About the Property Council of Australia Mentor Program

The Property Council of Australia is the leading property “voice” in Victoria. The advocacy work undertaken on the members’ behalf has influenced many Government policies such as reduction in land tax.  As well as informing Government policy, the Property Council events are addressed by industry opinion leaders and thought leaders.

The Property Industry is listed as the largest industry in Victoria and the second largest employer in the state; it is an exciting time to be a part of the industry.  The Property Council aims to support the industry’s employees across the state, giving them unparalleled access to research, networking and education opportunities.

The Property Council Mentor Program is positioned to become the leading industry program of its kind. Building on the success and lessons of previous programs run through the Victorian Division, the next generation of the Mentor Program will have a broader reach for both Mentors and Mentees and the capacity to engage a higher number of Mentee and Mentor matches.

The Mentor program has been developed by a dedicated committee that bring together a broad range of industry and Mentor program experience.  As a result, the Program and Mentee/Mentor selection process has been carefully managed with the key benefits to participants in mind.
