Young Professional Buddy

Sharing your experiences with a recent graduate, listening, challenging and helping them to make the most of their opportunities and progress in their careers.

Are you a Young Professional who has entered the workplace within the last three to five years?  Would you be willing to take the time to share your experiences with a recent graduate?  

We're looking for young graduates who have recently entered their first job to become a 'Buddy' in order to support students who are transitioning from education into early career development and toward a successful future.

The main focus will be on sharing your experiences and, as someone who has recently made this transition, you should be able to empathise with what they are going through.

Each pairing is likely to last around 12-18 months and there is the the potential for the role to transition in to a formal IET Mentor role.

Training and resources are available to support individuals in this role.
