Mentoring

Our mentoring scheme for people who work within the media and creative industries is now underway. Applications for the scheme are currently closed. Applications will open again in October 2017 and the
scheme will recommence in January 2018.

Who’s eligible to sign up for the scheme?

Anyone can apply to be mentored or you may wish to consider becoming an InterMediaUK mentor yourself. Also, you don’t have to identify as LGBT+ to take part.

What do we look for in potential mentors?

Our mentors are all experienced media and creative professionals, who can offer a friendly face and a chance to ask career or personal development advice in a safe, relaxed environment. Mentoring is often an excellent way to enhance your career, obtain some extra support and guidance at a time when you might want to try something new, or have just made a career change. For many people, getting a mentor is a life-changing experience which offers insight and assistance that wouldn’t have otherwise been available to them.

Got what it takes to be a mentor?

If you think you have the ability to positively change someone’s life, you could apply to be one of our InterMediaUK mentors. You could work anywhere from across the media or creative spectrum. If you have particular skills that you would like to share and want to support the careers of other creative professionals, then you may consider volunteering your time and experience.

We will meet and greet every mentor, to give you a chance to ask any questions about the scheme as well as offering some light training to get you started together with the opportunity to network with other mentors.
