ShortList is a free weekly magazine published in the United Kingdom. The magazine has the biggest circulation of any men's lifestyle magazine in Britain. ShortList revolutionised British publishing when it launched in 2007, the first upmarket men's weekly to tap into a previously neglected but large audience of smart British urban men.
Our mentors have signed up to offer you guidance, advice and support on life and the big stuff. From the lows, such as illness, bereavement or addiction, to the highs, like caring for a new baby or starting a new relationship.
Learn from those who have 'been there done that' and can give you the benefit of their personal perspective through mentoring. From getting help on how to find a job from someone who works in your field; careers advice from someone who’s actually doing the job you aspire to, or maybe you have a business idea you need a bit of help in getting off the ground.
Mentors can help you work out issues around your education, skills and training. Mentors are not professional advisors and don't make specific recommendations, but can help using the benefit of their own personal experiences. Whether you're making a big choice early in life or a big change later in life you can probably find someone here who has a helpful perspective.
We believe that mentoring can help deal with a crisis amongst young men. Boys are slipping way behind girls in education at all levels, and as they grow into young men are increasingly experiencing persistent problems such as unemployment, depression, addiction and lack of direction in their working lives. At the same time, there is a dearth of male role models in the public eye, and many men who have 'been there and done that' do not feel that they could be mentors or are worthy of being mentors. At a time when support and counselling services are being cut, this campaign will tackle these issues head on by encouraging our readers to think about the next generation and how we can support them by being active role models and mentors.

I cleaned it out
Sowed it up
Planted a seed
