The Prospect Mentoring Scheme connects PR and Communications professionals from across the industry. It’s an invaluable opportunity for up-and-coming professionals to expand their network and meet industry leaders. Being mentored by someone who has had different experiences, can provide support in times of need and a different perspective on how to convert challenges into opportunities for growth.
In 2020, Prospect launched its first-ever Mentoring Scheme for people whose career was adversely affected by the pandemic. In subsequent years, the invitation was extended to anyone in the PR and Communications industry who could benefit from mentorship.
To date, hundreds of industry leaders from in-house and agency organisations in the UK, Singapore, Hong Kong and Mainland China have been partnered with professionals at all career levels.
Thank you Emma and team for coordinating this programme! Got a lot out of it, and I plan to keep in touch with my mentor!
I really connected with my mentor and learned so much from her. I also learned more about myself. My peers could really benefit from this programme.
Send through your application to take part as a mentor or mentee. Please note, only successful applicants will be contacted.
Mentee applications are reviewed and matched with industry-leading mentors. When making a match, we look for mentors in the same location (where possible) and with experience that can best support the situation as outlined by the mentee applicant.
We then introduce the mentee and mentor and provide guidance on how to structure the mentoring relationship.
The Prospect Mentoring Scheme is a six-month programme, during which time mentors and mentees are required to meet virtually or in-person for one hour each month. We check-in with both mentors and mentees throughout the programme to ensure that the process is going smoothly.
