Supply chain mentoring

Supply Chain Mentoring

At a glance

Mentoring gives you and your supply chain talent the opportunity to connect with and learn from supply chain leaders and individuals in different businesses.

8 months programme

4 April – 25 November

Format and number of sessions agreed with mentoring partner

Cost: Free    

We work with businesses around the industry to match individuals with industry leaders and experts. And here's the best part: it's a cross-company programme.

Everyone involved is partnered with someone from another, non-competing, business, usually between customers and suppliers

What you will learn

Work through the objectives you set at the start of the programme

Boost your confidence and personal skills

Improve your knowledge and awareness of the industry through this cross-company programme

Broaden your thinking and encourage you to see alternative perspectives.

Becoming a mentor is right for you if:

You want to nurture rising stars within supply chain

You want to share your experience more widely, and offer an outside view and perspective

It was hugely satisfying to work with a totally engaged individual who was prepared to listen to advice and accept coaching. To see my mentee develop this year has been a highlight for me

Becoming a mentee is right for you if:

You are open minded and want to benefit from a mentor’s knowledge and experience to make the most of potential career opportunities and skills gaps

You want to gain a wider understanding of supply chain

Having a neutral contact has allowed me to be incredibly honest about my development needs…the breadth from understanding a different working culture and approach has been eye-opening

Whether you are a mentor or mentee, you can commit to at least 3 mentoring sessions between April and November
