PRIME Cymru Mentors

We believe that mentoring is a key way for our clients to be helped and guided into business creation and employment. Mentoring activities are undertaken mainly through one-to-one meetings, but also through telephone discussions and email exchanges. Do you have what we are looking for in a mentor?

PRIME Cymru is always seeking to recruit additional Volunteer Mentors with experience of business, finance, recruitment, education and the voluntary sector to provide a matched service to clients across Wales. Mentors join us as volunteers from all types of career and business backgrounds, offering valuable knowledge, experience and expertise. Their help and encouragement is of great help to people who may want to earn their own living, but may be struggling a little.
The PRIME Cymru Mentoring Scheme MentorNow! has been established to add to the range and scope of professional support that can be offered to people aged 50 and over who wish to:
  • Return to employment after a period of inactivity
  • Enter self-employment
  • Find education and training opportunities
  • Develop their self confidence
  • Become engaged with their community through volunteering
TEG PROFILE PICTeg Bevan from Pencoed, Bridgend has been a PRIME Cymru mentor for over 6 years, helping a number of clients and business start-ups including Nicola Munduz – a single mother of three – from Maesteg.

Teg offered Nicola one-to-one support when she set out to develop her interest in faith art into a small business – Art from the Heart. She now works on private commissions, exhibits in galleries and runs workshops for local community groups.

Teg is convinced about the benefits of mentoring the over 50s.

“I get so much satisfaction in seeing mature people gain new self-esteem as they find fresh purpose in their lives. The PRIME Cymru mentoring scheme is the perfect way – a little bit of time can help people flourish. Nicola is an excellent example of this. Hopefully more people will be inspired by the results of our work and come forward to MentorNow!”
