Shine and Women1st offer mentoring scheme

A mentoring and seminars programme has been created to support the industry’s outstanding female junior managers in England.

Run in conjunction with Women1st and mentoring specialist Shine People & Places, each is worth £1,000 while the cost to the individual or employer is £100.

The scheme is designed to support women to achieve their full potential at work – especially in areas such as career planning, networking and influencing skills.

They must commit to a minimum of four sessions, virtual or face to face, over a six month period and any of the five structured seminars. 

People 1st, which has secured government subsidy for the scheme, and Shine have a strong network of senior executives working in the sector committed to support other women in their careers and foster their development around a “sound leadership competency” model.

All mentors will be trained in coaching/mentoring skills and participants will be required to attend an induction session.

A limited number of places are available with a November 12 deadline for applications.

“If you’re a female junior manager with the talent and commitment to take your career to the next level, or if you’re an employer who wants to make sure you’re getting the most from your staff, ask for an application form,” Shine said.
