WIG’s traditionally high-level networks now help tomorrow’s leaders reap the benefits of cross-sector networking earlier in their careers.
Our Early Career Network brings together future leaders 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.
The network incorporates targeted development opportunities with a series of briefings and events, many suggested by the network itself - so do get in touch with your ideas.
We run 4 or 5 free events for early career professionals (including graduates, apprentices & high potentials) from WIG members a year designed around personal development topics. These evening events (allowing you to come after a normal day in the office) are a great opportunity to network before and after with your peers from a range of public, private and voluntary sector organisations.
Recent topics covered have included:
