RFG launch mentoring scheme

Rail Freight Group has launched a new Cross-Member Mentoring Scheme that aims to help develop rail freight skills across the sector, and support individuals with their own personal development.

The new programme, which will run through 2023, is open to anyone working in an RFG member company.  Mentees will be matched with mentors from different organisations who can support them in their development and increase their knowledge and understanding of the different areas of rail freight.

Maggie Simpson OBE, RFG Director General, said: “Our members span the economy, from ports to quarries, manufacturing to operations, commercial to legal.  We want to help people learn more about the different parts of rail freight, as well as supporting their development as individuals.  I would really encourage our members to sign up for this new scheme.”


Deanne Logan, Mentoring Programme Lead, said: “Mentoring is an incredibly powerful development opportunity, allowing knowledge-sharing and coaching to take place. Mentoring relationships can often shape our careers as they open up new connections and relationships, insight into other sectors and also into leadership and working styles.”
