Do I need a coach or a mentor?


  • Relationship has a set duration
  • More structured with regular scheduled meetings
  • Short term and focussed on specific development areas/issues or goals and work
  • Your coach does not need direct experience of your job (unless the coaching is skills focussed)


  • Ongoing relationship that can last for a long time
  • Can be more informal with meetings when the mentee needs some space and time to think, guidance or support
  • Mentor is usually a more experienced person working in the same sector
  • Focus is on long-term career and personal development
  • Agenda is set by the mentee and takes a broader view of the person.
