The Pensions Management Institute (PMI) has launched a mentoring and development programme, which it will deliver in conjunction with the Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM).
The programme will run from 12 months from March 2020 to March 2021.
It will assign individuals to mentors based on their profile and mentors and mentees will have the opportunity to connect throughout the year, with meetings taking place at least every two months.
Mentees will also be required to complete the ILM's MyLeadership Programme.
Mentors will be required to be a fellow or associate member of the PMI with significant mentoring or leadership experience. Mentees are required to be a member of the PMI.
Commenting on the launch, PMI chief executive Gareth Tancred said: "We hope that this support and learning framework will give individuals the opportunity to develop new skills and knowledge, as well as guidance on professional development and career enhancement from someone beyond their immediate professional network."
The programme has been sponsored by B&CE mastertrust The People's Pension. B&CE chief sales and marketing officer Roy Porter said: "We are delighted to be supporting the PMI's mentoring and development programme as we believe it will contribute to the continuation of the highest industry standards, help with knowledge transfer and encourage collaboration within the sector."
Candidates can register to join the programme and find more information here. Applications close on 31 January 2020.
