The Institute of Leadership & Management

Trustee Elections 2020

The Institute of Leadership & Management is looking to appoint three Trustees as part of its Board renewal cycle. This is a major opportunity for you to take a leading role in the development of your Institute.

We have ambitious plans for our future as an innovative and growing community, capable of pushing the boundaries of leadership practice and engaging people globally to inspire the next generation of leaders.

Becoming a Trustee offers a fantastic opportunity to develop your leadership practice, your strategic skills, your network and to make a significant contribution to how leadership is developing in the 21st century.

Our Trustees work collaboratively, bringing constructive challenge to all matters under consideration and always upholding The Institute’s values of Authenticity, Vision, Ownership, Collaboration and Achievement.

We are looking to appoint three Members, Fellows or Companions to our Board for a period of three years. Responsible for the strategic and financial stewardship of the Institute, Trustees will need to commit to attending Board meetings and engaging in debate and decision making in-between formal meetings.

The Institute of Leadership & Management is committed to the principle of equal opportunity for all Trustee board members and staff. All decisions are based on business needs, role requirements, as well as individual experience and expertise.

We particularly welcome applications from women and individuals from ethnic minority groups, as we are currently underrepresented in these areas. We are also keen to attract people who are employed within SMEs or public-sector organisations.

It is vital that our Board has a good diversity of knowledge, skills and other attributes and as such, we are encouraging applications from people who can demonstrate a track record of experience in one or more of the following areas:

  • Board governance
  • Monitoring and evaluation of financial performance
  • Strategy development and evaluation
  • Strategic risk evaluation and monitoring
  • Change management
  • Organisation design
  • Talent development and succession planning
  • IT Infrastructure
  • Technology development
