Mentoring opportunities

Mentoring opportunities

Mentoring can provide structured career development to individuals. The ScreenSkills website has resources to help individuals and organisations wanting to provide or receive mentoring.

Below you will find a longer guide and a shorter briefing about what mentoring is all about, what to expect and what is expected of you. The ‘sessions flow’ document illustrates how you can structure the mentoring conversations. Use the session log template to record what was discussed and agreed in the session. Use the action plan template to formalise the actions the mentee will do between sessions. If as a mentor you ever feel you are not able to help your mentee, you may find the information in ‘great mentors do not need all the answers’ useful. 

We will be recruiting mentors for specific programmes. Look out for details in our newsletters.​

All of our mentors are volunteers. Typically, mentors will have recent industry experience and will be one or two career stages ahead of their mentee.

Benefits of mentoring for both parties include:

  • Seeing things from another’s perspective
  • Increasing your network
  • Giving and receiving feedback
  • Developing communication skills
  • Learning from the ideas and experiences of someone who is different to you
  • Using your creativity
  • Boosting your job satisfaction
  • A deeper appreciation of diversity and inclusivity
