THE PA MENTORING PROGRAMME IS ONGOING – YOU CAN TAKE PART AT ANY TIME
The Mentoring Programme has attracted a great number of applications and we have successfully matched several Mentor and Mentee pairs already. The programme is ongoing, and members can apply at any time to become either a Mentor or a Mentee.
Our Mentors are experienced Senior PAs and EAs, all have at least 10 years of experience within a PA/EA role, averaging for 20 years or more. We consider their industry background, experience as well as areas of expertise when putting forward a suitable Mentee to them. We then agree the suitability based on the Mentee’s skills, expectations, wishes and experience before finalising each match. No written reports are expected, just one-to-one meetings (can be video calls too) roughly every 3-4 weeks.
