Leadership & Talent         

WIG’s Leadership & Talent teams delivers something different – an opportunity to experience another sector whilst expanding the range and breadth of your expertise.

Apply for a one-day seminar or one of our long-term programmes which are tailored for graduates, mid-level, women or senior leaders. Let us help you find a trustee position, non-executive board role, or a mentor perfectly suited to you at this point in your career. Gain experience in another sector, or bring a team on an organisational raid to discover another organisation’s solution to a shared problem. 

Whichever option works for you, this is a unique chance to build lasting, high-level networks in a cross-sector environment.

We have over 30 years’ experience of developing talented people. Find out how we can help you: explore the options on the right, see more information below or email us.

How we can help you:


For you

Thinking about developing and stretching yourself outside your comfort zone?  WIG is all about development with a difference – you will learn from and alongside peers from across the sectors.

Our cross-sector programmes provide a range of learning & development opportunities for high-potentials at all levels of the organisational structure. Along the way you will discover how things work in other sectors and organisations, what things are similar and what’s different, and get inspired with new ideas to try back in your everyday.

It starts with you and expands from there. Take charge of your development with WIG.

For your organisation

WIG helps organisations build pipelines of high-potential individuals. Our programmes develop people who understand the wider context, appreciate cultural distinctions, and know both how things are done and how to get things done in different organisational worlds.

WIG can work with you to build and sustain your leaders for the future.  By broadening the experience of your executives through leadership, management and learning development opportunities, we can help your organisation meet the challenges of uncertain times.


Civil Service Learning (CSL)

Civil Servants: you can sign up for our offerings by following these guidelines.

Which WIG offerings can be seen on the CSL Portal?

All of WIG's longer-term leadership programmes are allowed as part of CSL, and as such do not require special permission to be used (other than your organisation's normal internal process for budgetary approval). All but two of WIG's 1-day courses/development seminars are also included.
