less than 5 years into their careers, but more senior people are also welcome.
As part of the Progressive Careers Mentoring Programme mentees receive: 1-to-1 advice, support and guidance from a young professional already in a social impact career. By the end of the 3 month programme the mentee should have a possible career plan drawn up as well as a list of actions to take in preparation for securing their first role. At the completion of the programme they will also receive CV support from the Progressive Careers team.
Mentors receive coaching experience, a new addition to your CV and a warm fuzzy feeling. We will provide you with tips, advice and suggestions to develop your conversations with your mentee and help them create their career plan.
Being a Progressive Careers Mentor is a small commitment that is easy to fit around your work and life. All communication with your mentee is done online. You may wish to arrange Skype calls, but all we ask is that you respond to emails from your mentee within 10 days of receiving them and maintain communication for 3 months.
Applications for cohort 1 of the programme have now closed.
