AMI reveals plans for mortgage industry mentoring scheme

The Association of Mortgage Intermediaries (AMI) has announced it is developing a sector-wide scheme to connect mortgage professionals with leaders in the industry for mentoring.

The scheme, announced on the day that marks International Mentoring Day, would see aspiring and existing professionals paired with industry experts for one-to-one mentoring and reverse mentoring opportunities.

Mentoring programmes allow people to take ownership of their own personal and professional development, the AMI suggested, as well as increase confidence, can help improve diversity and understanding and provide great opportunities for knowledge sharing.

The use of mentoring programmes was one of the recommendations to come from the trade body’s 2021 Viewpoint report on diversity, inclusion and equity in the mortgage industry, to help address the barriers to career progression.

Chief executive at the AMI, Robert Sinclair, commented: “Creating open minds, wider opportunities and building confidence is a core part of any mentoring programme. Identifying how you can find the right roles and develop is at the heart of a fulfilling work experience.

“AMI through its workinginmortgages.org.uk website and soon to be launched mentoring programme hopes to build new pathways for a wider group of people to see our sector as a great place to work.”
