London Alumni Mentor Program
SSE is looking to strengthen its position in London and would like to invite you to the SSE London alumni mentor program 2016/17.
The aim is to provide support to young alumni with one to four years of work experience to succeed in their present roles and to develop their full potential. Each mentee will be allocated a senior mentor from the SSE Alumni network in London. The mentor’s role is to support the mentee in career decisions and share experience from their professional careers in London.
We are looking for mentors
If you are already in a senior position in London with approximately 10 years of work experience or more, this is an opportunity for you to support junior alumni in their development and share your experience and thoughts. The time commitment is about 10 hours over a year and the mentee is responsible for taking the relationship forward. Most mentors find a mentor relationship very rewarding as it provides a different perspective and a way to contribute to other people´s success.
So if you are interested in developing other people and willing to share your experience and ideas please send us your CV and/or bio together with a short description of how you would like to contribute as a mentor. If you have any specific requirements regards the mentee please add them as well.
If you have one to four years of work experience after graduating from SSE and you feel that you would benefit from having a mentor either to support you in your present role or to move on to another position please send us your CV and a short description including:
- why you would benefit from having a mentor
- what you expect to get out a mentor program
- characteristics you look for in a mentor
- if you have a preference of a mentor working in a specific industry
Please send your CV and requested information to SSE Career Services, email@example.com no later than 30th September 2016. The selection and matching process will take place during August. Mentors and mentees will be invited to an introduction to kick-off the program. A follow up will take place at the end of the program.
SSE Career Services will manage the program with support from SSE ambassador network in London. For questions contact: Cecilia Frietsch, Head of Career Services (Cecilia.firstname.lastname@example.org), or Therése Sundbrink, Project manager (Therese.email@example.com).
We very much look forward to hearing from you and to working together.
