Do you have what it takes to be a Risk Management Mentor?
The Public Sector Pilot Mentorship Programme
(In Partnership with IRMSA)

Mentor Application

  • Are you a seasoned professional wanting to be a mentor?
  • Do you want to give back to the profession?
  • Do you want to help grow the talent pipeline?
    .... then this funded programme is for you!

The Institute of Risk Management South Africa (IRMSA) and National Treasury will be launching a mentorship programme to primarily identify and nurture the potential of identified candidates. The mentorship programme is envisaged to link seasoned risk professionals with mentees either currently registered to sit the Institute of Risk Management South Africa (IRMSA) professional board examination or is wanting to attain professionalisation. ...

Mentoring is an indefinite, relationship based activity with several specific but wide ranging goals and may not have to be a formal process. The mentor is a facilitator who works with either an individual or a group of people over a time period. The agenda is open and continues to evolve over the longer term. The objective will therefore seek to build wisdom – the ability to apply skills, knowledge and experience to new situations and processes. Further, the objective of the mentor will be to act as an ‘accountability partner’ who works in their mentee’s best interests. It is envisaged that he or she will bring a new approach to either a specific skill or an entire career.

The success of the programme will be dependent on clearly defined objectives, an agreed plan of action and act as a replacement for conventional training. Therefore, mentors will be required to attend a totally funded formal training programme for a period of three (3) days.
