A free opportunity to learn some vital skills/knowledge - listening, objective setting, asking open questions, setting up your own in house system - via a mentoring skills workshop.
This is open to anyone with over five years experience in the industry, from any discipline. The one2one team have trained 200 of our brightest and best of the great and the good and we are always looking for new people.
