This year the Project, which is supported by PRWeek, will have around 20 per cent more mentors than last year's inaugural scheme.

There is also greater diversity of mentors, with more from BAME backgrounds, more women, and more from outside London.

The Creative Mentoring Project aims to encourage and nurture creative talent in UK PR.

Successful applicants will be matched with one of our contingent of mentors - all experienced PR executive creative directors and creative directors - who will offer guidance through face-to-face meetings and other forms of contact.

The offer is open to UK-based PR professionals with a minimum of three years’ experience who see themselves as a creative director in the future.

The scheme is due to start in early October.
