Mentoring Programme

The NZIM Mentoring Programme establishes a learning relationship between an experienced Mentor and Protégé. The NZIM Mentor pool is drawn from the Fellow and Associate Fellow members. This enables developing managers to tap into the very practical knowledge and experience of the Mentor. NZIM offers three levels of Mentoring service that enable individuals and organisations to choose an approach that matches their specific needs.


1. Individual Member Mentoring

An individual NZIM member can apply for a Mentor. They submit their CV and a short statement on what they are looking for in a Mentoring relationship then NZIM finds an appropriate match from their member database.

2. National / Regional Corporate Member Mentoring

An organisation may want a standard approach across the business with periodic evaluations and follow up. NZIM can provide Mentors in all New Zealand locations who have undergone the same high level of Mentor training. NZIM applies an in depth matching and quality control process as part of this service.

3. One Off Mentoring NZIM can provide Mentors for a specific one-off requirement for an individual or an organisation.
