Mentor/mentee applications invited

Applications for the Mentoring Connections programme are invited from staff at all grades

All staff welcome

Mentoring Connections will be closing its next cohort on the 18th December, and will conduct matching in January and February 2016. 

The initiative matches staff wishing to develop their career with more experienced colleagues.

The programme is open to all academic and support services staff, who can apply to become either a mentor or a mentee. It encourages participants to meet and discuss issues such as work-life balance, career development and promotion paths, and to set goals and evaluate progress.
