Become a mentor

Starting a new career path can be overwhelming. Even with all of the resources available to demystify the sector, there's still no substitute for 1:1 conversations and support.

What is our mentoring programme?

As part of our mission to support more early careers talent into the digital sector within the North East, we're establishing a mentoring programme to connect those looking to enter the sector with experienced and knowledgeable mentors.

Mentors will provide support during the early months and help them overcome the initial hurdles we've all faced.

From interview stage fright to career direction, you'll help to provide support and use your knowledge to advise.

You don't have to know it all, you just have to believe in someone else.

Key benefits

Aside from being an opportunity to contribute to a leading provider in the North East, there are a range of other benefits to being a mentor too.

Brand exposure



Why become a mentor?

Our mentoring programme is informal, flexible and allows you to connect with mentees in your own terms; whether you prefer a zoom meeting once a month or a cup of coffee every week, commitment is up to you.

We'll help you understand mentoring best practice and facilitate opportunities for you to meet potential mentees face to face, as well as provide you with a "Tech Talent Mentor" badge.

This badge can be shared on social media to help you shout about the amazing support you're offering.

The aim is to make pursuing a career in the tech sector less intimidating and improve the path between employers and employment.
