IoD Mentoring Scheme

IoD Mentoring Scheme

iodFor level 6 students

We have a fantastic opportunity for final year business school students to join a mentoring scheme to help them get ahead onto the first step of their career ladders.

You will be able to seek advice and encouragement from a Senior Manager, Director or Chief Executive who will communicate regularly with you during your final year and offer support and guidance as you work towards getting your first graduate level position. This is your chance to express your ideas, career aspirations, ask questions, gain knowledge, learn techniques, and discover the secrets of being successful from a CEO, Managing Director, and/or an Entrepreneur.

Whether studying Business, Marketing, Accounting, Human Resources, Economics, Leisure or a combination of these subjects, you could have a wealth of relevant knowledge and experience at your finger tips, through your mentor.

This opportunity has been developed by the Business School in conjunction with the Institute of Directors, Europe's largest membership organisation for business leaders. They support 43,000 members through 44 regional branches across the UK, and an international network that covers six continents. Their 100-year success can be measured by the quality of their members, who are some of the most skilled and influential world leaders, from start-up entrepreneurs to directors in the public sector and CEOs of multinational organisations.

This IoD Student Mentoring scheme has helped over 160 students, over the last six years. Read our good news stories for more.

This year's scheme starts on 30 October 2017. Applications are now closed.
