Agile working has long been embraced by many businesses, it can take many forms, including earlier or later start and finish times, working remotely, consolidated hours (usually where the hours worked over five days are condensed into four longer days), term-time only work and/or working over the weekends rather than just during the traditional working week.
There is a well-used quote that pretty much sums up the power of mentoring. “If You Want To Go Fast, Go Alone. If You Want To Go Far, Go Together.” You may hear repeatedly that gaining a mentor can accelerate your career success; from having a champion that can support you, to someone who is who you want to be in the future.
