Manchester Gold Staff Mentoring Programme 2014
03 Feb 2014
The University's unique and successful career mentoring programme is now open for registration for both mentors and mentees.
Managed by the Staff Training and Development Unit, Manchester Gold aims to develop staff across the University by linking them to the support of a more experienced colleague. This colleague will act as their career mentor over a nine-month period.
The scheme is for any staff member working at the University who would like help with their career development. Whether you are academic, technical, research, administrative or secretarial staff, Manchester Gold Staff could work for you.
Previous participants on the scheme have signed up for some of the following reasons, to:
- Develop managerial or supervisory skills.
- Assist with specific goals, such as achieving academic promotion.
- Help define future career goals more clearly.
- Discuss ways of balancing research and teaching.
- Learn more about the way the University functions, and possible career routes available.

- Get a different perspective on a specific work-related problem.
- Consider how to increase the number of research papers you write and get accepted.
