Mentoring is valuable to both mentees and mentors.
Mentors find the experience of helping another member rewarding as they help them to grow and 'address their own challenges, considering their relationships at work and thinking of the future'.
Associate members (AMRSC), Members (MRSC) and Fellows (FRSC), as well as anyone with RSciTech or RSci status, have the chance to become a mentee, working alongside an experienced mentor in their field. In addition, Members (MRSC) and Fellows (FRSC) have the opportunity to become a mentor, helping others take their professional development further.

What are the benefits of mentoring?
Being mentored has helped our mentees to:
- achieve greater clarity around their career goals and how to achieve them
- learn more about themselves
- gain greater self-confidence and self-belief
- pursue personal and professional development and practical learning
- improve relationships with their colleagues and their performance in their current role.
"It’s a great service and the mentor match you have made for me is perfect for my professional needs at this point in time.
