Do you have what it takes to be a Boardroom Apprentice?

Malvern Editorial 27th Oct, 2022   0

ASPIRING board members across Worcester and Malvern are being sought as part of an innovative UK-wise scheme.

UK Boardroom Apprentice is a unique board learning, development and placement programme which enables those who would like to serve on a public or third sector board to learn and gain the experience they need to take that step.

It seeks to enable a wider diversity of individuals to play their part within boardrooms, allowing those without board experience to enhance their knowledge and understanding through in-depth learning and support

Applications for the programme are open until November 14 to people of all ages 16 years old and above and all backgrounds and abilities.

Being a Boardroom Apprentice requires a significant personal commitment, most of which will be during the working day, along with some evenings and weekends.

Since its inception in 2017, the scheme has seen 277 individuals across Northern Ireland embark on their Boardroom Apprentice journey.

Eileen Mullan, Boardroom Apprentice founder, said: “Boardroom Apprentice was created to deliver diversity, create change, and realise aspirations.

“Our vision is simple – to bridge the gap between aspiration and reality. Successful applicants will have the opportunity to join a host board for a year to learn how they can bring fresh perspectives and diverse thinking to boardrooms across the UK.

“I would encourage anyone in Worcester who is eligible and aspires to serve on a board in the public or third sector to apply.”
