The PESGB run a mentoring scheme where we match experienced industry professionals to those with less than ten years’ experience. Great care is taken to ensure that the mentor/mentee pairs are a good fit for each other using their discipline, career aspirations/achievements and location as a guide.
This year, through continued advertisement of the scheme, we have recruited 10 new, highly experienced mentors (average industry experience of 25 years) who are very keen to be involved and mentor young professionals in the industry for career advice/planning, technical development, and life experience (working in different countries, etc). Furthermore, we have had previous mentors come back to us asking for more mentees indicating how successful and rewarding the scheme is for both mentees and mentors! We have received strong interest from young professionals who are keen to use the scheme to further their development in the industry.
Receiving mentoring through the PESGB can bring benefits such as:
- Personal development leading to knowledge, technical and behavioural improvements
- Management of career goals
- Wider network of influence
- Increased confidence and self-awareness to build performance and contribution
We will only match you with a mentor who suits your skill set and aspirations.
Common mentoring discussions:
Knowledge: technical knowledge, industry information
Networking: contacts to widen knowledge
Career Development: the future, job transition, development alongside role
People Management Skills: presentations, influencing, time management
Overcoming Challenges: managing difficult situations, lack of autonomy
