Bristol University Mentor Scheme
Director, Richard Lawrence, is sharing his professional knowledge, skills and experience by supporting the Bristol University Mentor Scheme.
This involves working with a student mentee for a year, helping them to set and achieve career goals, become aware of wider career opportunities and broaden their professional network.
Farhaan, a third year engineering undergraduate, recently attended the Robert West office for a mock interview and to spend time gathering a broader understanding of engineering.
"Mentor Richard Lawrence has supported me every step of the way in exploring the dream career that I wish to pursue with my future degree. His great desire in sharing the knowledge he has gained over many years has given me a strong foundation in continuously improving the UK's rail network as a future engineer. I feel I have been able to develop many real-world engineering skills with Richard and he has given me the confidence that I can make my dream career a reality. His down-to-earth and friendly approach makes him an ideal mentor. I will always keep in contact with him even after the programme!" Farhaan fed back.
