Who the mentoring scheme is for
Anyone in the UK or globally working at the Lloyd’s Corporation or market who would like to be supported in their personal growth and career journey, or has an interest in ‘giving back’ through helping others to develop.
How it works
We help match mentors with mentees through a platform called Pushfar. Twice a year we’ll open PushFar, and you’ll then have two weeks to explore the system and find a match for yourself. The system will help you with this by suggesting potential matches whose experience most closely connects with your needs, or vice versa. If you’ve had no luck in this two week window, we’ll step in to help find you a match.
You can create a profile any time before the next opening date, via the PushFar platform, but you won’t be able to make any matches until we open the scheme. Be thoughtful about your profile. The more specifics you include about yourself and your learning needs or experience, the more likely you are to find your perfect mentoring match.
We will hold webinars before each opening date to talk you through the system and how to make the most of your mentoring relationship. There’s also a wealth of resources within PushFar to help you on your way once you’ve found a mentee or mentor.
Benefits of a mentoring relationship
Both parties can gain benefits through mentoring.
The benefits of becoming a mentor include the opportunity to:
• Improve interpersonal skills
• Understand other departments and roles
• Give-back and nurture
The benefits of being mentored include the opportunity to:
• Learn and grow your career
• Develop self-confidence
• Develop skills and knowledge
• Better understand organisational culture
This can be decided by you and your mentoring partner, but we suggest that you meet for one hour a month, for six months.
