A trainee accountant with Dafferns Chartered Accountants, Sophie Breeze joined the mentoring programme to gain an insight into how to grow as a young professional and develop her career.
“I’ve enjoyed meeting my mentor; the informal setting made it easy to chat and get to know each other. I’ve also met her at more formal networking events and having already developed the relationship has really helped on these occasions.
“I know I’m not alone in being a little intimidated at networking events and have now got some really good tips that I am putting into practice. I’ve also now got a useful contact who will always be a friendly face at these events.
“Developing a compelling CV is also important to me. My mentor has given me an insight into what employers look for so I know what areas I need to focus on and improve.”
