My mentor was excellent - I appreciated her wisdom and time thinking through the broader context of work, and career and I have gained so much confidence in my skills, likely options and support network as well as gathered new ideas and ways of looking at the world. I would thoroughly recommend this OUBS Careers Mentoring Programme.
