Mentoring

The IIA-Australia Mentoring Program is committed to providing valuable advice and insights to internal auditors at all stages of their careers. We match mentees with suitable mentors and support them in their relationship during the term of the program.

Why get a Mentor? 

  • Helps build and develop your future career
  • Network with great minds and experts from the internal audit community;
  • Allows you to discuss your professional strengths and challenges with experienced professionals outside of your organisation; and
  • Gain valuable insights into the internal auditing profession.

Why become a Mentor? 

  • Share your experience and insight to help young internal auditors make the most of their career;
  • Enhance your skills – mentoring allows you to strengthen your leadership skills by assisting individuals from different backgrounds and with different personality types;
  • Achieve a sense of accomplishment knowing that you are giving back to the internal auditing community;
  • Network with other accomplished Mentors; and
  • Make a positive difference to a young internal auditor’s career.
