Junior Leader Network Upcoming Event

four cutout figures with letters JLNE on themAre you interested in reaching your full potential but don’t know where to start or perhaps seeking a promotion in the Civil Service?

Are you interested in learning about and from other government departments?

If the answer to any of these questions is yes then use one of your 5 learning days and come along to our next Junior Leaders Networking Event.

The Junior Leaders Networking Events (JLNE) are aimed at colleagues in grades AA – EO.  It provides colleagues with the opportunity to network with their peers in other departments, learn and hear from inspirational speakers. The Network was relaunched at the start of 2019 and has since engaged with over 200 civil servants from at least 15 different departments. Attendees rate the events as inspirational, relevant and very informative.

The testimonials from our last event in Norwich says it all:

"I just wanted to let you know that I applied for and was successful in a Deputy Team Leader role - the junior leaders session was a great catalyst for my self confidence in going for it and I hope the initiative continues." Suzanne

"The event has certainly made me think outside the box so to speak and start to look at opportunities in the Civil Service." Katie

"Several people said to me yesterday that it had changed their outlook and made them think about their futures" – Civil Service Local Lead

      We have no plans to run these events in other areas at the moment but if we do, details will be published here on the blog. Make sure you sign up for alerts (in the right hand column) so you don't miss anything of interest.

    Will there be an event in the North Region, (Cumbria / Newcastle)?

    And similar for HEO/SEO - there seems to be a gap in provision for those grades?

      These events developed from an Academy project in our region whereby staff at AO and EO level felt there wasn't an opportunity for them to network with their peers, and so created these events themselves to fill the gap. They've continued since purely because we have found volunteers who go out and create the content, source speakers etc

      So if you would like to see these events recreated, perhaps you can collaborate with us and volunteer to make this happen. If this is of interest, please feel to contact us to discuss further.
