Mentorship with Ficos World

What do we do?

We help you fulfil your potential through mentoring programmes, events and resources.

This could help you learn more about what jobs you’d like to do, help you apply to them, or help you your existing projects for creative career goals.

How can mentoring help you?

Our mentoring programmes will give you mentor already working in your chosen industry. You can work with them on whatever you need support with.

They can teach you about the industry and roles that exist, help you grow your professional network, support your skill development and help you find work.

How our programmes work

Our programmes run over a structured period, and last from 16 weeks to 6 months, and are free for all mentees.

You don’t need to be working to apply, our programmes are designed to help you at whatever stage in your career you are.

We run a range of programmes with different organisations. In our matching process, we will always work to give you a mentor to complement your ambitions. They may not always have the exact experience you are looking for, but their skills, experience and network can help you develop in your chosen field.

About our Mentor Network

Our network will match you up with a mentor who has been through the same journey you are setting out on, and who can help you along the way. Our mentors volunteer their time specifically to help you, so please make the most of this opportunity and don't hesitate contact us and sign up!

Mentoring can help you change your trajectory - by helping get you into the university or career you are aiming for, helping you with exams or your CV, or anything else you would like advice on. Our mentor network is also a really valuable way to build personal connections and meet people in your chosen industry from a young age.

We are always seeking mentors for the network - if you are a professional or entrepeneur and have some time to spare, please consider joining the network by getting in touch with us!


Our foundation has helped a huge number of individuals over the years; please read some of their stories below.

"My name is Alex Kenlock a 28 year old record label owner.
Ficosworld impacted my life massively at the age of 19 by not only giving me a platform to truly express myself, but also mentorship and life skills in which are still ever present to this day.
Ficosworld changed my perspective on who I am. It brought out the dormant but innate leadership abilities within me which in turn lead to the positive impact of thousands of other young individuals with a similar back ground to myself."
