How it works
Register your interest in just 2 minutes (via the link below). We’ll get in touch with our initial survey that includes questions about your current situation and the areas you would like to develop and/or provide support in.
Book in for a call
We’d like to get to know you and dive into your survey answers to better understand the areas you can give or would like to receive support in. This is a short 15 minute call and must be completed prior to matching.
Start your mentorship
We’ll find you a mentor and/or mentee match, then it’s over to you. Organise a time to meet with your mentor and/or mentee and decide on how you would like your mentorship to work. Start your sessions and get supported by us throughout the 3 month period with regular check-ins, helpful resources and community events.
Loved it? Get rematched
Once the 3 month period is up, you’ll have the option to be rematched with another suitable mentor and/or mentee.
Make the right connection
Our software makes matches based on an alignment of personal and professional skills and communication style. You’ll be matched with someone who we know you’ll get on well with and can learn from.
We shape our mentoring program around near-peer mentorship, meaning you will be matched with someone who is just a few steps in front of or behind you. This way the advice remains relevant and relatable.
OneUpOneDown facilitates the mentor-matching process and maintains engagement throughout the relationship. We support our community to become comfortable and confident mentors and mentees.
You’ll learn a lot about yourself and others through mentorship and our wealth of supporting resources. 3 months of highly focused mentorship means you’ll focus on one area of development and make rapid progress towards your goal.
