Thank you for your interest in becoming a THRIVE mentee. Please read this information very carefully.

The Career Mentoring Team will review your form and confirm your eligibility and mentor match within 5 - 7 working days. The form has 5 main sections: contact details and eligibility; motivations, preferences and aspirations; your development needs; personal details; and commitment to the scheme. 

This form should take 10-15 minutes to complete and you can save and return to it if needed. Gathering all of your information now means that we avoid asking for more throughout the year and helps the scheme run smoothly.

The team will keep your information secure and use it to: ensure you meet the criteria to become a mentee and to help us review your match; enable your mentor and the Career Mentoring Team to contact you; enable us to monitor, evaluate and report on the success of the scheme to the University of Reading Management and interested academic researchers using anonymised, aggregated information and allow us to promote the scheme. 

To ensure the accuracy of the data we hold we may check your registration details against details held within University systems, for example to check we have the correct student/staff ID’s and contact details for you.

Should you have any questions about the scheme, or the use and handling of your data, then please contact us via email at or call on 0118 378 8359.
