Young women in Scotland are being offered the chance to be mentored by the First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon.

Ms Sturgeon announced that she was joining the Young Scot mentoring scheme, yesterday on International Women's Day.

She said the advice she'd received when she was starting out had been invaluable:

Now that I've got to the position of First Minister, I think it's important that I give something back and use my experience, even if just in a small way, to help other people at an early stage of their career.

– Nicola Sturgeon, First Minister

You can hear more of her interview here and to see if you're eligible for that mentor scheme, there are more details on the Young Scot website.
