How we are changing our ways of delivery in light of the COVID-19 situation

WIG secondees are moving to a default remote working set-up. We are working with all hosts to ensure that transitions are being adequately managed, that secondees are being supported in order for them to fulfil their placement, and that hosts also get what they need from it.

In relation to mentoring, we will conduct our introductory meetings virtually and advise all mentors and mentees to do the same - whether at initial chemistry meetings or otherwise. WIG will support from a technical standpoint, where possible.   

Finally, on Non-Executive Director and Trustee recruitment, we will be working with both existing and future partners to ensure that technology can be harnessed effectively – whether in the context of our sifting processes, or at final interview stage.

WIG’s Talent Team has real breadth and depth of recruitment experience. Whether you are an organisation looking to recruit, or an individual looking to build your career, we can help and advise. 

Here at WIG we focus on Non-Executive and Secondment recruitment. That means that we can  we can help your organisation identify the right Non-Executive Directors or Trustees. We can also help you find the right person to undertake a specific project for up to 2 years.

When WIG's email came through with details on the Defra role it really caught my attention; the role was perfect for me.

Becoming a Non-Executive or Trustee

Increasingly, senior leaders from all sectors are looking to take on Non-Executive responsibilities earlier in their careers. Whereas the portfolio phase is an established stage of the life cycle, senior leaders in executive roles can also benefit enormously from taking on Non-Executive and Trustees roles alongside their executive responsibilities. This brings perspective and insight to a variety of corporate governance and leadership issues that can truly shape exceptional leaders. It also brings important learning and shared wisdom into other sectors and a sense of fulfilment of giving to the public or voluntary sectors. WIG has helped match more than 350 public sector organisations and charities with the right person.
