Matching lived experience to enable career success

Our mentoring programmes support mentors and mentees to develop fresh perspectives and gain insight from another sector.  Since its inception, our mentoring programme has supported over 100 successful mentoring partnerships.

At WIG, our unique cross-sector approach supports individuals and organisations to develop, collaborate and grow.  We work with our diverse membership of public, private and not-for-profit organisations to create mentoring opportunities tailored to individual development needs.

To  help you form mentoring partnerships, we offer two different services:

  • Our bespoke mentoring service is where our specialist talent team will work with you, on an individual basis, to find you a dedicated senior mentor for up to a year. Fees apply. See below for more information

  • Develop cross-sector knowledge
