Seren Group and Chwarae Teg have created an exciting opportunity. Non-Executive Director Shadowing Opportunities. Gain practical experience, skills and confidence.

 

Thank you to everyone who applied by the 8 June!.

 

This opportunity was aimed at encouraging more young women ( aged 18-25 ), into Non-Executive Director roles, providing a programme of shadowing opportunities that will take place over 18 months.

Practical experience and training on governance and the role of a Non-Executive Director.

The population of Wales is close to being 50/50 split between women and men.

This gender split isn’t however reflected in senior decision making roles in the workplace, be it the private, public or third sectors.

Across the board women continue to be underrepresented in these roles and this has an impact both on the ability for women to progress to senior posts and also on the decision making capabilities of the organisations concerned. ~ 50/50 by 2020.

Who are we?

Seren Group are an innovative and vibrant Group of organisations working in the not-for-profit sector providing housing and support that makes a real difference to people’s lives.

Chwarae Teg is the Welsh Charity that helps women achieve and prosper. Working to ensure that women have equal access to education, training, employment and entrepreneurship opportunities and address the barriers that prevent them from reaching their full potential.

The opportunity.

Seren Group is working with Chwarae Teg to provide a unique opportunity for two women to undertake an 18 month programme to learn about governance and the role of Non-Executive Directors.

The programme will enable you to gain practical experience and provide you with the skills and confidence to apply for future positions in public life.

Did you know:

Women make up 50% of the population in Wales, yet are still underrepresented in senior decision making roles. Wales needs greater diversity at top levels in organisations, charities, government to create positive change.

What next? Well, until next time, good luck everyone!
