CIWM has launched a mentoring platform for its members as part of a programme of work to support career progression and skills and encourage CIWM Members to progress through its grades of membership towards Chartered status.
The new platform, called CIWM Mentoring, enables members who would like the support of a mentor to connect in an easy and confidential way with experienced CIWM Members and Fellows who are volunteering their time and expertise to provide advice, guidance and coaching to support professional development.
It is designed to support a range of career objectives from developing leadership or communications skills, to finding effective solutions to specific work challenges or to support progress towards achieving Chartered status.
“Now more than ever, new and improved skills are a high priority for resource and waste professionals as the sector continues to evolve and play its part in serving and protecting communities and the environment while also delivering on the net zero agenda,” says CIWM’s chief executive Sarah Poulter.
“Connecting with a supportive mentor can be a powerful way of developing your knowledge, expanding your skillset, building your confidence and, ultimately, boosting your career. We are excited to be able to offer this benefit to our Members, particularly during these challenging times.”
