A new mentoring service for women starting out as interim managers has been launched by business forum, InterimWomen.
The aim of the mentoring service, which is free to use, is to guide new interim managers through any issues they may have in their new careers and provide tips and advice on marketing and networking as well as offering users invaluable insight into the mentors’ own experiences working in the field.
"Mentoring is an essential part of career development in any business, but it is particularly useful in interim management," said Marta Matajz, chair of InterimWomen.
"Starting out as an Interim is a big step – leaving behind any permanent role can be a big risk and new interim managers need guidance about how to get started and to learn about the realities of working as an Interim Manager. Our experienced mentors will provide advice and a great sounding board for new interims to ensure that the leap into the interim world is not too daunting."
Interim Managers can apply online for a mentor through the Interim Women website www.interimwomen.com. Mentoring is offered either face-to-face or by email and telephone.
