A Kaleidoscope Mentor Program Mentor is a professional who provides support, industry related guidance and advice to a skilled migrant to help them build professional networks, increase their knowledge of recruitment practices and have a better understanding of their profession locally to secure well-matched employment.

In return, you will benefit from:
- Developing your own mentoring, communication and leadership skills
