Women in Manchester Insurance Network - Mentor Scheme

Friday, 18 October 2019

Sponsored by:

The Women In Manchester Insurance Network is proud to announce their first Mentoring Scheme, providing a unique external mentoring opportunity for the industries talent.

The 5-topic programme, over 9 months brings together industry leaders, future leaders and rising stars to provide support for factors that directly impact your careers – with focus on personal development rather than Insurance knowledge.

The scheme will split successful applicants into two tiers; Future Leaders and Rising Stars.

Future Leaders should be established in their current role (5-10 years), eager to progress within the sector and would find access to Industry Leaders beneficial. Alongside this, Future Leaders should be looking to develop their own abilities by providing mentoring to the Rising Stars, sharing experiences and providing advice as well as a contact point for future support.

Rising Stars applicants should be entry level into the industry with little to no experience (0-4 years) but striving for a career within the Insurance market, looking to benefit from mentorship from Future Leaders by drawing on their experiences to help guide the next steps of their career journey.

The scheme will provide two sessions for each topic on a bi-monthly basis; a breakfast session for the Industry and Future Leaders and an afternoon session for the Future Leaders and Rising Stars. Sessions will focus on topics such as Work Life Balance and Resilience.

To apply for this fantastic opportunity please complete one of the application forms below for either the rising star group or future leaders group based on the above criteria and return to lii.manchester@cii.co.uk by 5pm on Friday 18th October.
