About the Role

Mentoring is a relationship that gives people the opportunity to share their professional and personal skills and experiences, and to grow and develop in the process.

This relationship grows over time, and is based on active listening, encouragement, constructive comments, openness, mutual trust, respect and willingness to learn and share.

An effective mentoring relationship can provide a unique opportunity for you to engage, learn and be challenged by an individual or organisation whose perspectives, experiences and areas of expertise are different to your own.

Become a mentor

Mentoring through LV offers an opportunity to strengthen your own leadership capabilities, reflect on your practice and gain benefit from seeing others develop new skills.

As an LV mentor, we will match you with a program participant, with the aim of further developing their individual, organisational and community leadership skills and capacity.

Your role is to support the participant with their personal and leadership growth for the duration of the program and where mutually agreed, beyond the program.

Some of our mentoring programs involve a match between a mentor and team, committee or Board – in some cases, they are whole-of-organisation.

In most cases, we anticipate that mentoring will be a commitment of around four hours per month.

We support mentoring relationships with resources, an induction and regular reflection opportunities – as well as a new LV Mentoring Community of Practice.

To join LV as mentor, you will need to meet the following criteria:

– Have experience relevant to the program in which you have expressed interest, as well as interest and experience in developing the leadership capabilities of others
– Commit to enter into a mentoring partnership agreement and to honour the mentoring work plan established with the mentee
– Be available to meet face-to-face with the mentee once per month (times and locations by agreement between mentor/mentee)
– Commit to upholding the confidentiality of the mentee and the LV Code of Ethics for Volunteers

Delivered in partnership with Knox City Council, this program is a leadership development program for up high-performing Band 5 and 6 staff.

The program commences late April and concludes in November, with timing of the mentoring relationship determined by the participant – with the option to coincide with the commencement of the program or at the mid-point or conclusion of the program.
