Would you like to give back to the HR community and join our Global Mentoring Scheme?
We are looking for experienced and professional HR and L&D practitioners from all types of backgrounds to support those who need career advice and HR/L&D insight in areas that interest you. Minimum of commitment (just check in once a month with your agreed match).
What's the Scheme purpose?
Simply to give something back. The gift of giving and helping someone develop their self confidence, career and deliver a great performance in HR or L&D is something we can all give, it's truly worthwhile.
What are the Aims of Scheme?
Give less experienced HR or L&D Practitioners advice or support on
- Career options choices
- HR and L&D insight into areas they haven't had success in yet
- How to move forward when they feel 'stuck'
- A sounding board for ideas
- A listening ear, when self confidence is challenged
What's the deal?
For the mentor, we ask only for a minimum of commitment to 'check in' with your mentee every 3 months to make sure they are ok. Contact agreements are made between you and your mentee which we aim to match by area of interest or industry.
For the mentee, we simply ask you respect the workload of your mentor.
We would send you a simple form to complete, just a few lines to say who you are, what you areas of interest are and your industry/location and include you in a private, secure page only approved mentors and mentees have access too. You can withdraw your participation at any time, free of any commitment or responsibility.
What we don't do
We don't publicise your contact details openly, only with a potential match, on your say so.
What Benefits do I get from being involved in the Scheme?
- As a mentor you get the opportunity to give back something knowing that you are developing excellence in others.
- As a mentee, you get the opportunity to talk to someone who has been there and done it, sharing their experiences and accelerating your development and confidence.
