Could you benefit from guidance in your career? Perhaps you’re ready to share your own experiences in the industry? Mentorship is consistently called out by the world’s top marketers as one of the most important aspects to career development and we couldn’t agree more.
We are delighted to run the Mentoring Programme aimed to allow peer support that may otherwise be unavailable. So, whether you are just starting your marketing career looking for guidance, or a seasoned marketer wanting to navigate the next step in your career or perhaps you’re ready to share your knowledge with the next generation, this programme is for you.
“I think it's a wonderful programme and I'd recommend it to anyone. It's such a valuable resource and to have a safe, trusted confidant to guide you outside of your normal peer group is really beneficial in my mind." - Brand specialist
“At the beginning of the mentorship I was at a crossroads in my career and did not know what my next move should be. My mentor helped me prioitise my goals and what I wanted from my next role. Having that helped me land a role which fulfilled the criteria we had set out" – Research Manager
“My mentor helped me understand "unwritten rules" which turned out to be very useful for numerous interview processes" – Marketing Analyst

Never had a mentor or been a Mentee before?
Don’t worry, once you are matched, we will provide you with tips to make the most of the programme. We just ask that you be committed, open and be prepared to set goals.
When does the programme run and for how long?
The programme will run once a year with applications open between May and June. The Programme will last 5 months with a 5hr commitment from both mentor and mentees (i.e. 1hr session every month)
