The Role of a Mentor

A mentor is an existing member of staff who assumes primary responsibility for providing help, guidance and support to facilitate the professional growth and career progression of another staff member and to give his or her mentee the confidence and capability to meet current and future challenges at work, or in relation to work. Although a mentor is usually an experienced member of staff, a mentor is best described as a ‘career friend’ rather than as a line manager. A mentor’s role is non-judgemental and confidential, and is distinct from performance management and appraisals. For more information download the Role of a Mentor pdf
