The POWERful Women mentoring scheme is called POWERful Connections and we’re looking for mentors and mentees.
POWERful Women’s mentoring programme has been in place for about four years and has resulted in 65 mentee/mentor matches. However, with the recruitment of our new Project Officer, we are aiming to expand the number of matches from an average of 12 per year to over 40 per year, which is an ambitious target. We are looking for women with 10-15 years experience, who have been working in energy for a minimum of five years.
The seniority of the role of the applicant is important as our service is designed to support women looking to move to exec and board positions within the next five years. However, if you are earlier in your career and looking for career support do look at our website pages here.
We continue to work with other women in energy groups in the sector, with the support of BEIS, to signpost you to a variety of mentoring schemes as well as career coaching resources. If you are a senior energy professional (ideally C-suite) and you can provide 6-9 hours of your time over 6-9 months to be a POWERful Connections mentor, we would also love to hear from you.
