 Handle Recruitment - Creative Breakthrough

THE AIM: to build confidence and drive career progression. 

As the creative sectors boom at twice the rate of the economy, it’s disappointing that resolving diversity and inclusion within the industry is still such a work in progress. Less formal than coaching, mentoring is a sharing of knowledge and experience over a series of meetings. 

Creative breakthrough was launched to support exceptional people, from underrepresented groups, working within the creative industries.

Creative Breakthrough - the stages unpacked


Mentorship is a personal developmental relationship in which a more experienced or more knowledgeable person helps to guide a less experienced or less knowledgeable person. It is about an ongoing relationship of learning, dialogue, and challenge.

MENTORS: help the rising stars

Are you already a senior leader in a creative business?  What can you do to support others on their journey? Share your challenges, exchange ideas, help others to navigate their paths and gain recognition as an expert in your field.

MENTEES: are you struggling to navigate your career

Here is a great opportunity to get proactive and take responsibility for your own career progression. Connect with those who’ve been there and done it.  Hear about their experiences and learn how they tackled situations. Then go forth with confidence and succeed. 

Thank you for the interest you have shown in the Creative Breakthrough Mentoring Programme. The current period of disruption has made it a little challenging for some of our mentors and mentees to fully embrace the programme and our current cohort of mentees tell us that they much prefer face-to-face meetings with their mentors. 

As a result we have decided to press ‘pause’ on the programme at this uncertain time but please do not hesitate to complete the enquiry form as we look forward to introducing the next groups later in 2021.

During the 6-12 month period, all mentees and mentors are invited to regular networking events and self-development workshops to enhance all collaborative learning opportunities.

If you are looking to become a mentor or mentee, or simply interested in discussing how you could support our Creative Breakthrough programme please get in touch!​
