Legal advice sector leadership development programme now open for applications

Recruitment is now underway for CASS Business School's leadership development programme for senior leaders in the legal advice sector.
Strengthening the Voluntary Sector

The programme seeks to nurture individual leadership talent, but also wishes to equip leaders with the expertise to develop innovative, sustainable organisations, and to be a catalyst for positive change across the wider sector. It will offer a set of rich learning opportunities, intended to take participants out of the work place and provide a rare opportunity for immersion in new ideas and experiences to stretch leadership thinking.

The programme is for those who are at the top of their organisations with the greatest influence:

  • For chief executives (i.e. the most senior employees who are directly accountable to their boards), and senior leaders (i.e. those who report to chief executives) who manage teams of staff.
  • Who work in voluntary sector organisations that can demonstrate a history & commitment to the provision of independent advice on social welfare law, and that employ a lawyer or someone undertaking complex legal case work.
  • From a range of lived experiences and backgrounds, from a broad range of types and sizes of organisation across England & Wales.

This programme starts late May 2017 and is free to attend, with accommodation and national travel also covered.

The deadline for applications is 13 April 2017.
