Career Mentor Scheme
The Career Mentor Scheme brings bright, enthusiastic students together with successful professionals in mutually beneficial mentoring partnerships.
Mentors are professionals from all different sectors and professions who volunteer to support students by providing invaluable insight, advice and guidance into their chosen career via email, telephone, Skype or meetings in person at least once per month for up to 6 months.
Our mentors are a mix of alumni and non-alumni, from all sectors and professions and are based in the UK and overseas.
