Mentor Exchange

This programme matches experienced members with early career Chartered Accountants.

As mentors, members of more than ten years and with relevant skills can offer advice, information and guidance to assist another CA's personal and professional development.

Mentees in turn develop a new professional relationship, meeting with their mentor to discuss their goals, career progression and skill development needs.

Mentees must have been a member for less than five years to be eligible for the programme. Mentor Exchange is run annually and is designed to run for six months with any ongoing relationship left up to the participants.

The programme is currently available in Adelaide, Auckland, Brisbane, Christchurch, Hamilton, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, London, Melbourne, Perth, Singapore, Sydney and Wellington.
