XSectorMentor is the ABC of mentoring


XSM is available to all your employees and extend to all those associated with your company, whether that’s volunteers, Trustees or Non-Executive Directors.

As such, it is inclusive, diverse and accessible.


XSM extends your reach beyond company, professional and sector boundaries.

XSM connect professionals to share knowledge, ideas and develop professionally, on a global scale.


Choice means being mentee-led.

Mentees select their mentor using our unique compatibility assessment powered by proven psychometrics.

Why shouldn’t a lawyer be mentored by a Vet, or a Charity director by an Accountant, or a Surgeon by a Customer Service Advisor?

Mentoring made easy

Our 3 step process is design to be simple:

1. Once your company is on-boarded, we provide you with support to launch your programme including: Promotional video, QR Code linked to online Participant registration form, emails features, 2hrs advisory support.

Invite participants. Review their progress. View their insights and Evaluations.

2. Our matching algorithm is based on factors including availability, capacity, goals areas of support and mentor types. We don't advocate force-matching of participants preferring to offer a shortlist of 3 mentors for the mentee to request the mentor they need rather than who may be available.

3. Once matched, mentoring can begin.

All mentors are trained either using our online, on demand materials or using live, virtual training from our ILM approved training partners, Rewards Training Scotland. The best results of mentoring come when mentors and mentees are trained.

We provide integrated record-keeping and messaging tools, as well as a unique Journal for participants to reflect on their mentor experience and areas for improvement.

Improving mentor practice makes better mentors and enables your programme to scale.

My Metrics

Your programme metrics are available 24/7 and provides useful data-drive insights as well as graphics that can be downloaded for reporting purposes.
