Welcome to the Melbourne Water mentoring program

Are you interested in learning from the experiences of others at Melbourne Water? Do you want guidance on how to learn, develop and shape your career through the real world experience of someone else? Why not become a mentee. For mentors, it’s an opportunity to give back and develop others at Melbourne Water. We’ve designed this program to empower both mentees and mentors to connect and grow.

How do I find the mentee/mentor that is right for me?

Whether you are a mentor or mentee, the first thing to do once we have registered you into the program is to make sure that your profile is complete. It is important to make sure you are clear about the skills, experience and goals you want to develop, as a mentee, or that you can offer as a mentor through the mentoring partnership.

Having a detailed profile will really help when it comes to finding the right mentee or mentor for you.

You can also use information in the resources hub or contact
mentoring@melbournewater.com.au if you need more help with finding the right mentee/mentor.

How much time will I need to commit to my mentoring partnership?

You can discuss with your mentoring partner how often you’d like to catch up; however, we recommend a quick coffee catch up / meeting at least once every 4 to 6 weeks to get the full benefits of mentorship.

How long the mentoring partnership continues for is also something to discuss with your mentoring partner. It will also depend on the type of goals you set. Generally, we would recommend a minimum commitment of 6 months.

Where do I go for support?

You will find lots of information and help in the resources hub.

If you need additional support or you can’t find the help that you need in the resources hub then you can contact the Melbourne Water mentoring team by email at mentoring@melbournewater.com.au.
