Wise Ones

Wise & Young’s Mission

Wise & Young is an intergenerational bridge of leadership development. Our social aspiration is to provide Europe with the next generation of leaders. We do so by linking young ambition with seasoned experience.

What we ask of you

We ask you to open up your network to Wise & Young and help us mold tomorrow’s leaders. Instead of embarking on short-term projects alone, we hope you can share your expertise, knowledge and opportunities. As a Wise One you mentor two young professionals who are eager to work with you. Be part of the future, shape its leaders, and earn a bit of money on the side.

What we are looking for

We are looking for seasoned professionals who have stood at the helm of organizations, both in the private and public sectors. You are retired, or about to retire, but you never see yourself stop working. You have a passion for what you do, and you are eager to share it, along with your expertise and knowledge.

What we offer

Wise and Young provides a retirement package for the restless. We rely on your expertise whilst you can rely on us to do the rest. We handle the administration which allows you to fully focus on your own projects, and connect you with your peers who share your timeless endurance, and quality.

Upon the request of a client, you will be selected together with two Young Ones, who you will mentor. The bulk of the money earned will be shared between you and the Young Ones. Wise & Young only asks for a small percentage of the fees.
