Second year students offered opportunity to receive mentoring from working professionals

Second year students have the opportunity to meet with working professionals in the workplace for two hours a month courtesy of an innovative industry mentoring scheme.

Driven by you, you’ll get real insight into what employers are looking for when recruiting graduates, and learn invaluable lessons from recruiters themselves.

The scheme will add to the wonderful service offered by our Careers and Employability team and provide you with a space where you can talk about your concerns and develop the confidence to shine.

Second year students can sign up for either:

The Ethnic Minority Undergraduate Scheme (EMUS) – Open only to students who are from an ethnic minority and born in the UK, this scheme is facilitated by the National Mentoring Consortium (NMC), and there are currently 26 mentors ready and waiting to be matched on a one-to-one basis with interested students. Alongside the contact with your mentor, you’ll also receive two hours training from the NMC.

The University of Salford Industry Advice Scheme - Facilitated by askUS, this is suitable to second year students from any background, and your mentor will be a Salford alumni now working in industry.

All mentors receive training, so you can be sure that the person that you are matched with has the right skills to help you compete in the workplace.

Don’t delay in making your application. Places are limited and we expect to be oversubscribed.

The deadline for applications is Wednesday 26th October, with interviews taking place during w/c 31st October.

Success applicants will get two hours of initial training at the university on the afternoon of Wednesday 16th November, so please keep that date free.
