Applications are now open for mentors and mentees to be a part of one of the leading mentoring schemes for young professionals working in insurance!
2021 looks to build on the great success and turnout of past schemes, where over 350 people have participated in the mentoring programme.
Why be an NGIN Mentor or Mentee?
The aim is to provide a personal development relationship between an experienced NGIN member (mentor) and an industry newcomer (mentee), providing a platform to learn, network and share knowledge with one another.
NGIN will hold networking events
Mentors and mentees will be from different companies
Professionals will represent a range of business lines, such as Underwriting, Claims, Loss Adjusting, Risk Management, Placement Broking and more
The mentor will be able to guide the mentee, providing professional development, industry insight and technical advice
The mentoring programme provides an opportunity for our more experienced members to give something back to the insurance community by passing their experience on to others. This will be a two way relationship with both parties benefiting and developing as a result of the programme.
There will be a "speed mentoring" launch event, kindly hosted by RPC, where prospective mentors and mentees can meet on 17 February 2021
The event will begin at 18.00 via Zoom. A meeting link will be sent to all attendees once places have been confirmed.
Welcome address and guest speaker: 18.00
Speed mentoring sessions: 18:20
"Networking" and questions: 19:15 onwards
The duration of the programme is 3 months
Following the event, NGIN will pair up mentors and mentees and put participants in contact
NGIN will provide training packs to the mentors - so don't worry if you don't have any mentoring experience but would still like to take part!
Further details on the programme will be provided to those who choose to participate
As a guide: mentees will have approx. 0-2 Years industry experience and mentors will have 3 years or more
Closing date for applications is close of business 12 February 2021, please note that spaces are limited and are allocated on a first come first serve basis

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Rubina Rahman - Mentee
NGIN mentoring programme was initially a curious sign up and I was pleasantly surprised. Joining this committee over others was particularly attractive because of the amount of forward opportunities the session created. Through NGIN’s mentoring event for instance, I met a few individuals working in the Innovation space who proved to be great engagement points when I decided to transition roles from underwriting to innovation recently. A second benefit of joining NGIN’s mentoring programme is the direct route it provides towards becoming a future committee member. In my observation mentorships are strongest when a mentee has a specific learning/skill need being addressed, naturally ‘clicks’ with their guide and there is a healthy level of vulnerability meaning no conversation is off limits.
Klara - Mentor
The speed mentoring event was a great success. My favourite part was to meet new people who have currently started working within insurance and help them to understand how the insurance market in London works. I really enjoyed helping people regarding realising their potential, inspire or motivate them
