Creatives are often used to supporting one another through the exchange of skills, knowledge and best practice. Mentorship makes this process a little more formal, and can be instrumental in helping you decide on the next move in your career.
Perhaps you're keen to meet a mentor who has successfully built a business in your sector, or you want to connect with someone who can help guide your marketing strategy. Maybe you just need a knowledgeable fellow creative to bounce ideas off as you continue on your own journey.
Whatever your needs, Creative Edinburgh's mentorship programme can pair you up with someone that can help.
Our Mentoring Programme is a benefit to all paying members of our community, so if you are a Student, Independent, Team Player, Leader or Bespoke member looking for support, please fill out the questionnaire linked at the top of the page. Once we have the information on your specific needs, we can match you with the perfect mentor - it's that easy!
All of our mentors are trained and come from a variety of backgrounds. Once we've introduced you to your mentor, we recommend that you meet each other for an hour every month for six months. However, everyone's needs are different, and you and your mentor have flexibility to decide when and where you meet.
To find our more about how mentoring works, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All our mentors donate their time to the programme. Many do so as a way of paying forward their wealth of knowledge and experience back in to the creative sector.
As a Creative Edinburgh mentor, you'll receive training, regular support and be invited to mentor meet ups, so you can get as much out of the experience as your mentee.
If you're interested in joining our network of mentors, email email@example.com, tell us a bit about yourself, and we'll get in touch.
