Corporate Mentoring

We are looking for professional graduates to mentor our students who are in the final year of their studies. They need your support as they prepare for the difficult transition to university.

Mentors will be given the opportunity to develop a one-on-one relationship with one of our older students, providing vital pastoral support during a difficult period of transition and opening their eyes to new career paths and opportunities.

Priority is given to employees from organisations which sponsor IntoUniversity and support our programme. For a list of our corporate funders, please see our supporters page. A number of places are available for other individuals who have shown a particular passion or drive to become a mentor.

Please note that all of our volunteering appointments are subject to an enhanced DBS/PVG check and suitable references.

Who are we looking for?

Our corporate mentors must meet the following requirements:

- hold an undergraduate degree and be in full-time employment.

- a commitment to providing the best possible support to our young people

- enthusiasm and a proactive approach

- an ability to build a relationship with a young person

- are available for meetings on weekday afternoons and are able to meet at an IntoUniversity centre 3 times before meeting offsite

Quotes from our participants

"The best thing about the corporate mentoring scheme is the fact that you get honest and clear advice about university and what to expect while you’re there. I think that this is a great programme and I wholeheartedly recommend this to anyone who wants to get into university!" 
Hani - Corporate Mentee

"I believe the programme is a great opportunity to help young adults who may be unsure about university or may be at university but still require guidance. It is a fulfilling programme as you have the opportunity to help someone fulfil their potential and keep in contact with them as they progress through university."
Matthew Richards - CFA Mentor
