Three Finance Leadership Programme taster events have been organised in Chelmsford, Ipswich and Norwich throughout January to provide free career development support for ambitious finance professionals in the East of England.
The events will be run by professional recruitment specialists Pure in collaboration with Grant Thornton. Aspiring finance professionals looking to step up to Finance Director level are encouraged to attend the evening sessions which will provide business insight, leadership development and the chance to hear from high profile finance leaders.
Tom Earl, Associate Director at Pure, said: “The taster sessions will be themed around the role of Finance Leaders exploring the skills and experience needed to help you develop your skill set to further help you progress and add value within your organisation. These events aim to be an extremely valuable development opportunity as a standalone session but also a great introduction to our overall Finance Leadership Programme which features interactive roundtable sessions throughout the year.”
The Finance Leadership Programme was launched by Pure and Grant Thornton in 2015 to provide support and development opportunities for aspiring finance leaders looking to step up to director level. It has been created as a forum where like-minded senior professionals can get together to share experiences, hear from those already in high profile leadership roles, gain new skills and to spend time on their personal development.
Tom Earl, who has recruited finance roles for over 10 years, added: “The move to become a finance leader can be one of the hardest steps to take on the career ladder. Our aim is to help provide ambitious finance professionals with support to develop the soft skills and capabilities needed to become effective leaders. A wider support network like this programme can play a critical role in assisting ambitious and talented individuals to reach their full potential in a relaxed environment.”
