Mentors & Volunteers
The mentoring relationship is a key component of the Career Network.
As a mentor, you have a real chance to unlock a student’s potential and help them flourish as they start their journey from education to the workplace, whilst developing your own coaching and leadership skills.
Through sharing your own experiences, offering academic support and advice about the world of work, you will contribute to students’ raised attainment levels, widened career aspirations and increased self-confidence.
The face-to-face time commitment is minimal (1 x every 4-6 weeks, with email contact in between); but the potential positive impact of these relationships on our students is limitless.
“The HCN mentoring scheme has been vital in supporting students to recognise their talents, identify their goals, and take the necessary steps towards making them a reality.”
Maurice Benisty, Chief Commercial Officer at DEMICA
"Being mentored by Simon really expanded my view on a lot of things. We met regularly at Olswang and if I needed help or advice in between times, he was always there at the end of a phone."
Adnan, Business and Finance Network graduate
