The YCW London chapter is proud to host the YCW London Mentorship Programme, an enriching initiative that links early-career young professionals and students with esteemed mentors. Our mentors are a group of experienced China-professionals from a variety of fields, such as finance, policy, business, journalism, technology, and research.
Running annually from February to January, our programme provides a platform for mentors and mentees to engage in regular discussions, exploring career opportunities, aspirations, and personal growth. Previous mentees have gone on to secure jobs and academic postings in Greater China, as well as join China-focused organisations in the UK.
Our call for mentee applications opens in December each year, welcoming individuals based in and around London with a passion for building a China-related career. If you have any questions or wish to be considered as one of our YCW mentors, please write to our Mentorship Director, Hugo Briggs (h[dot]briggs[at]youngchinawatchers[dot]com).
