Why mentor?

Becoming a mentor

Alumni Connect provides a unique opportunity for you to share your knowledge with those just starting out.

Your hard-earned industry expertise and know-how is invaluable to students and new graduates making their way in the real world.

By mentoring you’ll be gaining new interpersonal skills for your CV and encouraging new talent into your sector.

"There are many reasons I enjoy mentoring. My biggest is the satisfaction I get in seeing someone’s goals and interests become reality."
