Women from financial service backgrounds are incredibly sought after by organisations wishing to increase diversity across their boards. Whether as a Trustee in a third sector charity or a Non-Exec Director in the private sector, there has never been a better time to take that first (or second or third!) step towards building your board career. We are here to help you succeed.

This third in a series of three linked events* provides a direct introduction to organisations currently recruiting for board positions and offers you the chance to have an individual pre-application chat. This is an opportunity to network, to get a first foot through the door or simply to practice your pitch in a real life situation with a recruiting organisation.

Our incredible previous panel members will be there again to network with, to help you prepare for your slot and/or to discuss any other applications you may be wishing to progress. Pre-preparation will be required for this event.

Format:

Up to 4 organisations present on the night (tbc no later than 4 weeks prior to the event)
