Guidance on finding a Mentor

As a requirement of the national Graduate Management Training Scheme, all Graduates need to select a mentor to provide one to one personal support and advice.

It is important to get this right and select a mentor that can support you at this crucial stage in your development. Selecting a mentor that has influence, is experienced in the required areas of development need and well regarded across all organisations will provide valuable advice and guidancefor your current roles and future career.

What is mentoring?

Mentoring is primarily about developing capability and potential. It is a specific learning and development intervention which can be used widely but in a specific context such as development, induction, or sponsorship.

Who should I approach?

Your mentor should preferably be an executive Director or CEO from the organisation of your choice that has varied experience and influence and is someone who you do not directly report to. This will allow greater freedom to examine situations and experiences with a non judgemental or biased approach. Furthermore, it is important to select a mentor that you feel comfortable with so that a mutually balanced relationship can develop. If you choose a mentor that you do not have anything in common with or from an entirely different occupational background, the relationship may become strained with limited learning.

What is a mentoring relationship?

The mentor relationship should be different to the guidance and advice received from your Programme and Placement Managers. A mentor is someone that you can contact regarding general management and organisational issues. They should be able to advise you on everyday situations, supporting you to understand how to deal with scenarios you may be facing. You can also learn from their experience and access careers advice and direction.

Full details on how to choose the right mentor and the mentoring

relationship are covered in the “Guide to choosing the Right
