Becoming a mentor

If you 

  • hold a professional membership title
  • are interested in helping others achieve their goals
  • want to continue your own professional development

you are an ideal person to become a mentor! 

What does being a mentor involve?

The mentoring relationship is expected to be conducted mainly by phone or email; however, if you work in the same organisation or are geographically near each other, you may choose to meet with your mentee. We would expect you to have contact with your mentee 3-4 times a year.

Ideally you should look to mentor someone who works in a similar area of the sector to you and is working towards the same professional or chartered title as you have.

Mentor workshops 

The EI offers mentoring workshops throughout the year, usually through the EI’s branches. These two-hour sessions cover the basics of mentoring and allow you to share ideas and experiences with other potential mentors. If you would be interested in attending a workshop in your area, please contact your branch, or email the Professional Development Team at the EI
