BUFDG Mentoring Scheme

The BUFDG Mentoring scheme is open to all BUFDG members and aims to pair mentors with mentees to develop specific areas them to develop and achieve specific self-determined goals and expertise. Being involved in the scheme either as a mentor or mentee will also help you increase your awareness of different aspects of the H E environment, connect with different colleagues across the sector, and build friendships. In the majority of matches, it is envisaged that mentors and mentees will be from different institutions. This also helps to encourage cross-sector networking and engagement, another key objective of the scheme. So, whether you: work in academia, estates, finance, governance, HR, international development, planning, procurement, or research; have worked in the university sector for some time or are new to it; need a refresher, or; are simply curious about tax and universities, we hope that you will find the new guide useful. And please forward this link to anyone who needs a little bit more background, such as academics, board members or those who are simply curious about tax and universities!
