become a MENTOR

Mentors encourage the professional and personal development of a mentee through knowledge-sharing, industry expertise and experience while simultaneously enhancing their leadership skills.

Here are some of the primary benefits of participation in the Property Council’s Mentoring Program as a mentor: 

  • Contribute to the industry as a leader, building our future leaders.

  • Benefit from the reciprocity in mentoring.

  • Connect with a cohort of mentors across the country.

The closing date for applications was 5:00pm AEST Thursday 29 April 2021. We recommend you allow plenty of time to prepare and submit your application by the closing date. You will be notified of the outcome of your application by Friday 28 May 2021. Mentors must be Property Council of Australia members.


From the beginning, we set out to deliver a program that wasn’t simply another industry mentoring program. The success of all participants, and in turn our industry, is our goal and the primary differences that ensure we are successful are:

  • The Program is open to all genders and career stages, and from the full breadth from our membership across Australia 
  • Matching of mentees and mentors is based on psychometric assessment of applicants 
  • We strive for a high calibre of mentors at senior management and executive level 
  • One-on-one mentoring sessions are supported by a structured calendar of other networking and development opportunities 
  • The Program is overseen by an Advisory Board, which you can read more about here 


As an industry mentoring program, we believe there are significant advantages over and above those of a workplace program, including: 

  • Greater industry awareness and knowledge among participants 
  • Exposure to a range of specific industry career pathways 
  • Access to unique industry data and trends 
  • Development of capacity within the property industry 

For employers of mentors, involving leaders in the Program can motivate senior staff to contribute to the property industry in addition to their everyday contribution. 


There is no fee to be a mentor in the program.
