become a mentor

australia's leading property mentoring program

Mentors encourage the professional and personal development of a mentee through knowledge-sharing, industry expertise and experience while simultaneously enhancing their leadership skills.

Mentors must have a minimum of 15 years’ industry experience, have leadership and management experience, possess excellent communication skills, and have a desire to contribute to the future of the property industry and its members. You must also be representative of and interested in demonstrating the ‘values’ of the Mentoring Program. Mentors must also agree to commit to at least a one-hour meeting per month for the duration of the 12-month program.

I have been involved in the Property Council Mentoring Program in Victoria for many years as a mentor and advisory board member and I highly recommend it. I have delighted in observing or participating in countless successful mentor/mentee relationships, sometimes developing into lifelong friendships. Being a mentor to our up and coming stars is hugely satisfying and is a wonderful opportunity to give something back to this amazing industry.

our difference

From the beginning, we set out to deliver a program that wasn’t simply another industry mentoring program. The success of all participants, and in turn our industry, is our goal and the primary differences that ensure we are successful are:

  • the Mentoring Program is open to all genders and career stages, and from the full breadth from our membership across Australia;
  • the matching of mentees and mentors is based on psychometric assessment of applicants;
  • we strive for a high caliber of mentors at senior management and executive level;
  • one-on-one mentoring sessions are supported by a structured calendar of other networking and development opportunities, and;
  • the Mentoring Program is overseen by an Advisory Committee, which you can read more about here.

for your employer

As an industry mentoring program, we believe there are significant advantages over and above those of a workplace program, including: 

  • greater industry awareness and knowledge amongst participants;
  • exposure to a range of specific industry career pathways; 
  • access to unique industry data and trends;
  • development of capacity within the property industry. 

For employers of mentors, involving leaders in the Mentoring Program can motivate senior staff to contribute to the property industry in addition to their everyday contribution.
