Get your hands on a TIME scholarship, thanks to Cover-More

Cover-More has committed to funding a placement in the 34th intake of Travel Industry Mentor Experience’s (TIME) renowned mentoring program.

So if you’re looking to kick-start your career or give it a shove in the right direction, this is the perfect opportunity.

The travel insurer, which has been in the market for 30 years now, has given a lucky individual the chance to super-charge their career dreams and ambitions in the travel-tourism-hospitality industry.

“The travel industry is rapidly changing, but history remains a wise teacher. Access to experienced industry leaders has always provided invaluable insight and a springboard for aspiring and motivated employees. TIME provides just this kind of access.” Mike Stein, Cover-More’s Executive General Manager, Sales & Distribution (APAC) said.

“It’s win-win; we develop individuals and see them flourish, and by fostering a platform to share knowledge and experience, we’re future-proofing the industry.

“Cover-More is very proud to continue to support the Travel Industry Mentor Experience (TIME) again in 2019.”

The TIME Program’s fees cover six months of dedicated, tailored mentoring from a strategically selected senior industry professional.

“We appreciate that some aspiring TIME applicants might not be able to fund their own participation,” Penny Spencer, founder of TIME said.

“As a not-for-profit, we work really hard to keep program costs down through sponsorships and the like.

“We encourage our supporters to consider funding a placement in the program to open it up to more leaders of the future.

“We’re absolutely thrilled about working with Cover-More on this wonderfully generous initiative.”

Interested individuals are encouraged to download a scholarship application form from the TIME website.

Scholarship applications for the 10 April intake close on 11 March 2019.
