Members or Certified Members can apply to be mentored. Selection criteria is based on availability of mentors, location, match and assessed needs. As part of the application process and you will be asked to watch the webinar below and read through the Mentee Handbook. This will help you understand the process, set your objectives and determine your goals.  

Before embarking on your mentoring journey, now is a good opportunity to think about what you would like to get out of the experience, whether it is to develop a new skill, a different approach to an element of your role or guidance on working towards the next step in your career. Although, for the sake of clarity, the scheme is not designed to provide any technical training, shadowing or business support. 

Please complete the brief questionnaire below to give your Mentor a better understanding of your experience and what you hope to gain from the programme. With a limited number of mentors available your application will be assessed alongside other mentees looking for a match. Please be thoughtful and detailed in your responses .

Our trained mentors give their time freely in order to give back to a profession. If you are selected as a mentee, you will be expected to respond to their communications in a timely manner, schedule meetings that work for both you and your mentor, complete a session record form after each meeting, and be engaged fully for the mentoring term.

The mentoring scheme is currently closed for applications and will re-open in Spring 2024.

Please watch the MRS Mentee Webinar, with copies of the Webinar Mentee Handout and Mentee Handbook to hand for reference. To read the full handbook click here.
