Early Career Network: Building transferable skills for a post-COVID world

Our Early Career Network brings together future leaders who are graduates, apprentices and high potential individuals with up to ten years of work experience, from a range of WIG member organisations. The network will help you build connections with your peers, and develop the skills and knowledge to move ahead in your career.

As we begin to look towards COVID recovery, uncertainty remains around what the future of the workplace may look like. Learn how you can best prepare for this world as we hear from Dominic Arthur, Cabinet Office, to discuss their career journey, what skills have benefited them the most in their career and what transferable skills they think will be particularly important in a post-COVID world.

Join us live to:

  • Learn about the cross-sector career paths of our speakers and what skills have best benefitted them during their own journeys
  • Discover what skills will be particularly important for you in a post-COVID world
  • Gain insight into how you can best build these skills while working from home to help further your career
