Mentors Work – Your pathway to business recovery

This year has posed many threats and depending on the nature of your business or industry, you may have a wide range of challenges to face. MentorsWork are there to support you through this, no matter what stage of the process your business is at.

The MentorsWork programme is designed to provide you with the skills and supports to help your business thrive, by addressing the specific needs of your business. You choose the priority areas for your business and we tailor the programme to suit your needs.

MentorsWork is a free, structured 8-week business-support programme, comprised of an integrated approach of mentoring and learning supports. These supports include one-to-one mentoring sessions, peer-focused workshops, expert-led masterclasses, and access to a curated online learning platform. The programme aims to help your business adapt and thrive, by improving skills and competencies across four learning pillars; People, Finance & Growth, Digitalisation & Automation and Business Processes.

Participating businesses will be paired with a sector-specific mentor at the beginning of the programme and guided through the entire process, which is structured specifically to address your critical business competencies.
